9 goals feast ends in Bagan's favour!

Bagan met Salgaocar sports club Goa today and the match witnessed an avalanche of goals. 4 goals were scored by Salgaocar while the remaining 5 were put in by Bagan.
The match had barely started off when Barreto after a nice movement involving Bobo, Bhaichung and Baretto himself, took a crack at goal but Bhaichung placed the rebound of the goalie.
Bagan kept up the pressure, but soon enough Salgaocar took control and from a long ball sent in for Ambani, Sangram misjudging the flight left his goal and Ambani found a free net to make the score 1-1.
Soon enough, from another such attacks, Felix was brought down by Rauf and was booked resulting a penalty against Bagan. Felix converted and score line was 1-2 in Salgaocar's favour.
Lalkamal who had been fielded today from the beginning was busy mispassing the ball around rather than playing serious football. The coach substituted him for Lalampuia.
The substitution turned to be a good one, when Lalam of his first touch, sent in the ball from the left straight across the goal and an advancing Barreto placed it in. score now 2-2.
Within minutes, again, Barreto played a long ball toLalam in the left and a cross from the young gun was met meticulously by Barreto's head sending in the 3rd goal for Bagan.
Just when the half was about to end, Lalampuia played a wall with Bhaichung and let the chance begging as he hit the goalie square on and sending the ball off for a corner kick. However the 4th goal came in from that same corner as Dharamjit sent it in and Bobo directing it towards the second post. Bagan go into the half, 4-2.
Within minutes of the 2nd half, Felix put one in the Bagan net from a free kick from the left. Sangram was in faulty position and again misjudged the flight. Score now 4-3.
Tough competition ensued and again Salgaocar equalised through Felix who completed his hat trick as he was left unmarked in the box meeting a cross sent in, he side volleyed it. A Gaping defense, frequent defensive errors and a thoroughly incompetent keeper to add on to that. Bagan surely conceding more that they are scoring.
The match continued and Venkatesh was replaced by James. Again the replacement paying off for Periera as from a 30 yard long free kick, James scored a world class goal to give Bagan the lead and the winning goal.
Bagan now have 8 points from 7 matches.
Bagan will now meet there arch rivals East Bengal in the next match.
Team: Sangram, Habibur, Odafe, Manju, Rauf, Venkatesh(James), Bobo(Siddiqui), Lalkamal(Lalampuia), Dharamjit, Baichung, Barreto
