Churchill get better of Arrows

Henri Arnaud hit a brace in Churchill Brothers Sports Club’s impressive 3-1 victory over Pailan Arrows in an I-League clash at Duler Stadium here.

After a barren first session, Prathamesh Maulingkar gave Pailan Arrows a stunning lead in the 57th minute but within the next eight minutes, Pailan Arrows crumbled in the face of some sustained onslaught from the opposition.

Gabonese striker Henri scored two goals in three minutes and then Israil Gurung added his name to the score-sheet as the hosts won the second match on the trot at Duler’s artificial turf.

The win helped Churchill take the sole lead with 31 points from 13 matches, three points clear of Pune FC who lost against Prayag United, while Pailan Arrows were stuck to the eighth spot with 14 points from as many matches.


United SC struck twice in the second half to blank Pune FC 2-0, ending a six-match winning run for the visitors, in a round 15 I-League fixture here on Wednesday.

After a goal-less first half that saw Pune FC dominate the proceedings, United SC brought the turnaround through a superb Lalkamal Bhowmick goal in the 68th minute, while Ranty Martins completed the tally in the 85th minute.

Having pocketed a second straight win, with their last one coming against defending champions Dempo, the Eelco Schattorie-coached side climbed to the top five in the table with 20 points.

For the otherwise consistent Pune FC (28 points), it was their first loss in nine matches.
