Play for Nepal: East Bengal lifts Garden City Fan's Derby via penalties

When you have the biggest on-field enemies, drama is bound to happen. That was exactly the atmosphere of the Fan’s Derby organized by Love for the Game in memory of Nepal earthquake.

After a stalemate in regulation time, the match went on to the penalties. Other than the online viewers watching the live streaming on www.beamitlive.com/loveforthegame, there were few hundred supporters present on the venue, Kicks on Grass, jeering and cheering. Regulation time saw some good skills from both teams, missing with goals by a whisker. 

The derby culminated at penalties with East Bengal getting the better of Mariners@Bangalore by a narrow 4-3 margin. 

Mukul Das was adjudged the best player for Mariners@Bangalore while Jit getting the best player award for the winning team. 

The cause is ably supported by the reigning ISL- Indian Super League Champions Atl├ętico de Kolkata
