Pune FC rout Dempo

Pune FC dealt a heavy blow to Dempo Sports Club’s ambitions as the visitors carved a stunning 5-1 victory in a 11th round I-League encounter at the Nehru Stadium, Fatorda, on Saturday.

James Moga scored a brace while Izumi Arata, Jeje Lalpekhlua and Douhou Pierre stunned everyone with strikes towards the closing stages of the match. Joaquim Abranches’ stunning free-kick was the sole bright spot for Dempo on an otherwise dismal evening that left their fans a despondent lot by the time the final whistle was blown.

The win takes Pune FC's tally to 20 points from 10 games while Dempo's chance to extend the lead at the top suffered as they remained on 25 points from 11 matches.
Meanwhile, N D Opara scored the winner as Mumbai FC edged Sikkim United FC 1-0 in another tie to move up the table.
