Calcutta Football League: Mohammedan Sporting Club 6 - 0 Railway FC
Four goals from Aser Pierrick Dipanda Dicka (19th minute, 35th, 47th and 90+2nd) along with goals from Manandeep Singh (26th) and Prohlad Roy (60th) gave Mohammedan SC a comfortable win over Railway FC
Mohammedan SC coach Biswajit Bhattacharya made five changes to the side from the previous match as Harjinder Singh filled the gap for a suspended Rana Gharami while Kamran Farooque, Prohlad Roy, Satyam Sharma and
Manandeep came at the expenses of Amit Chakraborty, Dipendu Dowary, Tirthankar Sarkar and Jiten Mumru respectively.
Mohammedan SC had the better performance right from the start, and after some half chances in the opening exchanges, they took the lead in the 19th minute. Dipanda capitalized on a poor clearance and smashed home a powerful right footer past the helpless Railway FC custodian.
The Black Panthers doubled their lead seven minutes later when Diapnda sent Manandeep clear in the rival box. The former Kerala Blasters striker kept his calm and finished over an advanced keeper to make it 2-0.
Diapnda then got on the score-sheet again striking in the final quarter. The Cameroonian tapped home from close in the 35th minute after getting a pass from Shekh Faiaz.
Thereafter, Mohammedan SC continued to push up and create chances but but poor finishing in the final third meant the first half ended 3-0.
It took just two minutes for the Black Panthers to increase their lead after restart. Ankit Mukherjee curled in a great cross which wasnt properly cleared and fell for Diapnda inside the box. The striker controlled the ball and smashed home the half volley for Mohammedan SCs fourth.
The scoring spree did not end there as Prohlad increased Mohammedan SCs lead further after striking home from close range in the 60th minute.
Mohammedan SC, thereafter, continued to dominate the proceedings but had to wait till injury time to get their sixth when Dipanda head home to score his 10th goal of the competition.
The win took Mohammedan SCs tally to 13 points from 7 games and they will face East Bengal next on Saturday at Barasat.
