Odfafa Okolie struck five goals to power Mohun Bagan to a 5-1 win over United Sikkim in their group B quarterfinal league of the 117th IFA Shield in Kalyani on Friday.
The Nigerian 'goal machine' opened the scoring in the 29th minute to give a 1-0 lead at halftime.
It was a goal glut after the break as Odafa toyed with the United Sikkim attack, firing in four in 66th, 85th, 89th and 90+1st minutes.
The Bhaichung Bhutia-owned outfit pulled one back when their Spanish recruit Bablo Aracil scored one in the 71st minute.
This was Mohun Bagan's second successive win in the group league after their 3-0 blanking of Pune FC as they virtually sealed a semis berth, leading the table with six points.
