FC Bengaluru United beat Mohammedan

Durand Cup

Kalyani, Sep 14: FC Bengaluru United notched up a 2-0 win over Mohammedan SC to finish top of Group A in the Durand Cup football tournament here on Tuesday.
Both sides had already made it to the quarter-finals, so the Black Panthers will be going through as Group A runners-up. The game was goalless at half-time and owing to the rain-hit conditions, the deadlock was turning to be hard to break at the Kalyani Municipality Stadium.
The breakthrough finally arrived in the 64th minute when Bengaluru’s Thokchom James Singh rose above his marker to score the opener. With only one goal separating the two sides, the game was headed towards a tense finish in the final few minutes.
Mohammedan conceded a penalty in the fifth minute of stoppage time. Slovenian forward Luka Majcen stepped up and made no mistake in converting the spot-kick and rubberstamping Bengaluru United’s status as Group A kingpins. (PTI)
