Heartbreak for Bhawanipur as Indian Navy enter Durand semis

September 15, 2013 21:18 IST

Talismanic Brazilian Jose Ramirez Barreto struck the winning goal in the dying moments of the game but it wasn't enough to see his team Bhawanipur FC qualify for the semi-finals of the Durand Cup, in New Delhi on Sunday.

AIFF logoApart from Barreto (90+3 min), Snehasish Dutta (25th, 40th min) struck twice while Manjit Singh (78th min) found the back of the net on one occasion for Bhawanipur.

A Sudheesh (58th, 59th min) and Jony Chand Singh (48th min) scored for Air India.

Despite a hard-fought 4-3 win over Air India, Bhawanipur bowed out of the tournament having failed to win their final group league match by a clear margin of two goals.

Indian Navy and ONGC will be pitted against each other in the second semi-final while Kolkata giants Mohammedan Sporting Club will meet Mumbai Tigers in the first semi-final on Monday.

Indian Navy had played a goalless draw against Bhawanipur 0-0 and beaten Air India 2-0.
