Walson quadruple stuns Muktis

April 25, 2015

A sublime quadruple from Haitian forward Augustine Walson gave Brothers Union a dazzling 5-2 win over Muktijoddha Sangsad Krira Chakra in the Bangladesh Premier League at the Bangabandhu National Stadium on Friday. While in the second match of the day, two dying moment goals from Zahid Hossain and Zahid Hasan Ameli gave Sheikh Russell Krira Chakra a crucial 2-0 victory over Abahani Limited at the same venue.
Walson, a former Haitian international, recorded the first hat-trick of the league to shock an in-form Muktijoddha. This was Muktijoddha’s first defeat after four consecutive wins.
Shariful Islam scores the other goal for the victors while Muktihoddha’s Senegalese forward Kamara Sarba and skipper Enamul Haque scored one goal apiece.
Muktijoddha went ahead just four minutes into the clock when their Senegalese forward Kamara Sarba’s right footed attempt found the back of the net after receiving a long ball from Maruf Ahmed.
The Gopibagh outfits leveled the margin in the 18th minute when Anisur Alam Sweet brought Shariful Islam down inside the box and Welson converted the spot-kick.
The Haitian took Brothers ahead minutes before the interval. Receiving a long ball from Kester Akon, the Haitian raced into the box and rounded off two defenders before placing the ball into the near post.
Muktijoddha, however, returned to the match in the 56th minute when Enamul Haque scored his fifth goal of the league by converting a spot kick after Rashedul Alam blocked a ball with his hand inside the box.
The Oranges retained the lead just two minutes later with a solo effort from Shariful Islam, who raced into the box after receiving a squire pass from Imtiaz Sultan Jitu before sending the ball into the left corner of the net.
Walson completed his hat-trick in the 87th minute off a penalty after Akteruzaaman Liton fouled Brothers midfielder Shafiqul in the box.
Walson made it 5-2 to seal the victory during the added time and moved to the top spot of the scorers chart with six goals as the Haitian marksman brilliantly finished a square pass from Kester.
With the win, Brothers moved into the fourth position of the points table with 10 points from five matches while Muktijoddha remained second with 12 points from the same number of games.
Meanwhile Sheikh Russell’s national winger Zahid stunned Abahani with a powerful strike in the 88th minute before Ameli sealed the victory with a stoppage time strike after Paul Emile provided him a nice pass.
After three successive wins, Russell moved to the fifth position of the points table with nine points from four matches while Abahani remained third with 10 points from five matches.
