SCEB remains last on the table with 3 points off 6 matches while KBFC has earned 6 points from 5 games. East Bengal center-back Tomislav Mrcela (37’) opened his account in the ISL by scoring with a header before Kerala striker Alvaro Vazquez (44’) equalized with a well-taken shot just before the break.
There was a dearth of scoring opportunities in the first half until Mrcela found the back of the net. The central defender got on the end of a long throw from Raju Gaikwad and headed the ball past Prabhsukhan Gill from close range.
With only a minute to go to half-time, Vazquez’s right-footed shot from outside the box took a wicked deflection off Mrcela to go in.
