Kerala's Titanium drubbed Manipur Police 4-1 in the Second Division National Football League at the J R D Tata Sports Complex in Jamshedpur on Tuesday.

Titanium took over the control of the match early and K Renjith opened the account in the 10th minute (1-0).

Manipur Police restored parity through a self goal when Titanium defender K P Sabbir's header deflected into the net (1-1) in the 30th minute.

Titanium again took the lead (2-1) as Evin Rose's 18-yard powerful long-ranger beat the Manipur custodian one minute before the lemon break.

The Kerala team continued to dominate in the second-half and K Sameer scored the third goal for his team with a long range shot soon after the breather (3-1).

Rose scored his second goal and his team's fourth after he dribbled past the goalkeeper (4-1) in the 88th minute.
