It rained and it rained goals today for Mohun Bagan as they breezed into the final of the Sikkim Governor's Gold Cup 2017 after a 16-year gap. Dipanda Dicka and Ansumana Kromah scored braces to put the Mariners 4-0 ahead against the hapless Mumbai-based outfit and super sub Naro Hari Shrestha added another in the dying stages.

That's all from us today. Until next time, good bye.
...
Full-time: Mohun Bagan 5-0 ONGC
...
We are into stoppage time now as the downpour has started again. Mohun Bagan 5-0 ONGC at the end of regulation time.
...
88' Another striker on the pitch, one more goal for Bagan. Naro Hari Shrestha has made this a rout by netting Bagan's fifth in the 88th minute. This has become unbearable for the ONGC players now as the Mariners' quality is clearly shining through. 
...
88' GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL MOHUN BAGAN!
...
The clock is ticking towards the full-time whistle and both sets of players have already settled on the 4-0 result with the lack of intent towards the end of the match clearly showing. Referee Routh has only a few minutes before blowing the final whistle. As things stand. it's Mohun Bagan 4-0 ONGC.
...
The fourth goal was Dicka's final contribution as he is taken off for Naro Hari Shrestha in the dying embers of the game. Both Dicka and Kromah scored braces today and neither was allowed to complete their hat-tricks. 
...
85' As we enter the final few minutes of the game, Bagan lead ONGC 4-0.
...
83' Dicka scores his second of the afternoon to put the Mariners four goals ahead. It has been a procession today and Bagan have clearly shown their superiority on the pitch. Two goals each for their two strikers also stand them in good stead for the final.
...
83' GOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL MOHUN BAGAN!
...
We are into the last 10 minutes of the match as Mohun Bagan are cruising to the final of the 37th Sikkim Gold Cup. With a 3-0 lead against a toothless ONGC, the game is all but done and dusted.
...
80' Mohun Bagan are not letting up despite being three goals ahead. The Mariners are peppering the ONGC defence with attacks and a fourth goal before the full-time whistle is very much possible. The scoreline reads 3-0 in Bagan's favour.
...
A bit of history: Mohun Bagan last reached the Gold Cup final in 2001 and they went on to beat Arambagh Krira Chakra in the final 4-0. Could history repeat itself this year?
...
70' The scoreline reads 3-0 in Mohun Bagan's favour.
...
With only one quarter of the game left to play, Mohun Bagan have all but sealed their place in the final.
...
64' Kromah will not complete his hattrick today as the two-goal hero goes off to be replaced by new signing Yuta Kinowaki. The Japanese will slot into midfield with Dicka playing alone up top.
...
62' Another goal by Kromah and Mohun Bagan have sealed the game now. The Liberian scores his brace and is now primed to complete his hat-trick.
...
62' GOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLL MOHUN BAGAN!
...
60' Mohun Bagan 2-0 ONGC. Nikhil Kadam, the young winger, comes on for the final 30 minutes as the Mariners enter cruise control mode.
...
51' It's still 2-0 to Mohun Bagan who look the most likely to score next. ONGC tried to go on the offensive after conceding early in the 2nd half. However, Kingshuk and co in the Bagan defence hold firm.
...
47' Kromah gets on the scoresheet this time with a headed goal that came - surprisingly - from a long throw-in. The Mariners are in cruise control now.
...
And we start the 2nd half proceeding with Mohun Bagan immediately taking the lead. It's 2-0 Bagan now.
...
The half-time whistle is blown as Mohun Bagan lead at the break through a Dipanda Dicka strike in the 23rd minute.
...
Half-time: Mohun Bagan 1-0 ONGC
...
45+1' Only one minute added on at the end of the first half.
...
42' Kromah misses a gilt-edged chance to put Bagan 2-0 ahead. The Liberian misses a sitter from close range.
...
We are edging towards the half-time whistle and the scoreline still stands at 0-0.
...
40' At the 40-minute mark, the scoreline still reads 1-0 in Bagan's favour. In all honesty, the Green and Maroons should've been 3-0 up only for the profligacy of Dicka. 
...
35' Dicka has been the real star so far but this time his effort from outside the ONGC penalty area is parried by Bilifang Narzary, who only manages to push it to Kromah's path. The Liberian, however, misses the target from the rebound.
...
33' It's 1-0 to Mohun Bagan at this stage and they are threatening to add more.
...
24' Dicka, the most prominent attacker in the match so far, puts the Mariners ahead after a fine assist by Sk Faiaz. Bagan lead 1-0 as we reach the 30th-minute mark.
...
24' GOOOOOOAAAAALLLL MOHUN BAGAN!
...
24' The conditions aren't helping either team at this stage as the game slows down with very little end-to-end action on show. Dicka has been the main striker so far.
...
20' Mohun Bagan 0-0 ONGC. No breakthrough yet for either team.
...
17' Dicka has already had 2 attempts on goal but the former Shillong Lajong striker has so far failed to trouble the scorers. Bagan take control of proceedings but the scoreline still reads 0-0.
...
15' The scoreline still reads 0-0 but Bagan have dominated proceedings with their strike duo of Dipanda Dicka and Ansumana Kromah.
...
At the 10-minute mark, the scoreline still reads 0-0.
...
5' It's still 0-0 at the Paljor Stadium under overcast conditions.
...
1' And we are underway at the Paljor Stadium in Sikkim.
...
Akash Routh is the referee today as rain welcomes both teams. ONGC from Mumbai stand in the way of Mohun Bagan and a Gold Cup final appearance.
