Bagan reach on 7 points with a 7 goal booster!

Bagan started off yet another match with 4-4-2 formation against Port. Mohun Bagan dominated in the first quarter but could not open the goal mouth.
However on the 31st minute, from a Lalkamal pass, Barreto receiving it with his back towards the Port goal and make a quick half turn, guarding his marker, let fly with a shot to the bottom left corner of the goal keeper netting the 1st of the day. Bagan pressed on as Port made some valid counter attacks but failed to convert.
On the 37th minute, Lalkamal trapping a ball on the left side of the goal, about 30 yards away and dodging two defenders took a right-footer which swarved towards the top left corner of the goalie, MB go up 2-0.
Bagan kept on the pressure as Habibur and Rauf Khan overlapped beautifully and it seemed as if the Bagan team was working like a well oiled machine as the Midfield kept the ball, snacthed it when necessary, fed the two flanks as Rauf and Habibur kept on puting in centres into the Port penalty box.
41st minute of the game and Venky put in a centre which failed to meet anyone and Dharamjit chased it to the side line and sent in another cross which was inch perfect and Barreto rose above two Port defenders to net the second of the match and the 3rd of his season.
Minutes before the lemon break, Odafe made a forward pass which met a poor clearance from a port defender only to fall dangerously inbetween Lalam and the Port keeper as both of them rushed. However the Port keeper might have done better if he had aimed for the ball instead of Lalam, as he, withstanding the keeper's push, found a free ball and turning 0n his heals scored the 4th for Bagan!

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!
