A clinical Mohun Bagan outplayed visitor George Telegraph SC 4-0, on Sunday, to clinch the top spot in the Calcutta Football League standings with 11 points from six matches. George Telegraph, on the other hand, slipped to sixth place with nine points from five matches below giants East Bengal and Mohammedan SC.

VP Suhair gave the Mariners an early lead when, in the 16th minute, he headed a floater from Lalramchullova to the back of the net.

Spanish striker Salva Chamorro slotted home next, redirecting Gurjinder's cross, as a clueless GT goalkeeper Laltu Mondal could do nothing but stare.

As it happened

In the second half, Mohun Bagan did look a bit vulnerable after George Telegraph forwards Joel Sunday and Justice Morgan infiltrated the former's box multiple times. However, the side recovered within time, and the eventual man-of-the-match Nongdomba Naorem scored a stunner, after Chullova pulled one back to him.

The last goal came when Naorem pulled off a wonderful assist to find Francisco Gonzalez, in the box, waiting to pounce on an available opportunity. He did so, finding the back of the net at the far post, courtesy a sharp header to seal the game for the Shobuj Maroon squad.
