Kolkata:

Scripting one of their most authoritative wins in international outings, Mohun Bagan crushed Sri Lanka's Saunders Sports Club 5-1 to sail into the second round of the AFC Champions league today. The city giants were well served by a razor-sharp attack manned by the nimble footed Baichung Bhutia and Jose Barreto in the opening round of the second leg match at Salt Lake stadium. Bhutia struck a brace, while Jose Barreto, George Ekeh and Jaynata Sen chipped in with one apiece as the Lankans seemed in deep waters throughout the 90-minute exchange. The visitors' only goal was scored by Sanjaya Kumara. The local outfit, which won the first leg tie in Colombo 2-0, took control from the outset and raced to a 4-1 lead at the breather. They went into the lead quarter of an hour into the match when Bhutia displayed fine receiving qualities inside the opponent box and netted with a sharp left foot grounder. (PTI)
