Durand Cup: Bengaluru FC overcome gritty Army Green to enter semis

They
now
come
up
against
FC
Goa
in
the
second
semi-final
scheduled
for
Wednesday
(Sept.
29)
at
the
same
venue.

Wungngayam
Muirang,
Leon
Augustine
and
Namgyal
Bhutia
got
on
the
score-sheet
for
BFC
while
Lallawmkima
and
Vibin
T
V
scored
for
the
Greens,
both
incidentally
via
penalties.

Army
Green
created
pressure
early
on
and
were
rewarded
for
that
as
well
as
Lallawmkima
scored
from
the
spot
in
the
9th
minute
to
the
give
the
regimental
side
a
lead.

However,
the
Naushad
Moosa
coached
BFC
did
not
take
long
to
bounce
back
as
Muirang
scored
the
equalizer
in
the
20th
minute,
courtesy
a
magical
free
kick
that
curled
into
the
back
of
the
net,
giving
Green’s
keeper
Sarath
no
chance
whatsoever.

BFC
played
an
attacking
game
post
that
and
created
quite
a
few
chances
but
failed
to
convert
any
of
them
in
the
first
half.

However,
they
did
not
take
long
to
go
ahead
in
the
second
as
Leon
Augustine
scored
the
second
for
his
team
just
minutes
into
the
second
half.
Namgyal
Bhutia
then
scored
the
third
just
before
the
three-quarter
hour
mark
to
give
the
Blues
a
comfortable
two
goal
cushion.

Dip
Majumdar
and
Deepak
Singh
did
create
their
chances
and
put
pressure
on
the
Bengaluru
goal
but
the
Blues
defence
did
well
to
keep
the
lead
intact.

In
the
last
few
minutes,
Army
Green
pulled
one
back,
through
another
spot-kick
but
it
was
all
over
by
then.

Wungngayam
Muirang
was
adjudged
the
Man
of
the
Match
for
his
excellent
overall
returns
in
the
game
including
the
goal
scored.
