Calcutta: Dudu Omagbemi scored four goals including a hat-trick as East Bengal thrashed Chennai City 7-1 in the I-League here on Saturday. 

The veteran striker scored in the 32nd, 49th, 56th and 61st minutes to kill the contest while Mahmoud Al Amna (20′) and Gabriel Fernandes (84′) were the other scorers. For Chennai City, Dharmaraj Ravanan’s own-goal in the 23rd was compensated by a consolation from Mashoor Shereef Thangalakath in the 59th.

In another match in Vasco, Goa, hosts Churchill Brothers fought back to hold Gokulam FC 1-1 at the Tilak Maidan.

Henry Kisekka (72′) had put Gokulam into the lead before an injury-time strike from Frincis Okechukwu helped the hosts salvage a point.

Churchill, who introduced new foreigners Jeancy Zunapio Siyo and Okechukwu,  are placed eighth on 17 points while Chennai dropped to ninth.
