Kalyani, West Bengal, Dec 16: Wiping off a first-half deficit, George Telegraph scraped past United SC 2-1  to enter the final of the 123rd IFA Shield tournament. George Telegraph and Real Kashmir will now fight for top honours.

United SC went on the offensive from the word go and shot into the lead in the 18th minute with a goal from Basudeb Mondal.

On resumption, George threw caution to the wind, firing in two goals – Saddam Hossain in the 78th minute and Stanly Eze in the 82nd – to take the fight out of United. Though United launched a last-gasp assault to draw level, George held on to their slim lead to book their place in the final.

George Telegraph will face Real Kashmir on 19th December at the VYBK in the final.
