A fine hat-trick by Samson Fernandes helped Ambelim Sports Club to hammer Arlem Youth Association 5-0 and enter the quarter-finals of Nagoa panchayat cup football tournament, organised by Pax of Nagoa and played at Nagoa panchayat grounds on Tuesday.
At half time, Ambelim were leading 3-0 with all the goals coming from the boots of Samson Fernandes who found the mark in the 10th, 15th and 22nd minute of play.
In the second session, Ashley Fernandes and David Simoes added two more goals in favour of Ambelim team who completely dominated the proceedings today. Arlem Youth keeper Theofalo Cardozo was helpless as Arlem defence crumbled under pressure.
ArlemYouth Association did come up with some occasional forays in the second session but when they reached the box, their forwards lacked the punch in their shots to beat the rival keeper. [NT]
