Holders East Bengal and Churchill Brothers carved out contrasting victories to set up a final clash in the 108th IFA Shield football tournament. East Bengal struck once in each half to prevail over Vasco Sports Club, Goa 2-0, while Churchill Brothers scraped past a fighting Tata Football Academy 3-2 in semi-final outings at the Salt Lake stadium. Ghanaian Suley Musah emerged the hero in East Bengal's victory as he not only netted the first goal, but also played the key role when Jiten Rai doubled the tally in the dying minutes of the exchange in the flood-lit stadium. In the first semi-final, Kasif Jamal, Nigerian Yakubu and substitute Ratan Singh found the target for Churchill, while the Jamshedpur-based Academy struck through Bhola Prasad and Debabrata Roy.
