East Bengal came from behind to beat ONGC FC 2-1 in the second round of matches in group C that was played at the Kanchenjunga Stadium, Siliguri, on Sunday.

Katsumi Yusa gave Bibek Bhowmick’s side the lead in the ninth minute, while Edeh Chidi scored the equaliser (45+3') before Manandeep Singh's 82nd strike proved the winner over a 10-man ONGC FC.

A quick start by the newly promoted I-League side earned themselves the advantage through their Japanese midfielder Katsumi Yusa who was set up by Sorabuddin Mollick from the right wing, which they held on to until the end of the first half.

East Bengal's constant efforts throughout the first 45 minutes bore fruit when Nigerian striker Edeh Chidi found the back of the net with a well taken curling free-kick.

ONGC were firm at the back for as long as they could but the Kolkata giants finally broke their guard when Manandeep Singh, who came in for Subodh Kumar in the 73rd minute, scored the winner in the 82nd minute.

East Bengal, with this win, are tied on points with Sporting Clube de Goa but the latter leads the table having scored a goal more.
