Mohun Bagan produced an imperious performance against a beleaguered Port Trust to retain top of the Kolkata Premier League on Sunday, Branco heading up a thumping 6-0 victory with his first hat-trick for the Green and Maroon.
Astonishingly, Bagan’s goals came in both-half blitz – 3 each in each half. Snehashish (2) and Kulothungan also got in on the act in a game the Green and Maroon brigade dominated from start to finish. Remarkably, it could have been even more convincing. Clear-cut opportunities ran comfortably into double figures, and so too could the scoreline.
In the 8th minute the flood gate was opened as Branco scored from a Snehashish free kick.
Branco had to wait for 4 more minutes to score his second and by the 15th minute he got his hattrick.
Then in the second half three more goals were scored. First it was Kulothungan – who scored in the 66th minute. In 79th minute Snehashish scored his first from a solo run. The 82nd minute goal was a repeat of his first one.
Snehashish was awarded Man of the Match.
