Calcutta Port Trust beat Covenant FC to enter semis

Gangtok,Sep18: Calcutta Port Trust upset Covenant FC, Lagos (Nigeria) 1-0 in the last quarterfinal encounter of the 31st All India Governor's Gold Cup football tournament at Paljor Stadium here to make it an all-Kolkatan affair in the semifinals and finals for the first time.

Ayan Chowdhury scored the all important goal for Calcutta Port Trust in the 72nd minute to sent the Nigerian team packing out of the annual tournament.

The Covenant FC players appeared to be out of depth as they failed to make their presence felt in the tournament in which they were arguably the fancied outfit.
