BJMC hold Abahani in BPL Football

DHAKA, Aug 11, 2017, (BSS)- Defending champions Abahani were forced to play a goalless draw by Team BJMC in the Saif Power Battery Bangladesh Premier League Football at the Bangabandhu National Stadium on Friday.

In the day's match, Abahani could have scored two goals to grab full three points, but luck did not favour midfielders Emon Babu and Landing Darboe as both their efforts in the 3rd and 38th mi returned to play after hitting the crosspiece.

The sky blue outfit dominated the second half of the match, but the BJMC defence managed to hold them back.

In the dying minute of the game, BJMC's Pashobaon Mollah's long drive flew inches over the Abahani crosspiece.
