Mohammedan Sporting will play Mumbai Tigers in the first semi final on Monday, Sept. 16. This will be Mohammedan Sporting’s first Durand semi final since 2002.

Mohammedan Sporting made five changes to their playing eleven. The introduction of solid Brazilian defender Luciano Sabrosa strengthened the defence. Mohammedan Sporting used Ajay Singh as a lone striker and played in a 4-2-3-1 system. In the 16th minute, left back Colin Abranches sped down the left and sent a defence splitting cross and Ajay placed past an advancing goalkeeper Suvam Sen.

Against the run of play Kalighat Milan Sangha equalized at the half hour mark. Lanky defender Charles Dzisah headed goalwards a corner kick by skipper Supriya Bhakta. The ball hit the crosspiece and bounced in before it was cleared. However the goal was allowed.

Stung by this reversal, Mohammedan Sporting piled on the pressure. Penn Orji was tripped by Dzisah in the box and referee CR Srikrihan awarded a penalty kick. Orji’s weak penalty kick was palmed away by Suvam Sen. In added time of the first half, Dzisah again tripped Orji and received a second yellow card and was sent off.

Playing with ten men, Kalighat Milan Sangha adopted a defensive posture in the second half. Despite relentless pressure, Mohammedan Sporting struggled to score. Finally in the 62nd minute, substitute Khantan Paite crossed from right and Ajay broke the off-side trap and headed in. Orji was rewarded for his efforts when he scored with a rising shot in the 77th minute.

Coached by Bimal ghosh, Mumbai Tigers outclassed Sikkim United 6-2. Nippy striker Bikash jairu scored four goals ina row, the first hat-trick of the tournament.

Both ONGC and Indian Navy played a well contested semi final match. Indian Navy dominated possession but could penetrate ONGC’s well organized defence. ONGC used a lone striker, the Nigerian Henry Ezeh, with ample support from new recruit Lavino Fernandez from the flanks.

Lavino’s cross from the left in the 53rd led to a goalmouth scramble. Ezeh flicked into the net, as Indian Navy’s defenders struggled to clear the ball. Despite Navy’s constant pressure this proved to be the decisive goal. In the 79th minute, ONGC’s ace defender Karan Atwal was dismissed by referee Ratheesh Kumar, when he was shown his second yellow card. But ONGC re-organised their defence
