ITI avenge first leg defeat against HAL

Indian Telephone Industries avenged their first leg defeat against debutants Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, winning the second meeting by a solitary goal in the 19th round of the Tata National Football League in Bangalore on Sunday.

After a barren first half, George Ekeh scored the all-important goal, powerfully heading home a floater from Zaheer Abbas in the 70th minute.

The victory enabled ITI to move to the fifth slot in the 12-team league with a tally of 30 points. HAL remained on 25.

In a keenly-contested game between the Bangalore sides, the first half saw both teams making purposeful raids but without success.

In the second session, ITI held a slight edge as a result of which Ekeh scored what turned out to be the match-winner.
