Eagles played with much guts against ASC and prevented them to come back to winning ways in Citrus Ventures BDFA Super Division League.
ASC always a gritty side in the local football league started as favorites against Bangalore Eagles. Eagles this season managed to build a formidable side under the stewardship of footballer Chinta Chandrasekhar Rao comprising young Manoj Kannan, former Junior India International and Indian Arrows and Bengaluru FC player Vishal Ravindra, and former Santosh Trophy player Gopi.
After a goalless first half, ASC started the second half with a barrage of attacks mainly through the left flank. They soon got the goal from a nice strike from Shafeel PP.
Showing some urgency Eagles made forays to the ASC territory. It was Vishal’s trademark long throw that fetched his team the much-needed equalizer - while clearing the throw that was looping inside the 18-yard box, ASC’s Deepak Pant headed the ball inside his own goal.
ASC was quick enough to counter back, however, the winning goal eluded them. The match ended in 1-1 draw.
