The Indian duo Arvinder Singh and Gurjinder Singh guided Mohammedan Sporting Club to come from a goal down to win a vital encounter of Green Delta Premier Division Hockey League defeating the reigning champions Mariner Young’s Club by 3-1.

Held at the Maulana Bhahani Hockey Stadium, Gurjinder Singh sounded the early in the second half to equalise the margin and Arvinder Singh converted a couple of penalty corners at the late hour, as Mohammedan stunned the favourites Mariner to earn full three valuable points. MSC shocked their arch rivals Abahani 2-1 in their previous match.

Hassan Jubair Niloy was the lone scorer for Mariner, who led the defending champions with a super flick on 35th minute.  

Mohammedan generated the first attack and also opened the first scoring chance early on fourth minute of the match but Rabbi Saleh let down despondently at edge of the area when his hit went outside the post.

Mohammedan could have taken the lead early on seventh minute but the day’s golden opportunity was squandered by one of their Indian players Arvinder Singh when the forward’s feeble penalty stroke hit blocked by Mariner goalkeeper Asim Gope. This time Asim Gope made a danger tackle to Mohammedan forward to Gurjinder Singh.

Mariner Young’s, who were also on attacking approach right from the first whistle created first chance on 29th minute with obtaining a penalty corner, but a combination of Hassan Jubair Niloy, Rezaul Babu and Chandan was confidently denied by Mohammedan goalkeeper Zahid Hossain.

Mariner scored goal from their second real attempt when Niloy’s strike came rather out of the blue but was no less impressive for the fact as he wiggled his way into space on the left of the penalty area and flicked inside the far corner of the board just in the last few seconds of the first half on 35th (1-0).

After trailing by a 0-1 goal, Mohammedan became desperate to bounce back and this time Gurjinder Singh did not make mistake to convert the second stroke for Mohammedan to make the tally on 44th 1-1 on 44th minute.

The nerve shattering and tensed match was interrupted for 15 minutes as both sides appealed for reviews.

After restart Mohammedan won two successive penalty corners from strong counter attacks and the formidable Mohammedan scored from both the PCs when Arvinder Sigh converted with super drags with the same combination of Shamser Singh, Kamaruzzaman Rana and Arvinder Singh on 64 and 68th minute respectively (3-1).
