KOLKATA: Mason Robertson scored a brace as Real Kashmir came from a goal down to beat Aizawl 3-1 in the I-League at the VYBK Stadium on Tuesday.
After a defensive error had given Aizawl FC the lead through Lalremsanga in the 26th minute, Lukman Adefemi's strike in the 34th minute was followed by two goals from Robertson in the 56th and 72nd minutes.
Real Kashmir have thus extended their unbeaten streak to nine games and could remain top of the league standings, if Churchill Brothers drop points against NEROCA on Wednesday.
In the 26th minute, however, a goal-kick by Aizawl FC goalkeeper Zothanmawla was misjudged by Robertson and the ball bounced over his head. Lalremsanga took the loose ball and it slotted past a helpless Samanta.
In the 68th minute, Robertson's long throw-in once again found Lukman Adefemi inside the box in what was almost a replay of the first goal. However this time, the Aizawl goalkeeper denied Adefemi from scoring his second.
Robertson then made it 3-1 with a free-kick that he took directly from 30 yards out. IANS IANS
