Bagan beat Salgaocar 3-0

Kolkata:

Three time champions Mohun Bagan blanked Salgaocar Sports Club 3-0 in a floodlit 10th National Football League exchange at the Salt Lake stadium in Kolkata on Thursday. Sushil Kumar Singh put Bagan ahead in the 39th minute, before Ibrahim and Eduardo Coelho struck insurance goals late in the second session to boost the lola outfit's tally to 14 from ten outings. Dominating the game from the outset, Bagan broke the deadlock when Ibrahim Awuda's through was flicked into the box by Dharamjit Singh and Sushil found the target with a rasping volley. The scoreline became 2-0 in the 78th minute when Ibrahim capped a solo with a firm volley that deflected into the net off a Salgaocar defender. Seven minutes later, a floating corner from Agbesi saw Eduardo showing fine opportunism to beat his marker in the air and nod home, much to the merriment among the Bagan fans. After 10 ties, Salgaocar remained on seven points. Nine minutes into the first session, the stadium plunged into darkness following a power failure. The match was halted for 20 minutes. Stadium sources later attributed the disruption to excess voltage that caused the supply to trip. (PTI)
