United SC go down fighting against Peerless !
Barasat, 2nd October 2015: United Sports Club tasted their first defeat in 2015-16 Calcutta Football League Premier Division - B, as the Binoo George coached side lost 0-1 to Peerless SC in their Round 8 encounter on Friday.
On a rainy afternoon at Barasat Stadium, Fuja Tope's Peerless took the lead in the 3rd minute through Anil Kisku which eventually proved to be match winner.
However through out the match United SC tried hard to restore the parity but poor finishing from strikers and some brilliant defending from Peerless defenders saw the Purple Brigade went down first time in the season. Peerless also came close to finding their second but United SC defence did a fine job in thwarting them. Veteran custodian Abhijit Mondal who missed the last match because of trial at ISL side Delhi Dynamos, saved a penalty in the 56th minute.
As result of this defeat United SC sliped to the second position in the league standings.
