In the second session, Sreenidi dominated the game and scored the equaliser in the 67th minute when Gabriel positioned himself well for Rilwan Hassan’s cross from the left to slam one into the goal.

Sreenidi could have clinched the issue minutes later but Gabriel’s close-ranger was called off-side

Sreenidi will take on TRAU FC in its next game at Kalyani Stadium in West Bengal on November 19.
