Bangladesh Premier League Football
Mohammedan suffers fourth consecutive defeat
The traditional black and white outfits Dhaka Mohammedan had suffered fourth consecutive defeat in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League as Saif Sporting Club defeated them by 2-1 goals on Wednesday at the Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka.
Once the local football followers would treat Mohammedan and Abahani as the top two teams of Dhaka League. Abahani is still maintaining the honour while Mohammedan has been in fear of facing the relegation from the top football event of the country.
In the ongoing league, the black and white outfits only won their first match against poor Team BJMC by 2-1 margin and lost all the matches afterwards.
On Wednesday, the Saif boys opened the net in the 11th minute of the match. Getting the ball in the danger zone of Mohammedan, South Korea striker Seungil Park passed it to Russia striker Denis Bolshakov near the small box and the foreigner found Mohammedan custodian Sarwar Jahan far from the post before lobbing the ball over the unprepared custodian and hit the net.
The Saif boys doubled the lead in the second minute of the second half. They put all their strength to score another from the very first second of the second half. South Korea striker Seungil Park provided the ball to Colombia defender Deiner Andres Cordoba Escarpeta with a grounder and the Colombian fired the post with a placing shot.
The black and white outfits managed to reduce the margin by one goal in the 68th minute. Getting a corner in the left side, midfielder Pasbon Mollah initiated it, Nigeria striker and skipper Nkwocha Kingsley Chigozie headed on it and local substitute striker Amir Hakim Bappy put it into the post with another header.
In the 82nd minute, both Mohammedan's substitute striker Jahid Hasan Ameli and Saif SC's custodian Ziaur Rahman Zia were shown yellow cards for engaging in a quarrel.
However, the digital timer of the match was off after the 60th minute of the match. BFF is becoming a laughing stock for such unprofessionalism now a days.
After the match, Saif boys moved to the second place from the fourth on the 13-team table.
