In-form Bagan drub Salgaocar

Sony Norde and Katsumi Yusa struck one each as Mohun Bagan downed Salgaocar 3-1 in an action-packed second-half to maintain their stronghold atop the table in the I-League football tournament at Vidyasagar Krirangan on Friday.

The second-half saw all the four goals as Denson Devadas gave Mohun Bagan the lead (51st) but within a minute the Goans brought the game on an even keel after Augustin Fernandes smashed in from close range from a freekick.

The city heavyweights, however, grabbed the lead in the 70th minute when Katsumi Yusa from a Norde corner as the Japanese snatched a loose ball from the rebound off Salgaocar goalkeeper Subrata Paul. Norde then gave Mohun Bagan a commanding lead in the 85th minute when the Haitian recruit cut in from the left leaving two defenders for dead and fired in from just outside the box.

The win enabled Mohun Bagan (24 pts) establish a four-point lead over defending champions Bengaluru FC with one match in hand.
