Fatorda: ATK Mohun Bagan emerged the better side on the night registering a convincing 3-1 victory over arch-rivals SC East Bengal at the Fatorda Stadium on Friday. With this win, the Mariners finish the season of the 100th year of the legendary Kolkata derby with a double over the red-and-golds.

ATKMB logged five wins in a row now and are clear of Mumbai City FC by five points at the top with the latter having a game in hand.

Roy Krishna (15’) opened the scoring for the Mariners before SCEB pulled one back through an own goal from Tiri (41’). Krishna later set up goals for David Williams (72’) and Javier Hernandez (89’) to help the green-and-maroons secure the derby bragging rights while strengthening their lead at the top.

ATKMB were more dominant in the opening half, creating more chances. They  made their intentions clear from the start, putting the SCEB defense under pressure.

Their perseverance paid off as the Mariners were first to draw blood. Tiri pumped a long ball upfront into the box for Krishna. The Fijian displayed great control to trap the ball before producing a neat finish, extending his goal tally to 12 for the season.

Bagan fashioned another great chance in the 23rd minute but SCEB custodian Subrata Paul made a fine save. Williams threaded a through ball into the box for Marcelinho whose effort was parried away by Paul.
