Ghanaian forward Elshaddai Acheampong struck twice as defending champions Gokulam Kerala FC kept their winning march to down Indian Arrows 2-1 in the Indian Women's League on Monday.
The developmental side of AIFF had the early advantage and led for more than an half-hour after scoring through Naorem Priyangka Devi (6').
But the defending champions bounced back strongly with leading goal-scorer of the season Elshaddai who notched a quick brace, scoring on either side of the break (36', 47') to script their turnaround at the Capital Ground.
It took her tally to 13 goals, two ahead of teammate Manisha Kalyan. In another fixture, Sirvodem Sports Club secured an identical 2-1 win over SSB Women Football Club in a tight contest at the Seventh Battalion ground.
Sirvodem led 1-0 at half-time through Sanfida Nongrum's 32nd minute strike. SSB bounced back to equalise after the break through Sandhya Kachhap (60').
In the space of two minutes, Sirvodem restored their lead through Arpita Pednekar (62') as they held on to it to seal three points.
