East Bengal hold Mohun Bagan in rip-roaring CFL derby

East Bengal came back from two goals down to hold Mohun Bagan 2-2 and share the spoils in a rip-roaring Calcutta Football League (CFL) derby encounter at the packed Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan here on Sunday.

Playing in front of 60,000-odd spectators, Pintu Mahata (20th) gave Mohun Bagan the lead, while Ugandan Henry Kisekka doubled the advantage around 10 minutes later.

East Bengal's Costa Rican World Cupper Johnny Acosta (45+2) pulled one back just before half-time with Laldanmawia Ralte (62nd) equalising in the second half which belonged to the red and gold brigade.
