Mohd Sporting, Fransa finish with draw

Kolkata:

Local outfit Mohameddan Sporting and Goa's Fransa Pax put up a shoddy display to finish with a goalless draw in the tenth National Football League in Kolkata on Sunday. The Kolkata team, however, had the consolation of ending their run of losses as they took their points kitty to 11 from nine outings, while Fransa moved to four from eight games. In sharp contrast to last night's thrilling tie between East Bengal and Sporting Clube-de-Goa, the insipid football on view acted like a tranquilliser for the spectators who crowded the Salt Lake stadium. The game was confined mostly to the midfield, but the easiest chance came Sporting's way in the 83rd minute when Palash Karmakar's incisive centre saw Raman Vijayan unleashing a goal-bound shot.But Fransa custodian Virender Singh brought off a fine save showing good reflexes.
