A world-class strike by World Cupper Carlos Hernandes helped Prayag United return to winning ways. They beat beating league-leaders Dempo SC 1-0 in a 14th round match of the I-League at the Municipal stadium in Kalyani, Kolkata, on Friday.

Costa Rican midfielder Hernandes scored with a spectacular free-kick in the final minute of regulation time to turn the tide in favour of Prayag United, who registered their first victory after successive defeats in the previous two rounds.

Prayag scored after Dempo were reduced to 10 men in the 86th minute, following the ejection of defender Debabrata Roy after two bookings.

With the availability of the full squad, Prayag United played true to potential, with Hernandes and Nigerian Ranty Martins powering the thrust of the home side.
