Bedashwor Singh scored the winning goal in the 61st minute, slamming a low drive from a throw-in by Aimol Reamsochung, past the ICF custodian.
The first half ended goalless with both sides failing to create any clear-cut chances. The second half too progressed in a similar manner till Bedashwor Singh broke the deadlock.
Despite ICF's best attempts to find the equaliser, the CFC 'B' defence held firm to secure a win and progress to the next round, where it will meet Viva Chennai FC.
Chennaiyin FC announced the launch of its 'B' team yesterday, which will participate in I-League Second Division and other national tournaments.
The tournament was inaugurated by Chennaiyin FC co-owner Vita Dani in the presence of actor and CFC co-owner Abhishek Bachchan. Thiruvallur District Football Association president P N Ravikumar was also present.
