BFC run riot against RWF

A thoroughly professional second-half display from Bengaluru FC 'B' spurred them to an emphatic 6-0 thumping of Rail Wheel Factory (RWF) in the BDFA Super Division football league here on Sunday.

Known for their home fans who spur them on through rain and shine, the BFC reserve side had a comparitively smaller, yet vociferous, pocket of supporters cheering them on throughout the rout at the Bangalore Football Stadium.

Skipper Myron Mendes (77th and 90+3) led from the front with a brace, while Asheer Akthar (57th), Lalwamazama (58th), Parag Srivas (86th) and Azharuddin (92nd) made RWF pay for an unimpressive performance.

The scoreline could have hit double digits had BFC put away the plethora of chances they created.

BFC were on the front foot right from kick-off and went close on a couple of instances but had to go into the dressing room a frustrated bunch at half-time.

After the break they looked like a whole new side and began knocking on the doors right away. Their efforts were rewarded two-fold by the 58th minute as Akthar first poked home from Prashant Kalinga's corner and Lalwamazama then scored a screamer, from the edge of the box, a minute later.

Not satisfied with two goals, BFC kept pushing and hit the listless RWF side with a third goal in the 77th minute. It was Kalinga again who put in a well weighted pass and found Mendes, who headed past custodian Mrutyunjay.

Substitute Srivas missed an absolute sitter in the 85th minute, heading wide at the far post, but made amends immediately to net his side's fourth goal of the evening.

Jayavandan's handball 20 yards from the goal presented BFC with an opportunity to increase the lead and they obliged. Azharuddin stepped up and sent a left-footed curler past a hapless Mrutyunjay.

With a few seconds left on the clock, The Blues added their sixth as Mendes made a well-timed run into the box and put away Lalrinfela's pass to cap a perfect evening. BFC now top the standings with their second victory of the campaign.

In the 'A' Division Income Tax FC edged past BUFC FC 2-1.
