Mohun Bagan thrash S China 4-0 in AFC Cup

Mohun Bagan notched up their second consecutive victory with a 4-0 thrashing of a 10-man South China of Hong Kong in an away match of the AFC Cup football tournament here on Wednesday.

The I-League champions, who had drubbed Maldives side Maziya Sports and Recreation 5-2 in their home match in Guwahati last month, scored through Lenny Rodrigues (15th minute), Sony Norde (39th), Cornell Glen (45th) and Jeje Lalpekhlua (82nd) in a Group G match at Mongkok Stadium here.

After their second consecutive at the continental second tier club competition, Mohun Bagan remained on top with six points from two matches, two points clear of Yangon United of Myanmar, who played out a 1-1 draw with Maziya Sports and Recreation in Male, Maldives.

Mohun Bagan next play Yangon United of Myanmar on March 16 in Guwahati.

With their head coach Sanjoy Sen at the dug out -- though he was handed a domestic eight-match ban -- the Kolkata side outplayed their opponents at their own den by pumping in three goals in the first half.

Down to 10 men from the 16th minute onwards, South China never recovered and suffered their second consecutive loss.
