It was a goalkeeping error that cost the defending champions the match while Lajong put in a commendable defensive display...
|TOP: WAILADMI PASSAH
The local lad from Meghalaya did not allow the Churchill Brothers strikers to combine in and around his team's 18 yard box. The Lajong defender made a vital interception to deny Bineesh Balan from getting on the end of Lenny Rodrigues' pass in the 14th minute while also blocking Balwant Singh's goal bound effort in the 34th minute. His positioning and anticipation was immaculate as his team kept a clean sheet.
|FLOP: ARINDAM BHATTACHARYA
Cornell Glen found himself with the ball in the opponent's box after goalkeeper Arindam Bhattacharya made a schoolboy error. With Glen lurking in the box, the ball slipped from the Churchill custodian allowing the Trinidad and Tobago striker to slot it into the right corner.
