Dempo Sports Club continued their winning run in the AIFF Junior League as they recorded a massive 12-0 win over Churchill Brothers FC, at Dempo SC Academy ground, Ella-Old Goa on Wednesday.
With their seventh win in as many matches, Dempo SC juniors have now collected 21 points and thus qualified for the next stage of the tournament.
The young Golden Eagles proved ruthless to their hapless rivals as they scored as many as 10 goals in the first half itself. Arnold Oliveira netted four, Topan Minz scored three and captain Shreyash Naik contributed with two goals before young Asmon Viegas managed to score through a ricochet that creped in the near post.
With the young Dempo SC side using all their allocated substitutes in the second half, the game took some time to pick up. But as the proceedings reached the hour mark, captain Shreyash Naik struck to complete his hat-trick.
If the first half was all about Rajan Kumar’s vision and passing ability, the second session was all about young Rabi Punn’s trickery. The young lad’s quick feet were proving too much to deal with for the Red Machines down the right flank as he kept putting in cross after cross and posing endless questions to the Churchill defence.
With just 15 minutes from time, the young Golden Eagles managed to get their last goal of the evening, with Shreyash Naik finding himself on the score sheet again.
The captain somehow managed to wriggle past 3 challenges before calmly slotting it past the helpless keeper to take the Dempo tally to twelve for the evening.
