Full Time:
Mohun Bagan 5 - 0 Churchill Brothers

It was raining goals on a wet afternoon at the Barasat Stadium sees another goalfest in two days. Mohun Bagan decimated Churchill Brothers with their attacking play with goals from all their attacking mainstays. Mohun Bagan now climbs to the top of the Hero I-League standings thanks to their superior goal difference.
...
93' - CLOSE!! A good run from Asier Dicka but he is unable to finish the chance and looks disappointed on missing out on a chance of hat-trick.
...
91' - Faiaz goes down with a cramp as we see the referee attend to the winger before the physio comes to his aid.
...
90' - Five minutes of added time has been indicated by the fourth official as the score stands 5-0 in favor of the Mariners.
...
89' - Peter has been booked for a rough tackle on Dipanda Dicka as we head to the end of 90 minutes in Kolkata.
...
87'- Sony Norde comes back on the field and has his knee strapped with the captain braving the pain and will complete the match as Sanjoy Sen hopes it is not a big injury for his main man.
...
85' - Substitution for Churchill Brothers:
Nicholas Fernandes makes way for Alber Gonsalves as we have about 5 minutes of regulation time left.
...
84' - GOAL!! Sony Norde finally scores as he gets in from the left in his classic manner and finishes the effort well into the left bottom corner. However, he hurts himself in the process in what looks like a knee-related concern.
...
84 ' - Asier Dipanda Dicka has been adjudged the Hero of the Match for his brace of goals.
...
82' - DIcka almost has his hat-trick!! Faiaz cuts in from the right and passes it to Raynier who lays it up for Dicka but a Churchill defender is first to the ball and clears it away from the danger.
...
80' - CHANCE!!! First real attack from the Goans in the second half as Gurung went in from the right nutmegging the left-back and crossed it across the box but the shot was blocked by the defense of the home side.
...
75' - Norde, back on the pitch after his treatment takes a shot from the left edge of the box now, which is aimed at the near post but misses the target by some distance.
...
71' - Substitution for Churchill Brothers:
Joshua Vaz makes way for Suraj Singh
...
72' - Sony Norde takes a solo run into the box and goes down hurt after tussling with Precious for the ball. Any injury to the Haitian would be the biggest blow for Sanjoy Sen as the physio attends to the skipper.
...
67' - Meitei is booked for dangerous play as he caught Faiaz with a high-foot just outside the box on the right side.
...
65' - Sanjoy Sen plays it safe taking out Kromah as he looked in a bit of trouble as Gharami comes on for the goal-scorer.
...
63' - Kromah is back and running on the pitch as Norde lays it up for the Liberian but he shoots straight at the Churchill Brothers' keeper as Bagan continue to attack the visitors'  goal.
...
60' - Another concern for the Bagan side as it is Kromah who has gone down injured. Gurjinder Kumar has come on in place of Arijit Bagui for the home side. Kromah is being attended to by the physio as we will soon know his fate.
...
58 ' - Offside Again!! The Bagan attacking trio have been attacking in large numbers but are straying offside with each of the three been called offside in the past minutes by the linesman. Arijit Bagui is down with a knock as the medical staff rushes in as the rain drizzles here in Kolkata with the spectators taking out their umbrellas as the Barasat doesn't have cover for the spectators.
...
4 ' - OFFSIDE!! Kromah manages to get on the end of Norde's pass and scores but he has been pulled back for offside. Churchill Brothers' defence is in shambles currently. 
...
48' - FOUR!! Churchill Brothers are caught again as Kromah capitalizes on the lethargy of Churchill defense and gets in to put a cross past the diving keeper for Faiaz to simply tap it in for the fourth goal of the afternoon.
...
46' - The second half begins with a bang as Dicka gets his second of the afternoon after Faiaz crossed it in and Dicka's well-timed run allowed him to tap it past the Churchill keeper. Incredible start for the Mariners.
...
Half Time:
Mohun Bagan 2 - 0 Churchill Brothers

The Mariners put in a commanding display as Kromah and Dicka strike to take the home side away to a 2-0 lead. Churchill Brothers have struggled to come into the game as Bagan midfielders have stood firm and the defense has been miserly. Stay tuned for the second half in about 15 minutes as we return.
...
47' - INCHES WIDE!!! Sony Norde gets the ball from Fernandes on the left and in his classic style, cuts into the box and crosses it for Dicka, who manages to get away from Precious' tackle and takes an effort that is just wide to the right of the Churchill goal. Almost a third goal there!!

...
33 ' - SECOND FOR BAGAN!! Dicka opens his I-League account for the season as a mistake by the Churchill defense allows him to run through between the defense and slot his shot past the keeper easily. Tough task ahead for Churchill Brothers now.
...
29' - Uttam Rai shoots from the top of the box but his effort goes over as he apologizes to his team-mates for being hasty with the shot.

...
21' - Kartik G is booked for a rash challenge as he becomes the first player to be booked today.
...

...
11' - Dicka is put through after a through ball but Kithan runs out and clears the danger. Good anticipation by the Churchill keeper.
...
3' - Yuta Kinowaki is down on the ground after a blow during a 50-50 tackle. He is substituted as Shilton D'Silva comes on for the former Shillong man
...
1' - And we're up and running in Kolkata as the Mariners kick-off the game as Sony Norde is on the ball straightaway.
