United Sports Club squander full points
Kolkata: Local challengers United Sports Club squandered points as they settled for a 2-2 draw against 10-men Sporting Clube de Goa in their return-leg I-League fixture at the Yuba Bharati Krirangan on Saturday.
Sporting drew first blood when Ogba Kalu Nnanna put the team ahead in the 30th minute.
But the home team bounced back in style with second-half goals from James Singh (50th) and Bello Rasaq (53rd) to take a 2-1 lead.
There were more misery in store for the Goans who were reduced to 10 players minutes after conceding the lead, when Jovel Martins earned his second yellow to be sent off.
But just when Sanjoy Sen`s wards were heading towards three points, Sudanese recruit James Moga restored parity with an 87th-minute goal.
United`s title hopes got a rude jolt after the draw as they now have 29 points, while the Goan outfit have 24.
