In the 68th minute, the spanish duo of Mera & Santos linked between themselves brilliantly and Marcos de la Espada scored Quess East Bengal’s first goal.
In the 77th minute were again awarded a penalty for Jishnu Balakrishnan’s challenge inside the box on Santos. Jaime Santos Colado did not make a mistake this time and fired in the shot from the spot for their second goal.
With this win, Quess East Bengal are now 4th in the points ladder with 11 points from 8 matches.
