Tollygounge Agranami get their first win of the CFL season
Tollygounge Agranami registered their first win of the current Calcutta Football League season, after defeating George Telegraph by a 2-1 scoreline on Tuesday. The club from South Kolkata looked to get onto the attack early on, as they completely dominated the first half.
However, it took them 53 minutes to find the first goal of the game, when Alfred scored with a powerful shot. Tollygounge managed to double their lead nine minutes later through a Surabuddin goal. George Telegraph were not ready to give in so early though, and managed to halve the deficit, as Subha Kumar headed the ball spectacularly into the goal. Their late charge was not enough to salvage a draw, with Tollygounge holding on to their slender lead.
This win takes Tollygounge to the second spot on the CFL table, tied on four points with Peerless SC. Tollygounge and Peerless had played out a goalless draw against each other in their first game.
