Mohammedan Sporting qualify for semifinals in Futsal Club Championship!

A game where Mohammedan Sporting had the opportunity to become the first team to qualify for the semifinals of the Futsal Club Championship, the team from Kolkata came out with flying colours as they defeated Chanmari Zothan by a margin of 5-1 on Tuesday, November 9.

Filbert Pereira opened the scoring for Mohammedan Sporting on the 11th minute mark, with neither team going too heavily to attack the position goal. For the entirety of the first half, it looked like both teams were waiting for the other to commit a mistake and once they did, pounce on it immediately. Mohammedan Sporting went into the break with the slightest of leads and the game still up for grabs for either team.

However, after the break, the floodgates opened when Filbert scored his second of the game in the 22nd minute to give his side a much needed cushion. This forced Chanmari Zothan to come out of their shells and leave spaces for the opposition team to attack. Hilton Fernandes and Snedden made the most out of those spaces as they scored a goal each, stretching their team’s lead to 4 goals.

Roluahpuia pulled one back for the side from Mizoram but it was just a consolation goal for them. Filbert in the end, put the icing on the cake for Mohammedan Sporting by scoring a goal in the 38th minute and completing his hattrick.

Having topped the table in Group A, Mohammedan Sporting will face-off against the winners of group B in the first semifinal on Friday, November 12.
