Atlanta FC survived a strong challenge from a young spirited Iron Born FC (CFCI) Under-19 in a keenly contested Super Division match

Mumbai: Atlanta FC survived a strong challenge from a young spirited Iron Born FC (CFCI) Under-19 in a keenly contested Super Division match while PIFA Colaba outclassed Bombay Muslims with strong 2nd half display

The Atlanta outfit raced to a 3-0 lead with striker Vishnu Menon scoring a brace of goals and Kunal Mhatre netting one. But, the Iron Born lads put up a fighting display and struck twice in the second period through Amrit Semwal, Athar Ansari. But, they fell short of scoring the equalizing third goal and ended up on the losing side.

Meanwhile in Elite Division encounter played out between PIFA Colaba and Bombay Muslims, a strong second half display ensure PIFA ran away with a comfortable 3-0 win. Hafiz Rehman broke the deadlock early in the 2nd half with a goal from a Free-kick. Minutes after the hour mark, Hafiz doubled the lead with shot from just outside the box finding the back of the net. As the match entered the final third, Stephen Crasto finished off the game with a delicate header to beat an onrushing keeper inside the box and make it 3-0 in favour of PIFA Colaba.
