Shillong Lajong took a 2-1 lead in the First Leg of their First Round clash with Kingfisher East Bengal at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Shillong today.


East Bengal need to win at least 1-0 in their home Second Leg at Barasat to qualify to the Semi Final. In a match quite similar to their last clash last Sunday Lajong FC dominated the proceedings and took the lead in the 33rd minute through Konsham Singh who nodded in a flag kick by TH Bipin Singh.


Dong Hyun Do restored parity for East Bengal in the 44th minute with a nice header following a clever flick on by Ranti Martins. Fabio Pena scored the winner in the 62nd minute from an assist by Issac Vanmalsawma following a melee in front of the East Bengal goal.


Robin Gurung (Lajong FC) was given marching orders following a bad foul on Abinash Ruidas while Nim Dorjee Tamang was also booked.
