Shrivas scores hat-trick as Bengaluru FC

BANGALORE: Parag Shrivas scored a hat-trick as Bengaluru FC ‘B’ thrashed Chennaiyin FC Reserves 6-1 win in a 2nd Division League match here on Saturday.

Lalengzama Vangchhia (49’), Naorem Roshan Singh (55’) and Lalrintluanga Chawnglut (57’) too got on the scoresheet as the Blues (17 points) romped to their fifth win of the campaign, reclaiming top spot in the Group C standings.  

Coach Naushad Moosa made four changes going into the final home game of the campaign as Nishu Kumar, Namgyal Bhutia, Lalengzama and Parag all started against the Chennaiyin side.

It was the Blue Colts, who started on a positive note and it took just under four minutes to break the deadlock.

Nishu floated in a good ball from the right flank to Lalengzama, who controlled down the middle and lobbed a pass towards Parag.

The striker timed his run well to bring down the ball on the right in the box and smash it home at the far post with a low effort for his second goal of the campaign.

Bengaluru continued the forward push throughout the first half and it was only in the 44th minute that they finally got the second. Parag outjumped his marker to head home Namyal Bhutia’s cross in from the left for his second of the afternoon to make it 2-0 at half time.
