I-League: Real Kashmir registers maiden win at home, beat Indian Arrows 2-0

Sunday - November 25, 2018 7:04 pm , Category : SPORTS
Srinagar, Nov 25 (IANS) A super strike from Surchandra Singh and a well-judged header from Bazie Armand ensured Real Kashmir FC's maiden victory at home, defeating the young Indian Arrows 2-0 here on Sunday.
With this win, Real Kashmir FC have now jumped up five spots to be placed at the 4th position with seven points from five games.
The home side fondly known as the 'Snow Leopards' started the game on an attacking note, making an attempt as early as the first minute but were unable to find the back of the net.
Coach David Robertson started with one change bringing in Surchandra Singh instead of the regular Danish Farooq, while Floyd Pinto of the Indian Arrows started with three changes in the squad viz; Rahim Ali, Khumanthem Ninthoigamba and Vikram Pratap Singh.
The Arrows started off on a defensive note but did make a few attempts from both sides but couldn't convert one to their favour. On the other hand, Real Kashmir FC who have been winless at home so far, were seemingly in a hurry to score as they were seen playing long balls more often, taking advantage of their heights as against the young visitors.
Real Kashmir FC finally found some respite when Surchandra Singh made no mistake in finding the back of the net from a brilliant cross from Mason Lee Robertson in the 25th minute.
The first-half ended with the home side Real Kashmir FC leading 1-0.
The second-half began with the Indian Arrows come in on an attacking note, making continuous attempts to score but the young colts seemed unlucky today as they failed to convert any opportunity that came their way.
Real Kashmir suddenly picked up their tempo and it was in the 68th minute when a beautiful corner kick from Surchandra Singh followed by a lofted shot from Danish Farooq to Armand saw the Cote D'ivorian make no mistake in doubling the lead for the hosts from an excellent header.
Indian Arrows were seen playing an organised game leading the possession but their inability to finish cost them the match.
