Impressive Central Railway lift MHAL Super League crown

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Mumbai: Central Railway produced an impressive display and emerged champions by comfortably defeating Mumbai Customs by a tennis score 6-3 margin in the Super Division final of the MHAL League at the MHAL-Mahindra Stadium, Churchgate on Monday evening. Mohd. Nizamuddin, the spearhead in Central’s attack, was the hero of their victory as he notched up a fine hat-trick in the second half.

The Central Railway outfit took off on the right track and were dominant through the match. They started in whirlwind fashion and were all over the Customs territory and enjoyed a 2-1 half time lead. They picked up steam in the second period scoring four times and could have won by a much bigger margin but were denied by Customs substitute goalkeeper Avtar Divedi who made some superb saves.

The railway outfit drew first blood in the fourth minute with Rajendra Pawar scoring in the 4th minute and Reuben Kedari getting the second in the 32nd minute, after Customs had equalised through Jayesh Jadhav in the 19th minute.

But after changing ends, Nizamuddin struck three quick goals in a span of eight minutes to virtually kill the contest. He scored with an angular drive in the 40th minute and four minutes later sounded the boards with a firm drive from the left side of the striking circle. He completed his hat-trick with a peach of an effort by controlling the ball on his stick before smashing it past a hapless Divedi in the 48th minute.

Results: Central Railway 6 (Rajendra Pawar 4th, Reuben Kedari 32nd, Mohd. Nizamuddin 40th, 44th, 48th, Brijendra Singh 69th) beat Mumbai Customs 3 (Jayesh Jadhav 19th, Abhishek Singh 57th, 68th). Player of the final: Mohd. Nizamuddin (Central Railway).
