Vashi, Mar 25 (IBNS) All India Football Federation's (AIFF's) Navi Mumbai Regional Academy breezed past Mumbai Super Division outfit Income Tax Sports Club 5-0 in a practice match at the Father Agnel Sports Complex in Vashi.
The deadlock was broken barely seconds into the game when winger Rakesh Oram capitalised on a defensive lapse and crossed into the box for an ice-cool striker Stany Braganca to slot home.
The Academy boys made it 2-0 in the 32th minute. Midfielder Milan Basumatary made amends for a missed penalty a minute earlier with a delightful cross to the far post which was met by a thunderous half-volley by Oram.
The winger doubled his tally three minutes later when he followed Robinson Singh's through ball, beat the off-side trap and placed it past the rival goalkeeper to make it 3-0.
Bidyananda Singh's tap-in at the stroke of half-time ensured that the boys went into the break with a comfortable 4-0 lead.
The rout was completed in the 62nd minute by midfielder Hayden Fernandes. His powerful shot from around 40 yards left the keeper with no chance.
