Bagan went into the lemon break with a score line reading 4-0! With the commencement of the 2nd half, the Port coach substituted his Keeper to relieve him of his nightmare but it was far from over for Port!
Though initial pressure was applied by Port, Bagan stepped on the gas again and on the 61st minute Dharamjit making a penetrative run into the left post of the Port goal took a weak and poor shot which an equally poor catch by the Port goalie and the ball found itself at the back of the net. Bagan 5-0 up!
Barely a minute had passed when from a ball from James, Venkatesh who was runing towards the goal unleashed a piledriver, just too hot to handle for the Port custodian! Bagan 6-0!
Soon Barreto was replaced by Ishfaq and the game seemed to have slackened as Bagan though pressing was not as determined as they could have been. Just when it seemed the score could remain 6-0, James Singh lobbed in a ball from the right flank and the Port defender Prashanta in his attempt to clear unfortunately found the back of his own net. 75' minute, Bagan 7-0!
Not much after this though the score line could easily have reached double figure as Lalam, Barreto, James, Ishfaq missed chances which, if converted would have been the most numbers of goal in a CFL match. However this 7-0 victory is this season's biggest win! Yesterday East Bengal had put in 6 goals against 2 in their tie against Mohd. Sp. Bagan today replaced that 4 goal margin by a 7 goal one!
Bagan are now placed 2nd in the Leage table with 7 points from 3 matches with an impressive GD of +8. Peerles are at the 3rd position with 6 points from their 2 matches, with East bengal leading the table with 9 points from 3 matches!
