Both the teams from Kolkata had an opportunity to top the table with a win in the match, but it was Southern Samity who beat Kalighat Milan Sangha 2-1 to move back on top in Group C's standings in the I-League division II preliminary rounds, on Monday.
David Ngaihte broke the deadlock for the winners in the 63rd minute when the Manipuri striker converted a pass sent in by Jamir Ali Mondal. Tuishim Mashangva then broke through the Kalighat defence to set up Ngaihte, who headed past rival goalkeeper Suvam Sen to double Samity's lead in the 77th minute.
Kalighat tried for a late fightback in the match and were only able to pull one back through James Gbilee, two minutes before regulation time. Samity however held on until the final whistle to register their third win in four matches.
