Kingfisher East Bengal bowed out of the Hero Federation Cup in the Round of eight when they lost 3-4 on aggregate to Shillong Lajong at Vidyasagar Krirangan, Barasat tonight.


In the scheduled 90 minutes East Bengal led 2-1 which neutralised their 2-1 loss to Shillong Lajong 1-2 on their home turf last Sunday.


In the extra time that followed Uliiams Bomfin scored the winner for Lajong in the 114th minute.



East Bengal started the second leg at a brisk pace but were in arrears in the 17th minute when Fabio Pena scored off a penalty after Deepak Mondal handled the ball in the prohibited area. Ranti Martins restored parity by also converting a spot kick in the 23rd minute after a Lajong defender handled the ball in the box.


Lalrindika Ralte put East Bengal 2-1 ahead in the 36th minute of a Dong Hyun Do assist. The score remained the same after regulation time and as the teams were locked 3-3 after two legs the match went into extra time. As already mentioned Ulliams scored the decider in the 114th minute and Lajong qualified 4-3 on aggregate.


Arnab Mondal, Sanju Pradhan and Lalrindika Ralte were booked in the match.
