Milan Limbu scored a hat-trick as Divine Boys Union Club (BUC) defeated Nayabasti Yuva Club (NYC) 3-0 in the Martyr's Memorial 'B' Division League on Sunday.

In the second match of the day, Khumaltar Youth Club (KYC) won 1-0 against Jhamsikhel Youth Club (JYC).

Limbu opened the scoring in the 21st minute utilizing a cross from Arun Limbu. He added his second in the additional minutes of first half and completed his hat-trick in the 57th minute. The closest NYC came to scoring was in the 77th minute when Suman Rai struck the bar with a fierce right-footed shot.

BUC's assistant coach Ranjit Singh said they played better than last game. "We both clubs are of same standard but today we played well and converted our chances," said Singh.

NYU's coach Chet Narayan Shrestha said they could not maintain ball possession in today's game. "Our midfield was weak. Injury to our key defenders also hampered our performance," said Shrestha.

In the second match, Mahesh Rai scored the solitary goal in the third minute as KYC edged JYC to move level on points with leaders Satdobato Youth Club (SYC). League leaders SYC have a better head-to-head result against KYC and also have played a game less than SYC.  

KYC's assistant coach Binod Dangol said they could not perform as expected. "I think my players were tired after our previous high tempo game against Satdobato. We only played as plan for 10 minutes and scored during that time," said Dangol.

JYC's coach Purushottam Dangol said it was a 50-50 game which could have gone both ways. "We missed our chances and they took theirs. We were superior and played better but that goal was the difference," said Dangol.
