Kalyani, March 5 : Dennis Antwi’s 17th-minute penalty strike proved to be the difference as Gokulam Kerala FC defeated RoundGlass Punjab FC 1-0 win at the Kalyani Municipal Stadium on Friday, and go second in the I-League table.
Kerala are now level on points with third-placed TRAU and six points behind league leaders Churchill Brothers.
With vital points on the line for both contingents, the opening minutes of the match witnessed end-to-end stuff with both teams having a chance to take the lead. The first opportunity of the match fell to Dennis Antwi in the 8th minute when he latched onto a Mayakannan low-cross, however, his shot on the turn went inches wide of the goal.
For RoundGlass Punjab FC, it was Papa Diawara with a chance to put them ahead. In the 14th minute, Chencho Gyeltshen found Diawara inside the box with a swirling cross, but the forward failed to hit the target with his strike.
In the 16th minute, Saurabh Bhanwala brought down Dennis Antwi inside the box after the forward was trying to wriggle his way to create space. The referee pointed to the spot and Antwi coolly converted the penalty kick to hand the Malabarians a solitary goal lead.
The forward duo of Gokulam Kerala FC in Dennis Antwi and Philip Adjah gave problems to the RoundGlass Punjab FC defence and tried to double their team’s advantage before half-time. Meanwhile, Telem Suranjit Singh proved to be a handful for Gokulam defenders.
