A dramatic 3-4 goals defeat to Abahani Limited spoiled the title celebrations of Mariner Youngs’ Club as well as ended their unbeaten 13-match unbeaten run in the day’s Super Five match of the ongoing Premier Division Hockey at the Maulana Bhashani National Hockey Stadium in the capital on Thursday.

Mariner, who had 39 points from 13 consecutive wins, were needed just a draw in the day’s match to secure the title of the tournament. Now, they will need to earn at least a draw against Mohammedan in their last and 15th league match, scheduled to be held on Saturday at the same venue at 6:00pm.  

Bjorn Kellerman and Khorshadur Rahman scored twice each for Abahani. Bjorn scored in the 7th and 26th minutes of the game while Khorshadur scored two goals in the 59th and 60th minutes for the team.

Shohanur Rahman scored a treble for Mariner in the 14th, 17th and 28th minutes.

With the day’s feat, Abahani earned 39 points from 15 matches.
