Scorching temperatures in the maximum city proved no deterrent to the players of Kenkre FC and Neroca FC at the Cooperage football ground, Mumbai. Kenkre FC, playing their second group game of the I League 2nd division national finals were fresh from a 2-2 draw against Delhi United FC a couple of days ago.A

Kouassi Yao played as a lone frontman for Kenkre FC, although he did drop deep occassionally to play as a false nine. His side did start the brighter of the two, as Neroca took their time to get into the game. The opening 10 minutes saw two injury breaks, both going Kenreas way. However it did seem that Kenkre FC had done their homewrok on Neroca, as the latter looked to break any kind of rhythm the away side seemed to be getting into.

The first opening came when the match was almost 20 minutes old, as Kouassi Yao muscled his way past two defenders only to be judged to have made a foul in the opponent box. Chances to shoot from distance kept popping up for Neroca, but were mostly wasteful. It was safe to say Kenkre had the majority of possession as the clock ticked 25 minutes for the water break.

Kenkre had a golden chance to open the deadlock when Kouassi Yao teed up Rohit Mirza courtesy a fast counter attack, but he shot agonisingly wide. At times it seemed that both the teams cancelled each other out in the midfield, a 5 v 5 midfield battle in the centre of the park. Interesting to think about the half time team talk, with both coaches surely looking for a win, hence a tactic jumble after the break being inevitable.

A rare defnesive lapse in the form of a misjudged clearance could have been the difference between the teams at half time, however the chance was squandered by Kenkre FC. Mackroy Peixoto, the creative lynchpin for Kenkre FC in the last match managed to win a foul right outside the penalty box as half time loomed, but the chance was not taken.

Just past the houras mark Neroca FC took the lead courtesy their substitute forward Felix Chidi who capitalised on a defensive mistake to calmly slot the ball past the Kenkre keeper Avilash Paul. It was a wake up call for the home side Kenkre. Just when Kenkre seemed to gradually come into the game and equalise, Neroca won a penalty and had the chance to put the game to bed.

Felix Chidi, who had opened the scoring for Neroca stepped up to take the penalty. Howeve Avilah Paul pulled off a spectacular diving save to keep Kenkre in the hunt.

Neroac FC put in a professional Aperformance to keep Kenkre out for the rest of the game to pull off a motivating victory. Its back to the drawing board for Kenkre.
