T&T strik­er Willis Plaza was the toast of his Churchill Broth­ers team-mates af­ter he net­ted a 95th-minute win­ner in their 2-1 vic­to­ry over Aiza­wl in the In­di­an I-League on Sat­ur­day.

Fol­low­ing a goal­less first 45 min­utes, Churchill Broth­ers went ahead in the 74th-minute cour­tesy Gam­bian Daw­da Ceesay in the 74th minute at the Jawa­har­i­al Nehru Sta­di­um in Mar­gao Goa.

The nar­row ad­van­tage looked set to hold un­til the fi­nal whis­tle but a minute in­to time added on for stop­pages, Paul Ram­fangza­u­va drew Aiza­wl lev­el with a goal that seemed enough to earn his side a share of the points.

But there was still one more twist in the con­test as the T&T de­fend­er Radan­fah Abu Bakr pro­vid­ed the cru­cial as­sist for the 32-year-old Plaza, who re­placed Ghan­ian Khalif Al­has­san in the 67th minute, to grab a dra­mat­ic win­ner in the fifth minute of time added on.

Now in­to his third sea­son with the club, Plaza, last year’s joint-top scor­er in the league with 21 goals, has so far scored six goals in nine league match­es this sea­son to join fel­low T&T in­ter­na­tion­al Mar­vin Joseph, of Goku­lam Ker­ala, in fourth spot on the top goalscor­ers ta­ble, three be­hind Spain’s Fran Gon­za­lez. Abu Bakr has net­ted three times, Primus twice and Cyrus one as well in the league.

With the win, fifth-placed Churchill Broth­ers, who al­so fea­tured out-of-favour na­tion­al de­fend­er Robert Primus in their line-up, im­proved to 16 points, the same as TRAU, who hold the fourth spot on goal dif­fer­ence.

At the top of the ta­ble is Mo­hun Bagan, the club of na­tion­al de­fend­er Daneil Cyrus, with 29 points from 12 match­es. This af­ter Mo­hun Bagan, with­out Cyrus on the ros­ter, trashed NE­RO­CA, the club of T&T duo, goal­keep­er Mar­vin Phillip and de­fend­er Taryk Samp­son, 6-2 at the Kalyani Sta­di­um on Fri­day. Pun­jab are sec­ond on the ta­ble with 21 points from 13 match­es fol­lowed by Goku­lam Ker­ala with 17 from 11 match­es.

On Wednes­day (Feb­ru­ary 19), Churchill Broth­ers will be back in ac­tion ver­sus sixth-placed Re­al Kash­mir while NE­RO­CA bat­tles Goku­lam on Fri­day (Feb­ru­ary 21).
