I-League: Odafe ends Sporting's unbeaten run

Last updated on: April 07, 2013 21:08 IST

Odafe Okolie scored a hatrick as Mohun Bagan thrashed Sporting Clube de Goa 5-1 to end their unbeaten run, in the 23rd round of the I-League played at the Duler Stadium in Mapusa on Sunday.

After a barren first half, Bagan, who enjoyed numerical advantage in the second half after Sporting's striker Dawson Fernandes was sent off for his second bookable offence, scored through Odafe (52nd, 82nd, 90th) and Tolgay Ozbey (73rd, 80th) while Kalu Ogba pulled one back for Sporting in the 76th minute.

The win takes Bagan's tally to 21 points from 19 matches while Sporting remained on 30 from 23 games.
