Saif Sporting Club picked up their first win of the Bangladesh Premier League season after beating Mohammedan Sporting Club Limited 2-1 Thursday in Comilla’s Shaheed Dhirendronath Datta Stadium.
Mohammedan, who lost to the same opponents in the season opening Federation Cup quarter-final, in contrast tasted their first defeat in the league campaign.
The Black and Whites could’ve taken the lead in the 12th minute but Habibur Rahman Sohag’s free kick struck the crossbar.
Saif then took control of the tie right on the verge of the first half whistle, first taking the lead through forward Aminur Rahman in the 44th minute before Nigerian midfielder John Okoli doubled their lead in the added time.
The Motijheel outfit reduced the deficit in the hour mark through Japanese midfielder Uru Nagata’s header from a Sohag set-piece.
