Arambagh taste 1st win in BPL

19 Aug,2017



Dhaka, BdChronicle:


Arambagh Krira Sangha tasted their maiden win in the 10th Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) football beating Brothers Union by 2-1 goals in the 4th round match at Bangabandhu National Stadium on Friday.

 

With this win, Arambagh collected three points from four encounters, having one win and three losses while Brothers remained in their previous collection of two points with two draws and two losses.

 

In the match, unlucky Brothers gave the lead to Arambagh conceding a same-side goal in the very 6th minute of match.

 

Arambagh’s Nigerian forward Alamli Bukola Olalekaw took a powerful right-footed shot from the right of the box when Brothers goalie Abdul Kader fisted it but his attempt was rebounded with onrushing defender-cum-captain Ashraful Karim’s head to find the net, 1-0.

 

Midfielder Shahrier Bappy delivered a cross from the top right corner of the six-yard box which onrushing Alamli connected with his left foot to place the ball home from goalmouth in the 9th minute, 2-0.

 

Brothers reduced the gap in the stopgap time after 90 minutes as their substitute forward Siyo Zunapio’s (Congo) shot from the left part of the box got the net off a cross from forward Ntim Twum Frank (Ghana), 2-1.    

 

The remaining 2nd half of the match ended in some fruitless attacks and counter-attacks from the both sides.

 

Brothers had a golden chance in the stopgap time of the first half. Forward Ariful Islam Shanto delivered a cross from the right side but Haitian forward Augustin Walson delayed to take the left-footed shot from top of the six-yard box and Arambagh goalie Akkas Sheikh dived to save the ball which passed through his grip before a defender saved the post from the goalmouth.
