SRINAGAR: Bidyshagar Singh hatrick led TRAU to a thumping 3-1 win over Real Kashmir FC at the Kalyani Municipal Stadium in Kalyani on Wednesday.
It was the 8th minute when TRAU broke through the Real Kashmir FC defence but the Snow Leopards with the help of Danish Farooq pulled a goal back in the 24th minute.
The first real chance for Real Kashmir FC came in the 18th minute when Mason Robertson’s shot was deflected for a corner kick after the Snow Leopards launched a counter-attack that almost reaped dividends for them.
The attacking duo of Bidyashagar Singh and Komron Tursunov continued to trouble the Real Kashmir defence. And in the 37th minute, they combined to hand TRAU the lead once again. Bidyshagar Singh was played on goal by a Komron Tursunov pass and the nimble-footed forward slyly slotted the ball past an onrushing Anuj Kumar to make it 2-1.
In the 54th minute, Real Kashmir tried to get the ball progressing through Lalrindika Ralte who tried to set in motion to get the equalizer but Ralte’s release into the box was stopped by TRAU’s goalkeeper.
In 85th Bidyashagar Singh scored another goal for TRAU.
