Punjab beats Karnataka 2-1 in a closely contested match of the Santosh TrophyMarch 27, 2018
Punjab kept their hopes alive of making it to the semi-final of the Santosh Trophy on Monday as they defeated the in-form Karnataka line up 2-1 in a league match of the tournament. In the do or die match, Karnataka took the lead with a fabulous goal from Rajesh S. Goals from Jitender Singh (18th) and Baltej Singh (26th) allowed Punjab to claw back into the game and win the match on full time.
Group B has been known as the group of death with both Punjab and Karnataka on 6 points. Goa is fourth with three points and it too has a slim chance of making it to the knockout stage. Mizoram has already sealed its fate, being the leaders with 9 points.
