Some spirited run saw Nagaland Police defeating Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL), Durgapur, by 3-1 goals to enter the quarter-finals of the 4th Oil Challenge Gold Cup Football Tournament which got under way at the Nehru Maidan in Duliajan on Saturday. Vizori scored the first goal for Nagaland Police in the 34th minute to put his team on the lead. Nagaland Police led the session 1-0 till the end of the first half. The SAIL team, which was pressing hard for the equaliser during the entire first half, found it within the third minute of the second half via a long ranger from Dev Kumar Roy. However, the Nagaland Police team after conceding the goal, was quick enough to reorganise itself and V. Kholi scored two more goals in the 72nd and 77th minutes to seal the fate of the Durgapur team. The SAIL team disappointed the spectators with their rough play. The team was also reduced to a 10-man side when referee Dwijendra Mohan Sarma gave marching orders to Suman Das “for breach of discipline and getting involved in unnecessary argument with the referee”. Two other SAIL players Animesh Murmu and Ganesh Das were also cautioned with yellow cards by the referee for rough play. Earlier, in the inaugural match on Saturday, Eastern Railways, Calcutta, defeated Dehing Football Club, Duliajan, by 2-0 goals. Peerless, Calcutta, will take on the challenge of ASEB, Guwahati, in tomorrow’s match. OIL chief managing director Nayanmoni Bora inaugurated the tournament.
