Santosh Trophy: Karnataka crash out of Santosh after losing to Kerala in a thriller

10 minutes of added time, Kerala scores in the 8th and 9th minute with 1-2 down, and throws Karnataka out of Santosh Trophy. Was it a fairly officiated game? 

Karnataka simply needed a point to qualify for the final round of Santosh Trophy. However, making matter worse, they lose out to the runner-up of last edition Kerala 2-3. 

Top two teams qualify to the final round; Karnataka is virtually out of this tournament. With Tamil Nadu playing against a much easier opponent Andhra Pradesh in front of their home, Karnataka can only hope to qualify at the expense of Tamil Nadu, which is highly unlikely to happen.
