1st Division: Sagar Singh wins it for Somaiya Sports Academy
5th December 2017, Mumbai: In the MDFA – Mumbai District Football Association 1st Division, 10-man Somaiya Sports Academy produced a gritty performance to register a hard-fought 1-0 win over ICL Payyade SC in a pulsating Group A encounter at St. Xavier’s Ground, Parel on Tuesday evening.
With this result, Somaiya Sports Academy has made it two out of two wins so far. The remarkable thing is they are yet to concede a goal in as many games. Their strong and stubborn backline has proved to be quite hard to break.
Apart from a strong defense, their attack seems fantastic too. The trio of Tanmay Keluskar, Aditya Raichura and Sagar Singh had an impressive game earlier today which helped Somaiya Sports Academy to climb up to third place in Group A.
After a goalless first-half, the decisive goal came in the 72nd minute when Sagar Singh made sure to place his effort comprehensively into the back of the net to give all three points to Somaiya Sports Academy. Although Somaiya were down to 10-man in the dying moments of the match after Mitesh Dama was shown his marching orders, Somaiya defended brilliantly to go away with a memorable victory.
