Three Star Club outlined their title credentials with a thumping 3-0 victory over Chyasal Youth Club in an entertaining match at Dasharath Stadium. Nishan Khadka, Raphael Bidias Rim and Ananta Tamang scored for Three Star in the win. Khadka opened the scoring with a sumptuous free-kick in the 22nd minute. Chyasal were awarded a penalty after Ananta Tamang brought down Bikash Meraglia but the resulting penalty kick by Meraglia was saved by Three Star's Guillaume Njanga. Raphael then doubled the lead just before half time to give a 2-0 lead to Three Star. Ananta Tamang headed the third in the 58th minute. Three Star's coach Urjan Shrestha said it was vital for them to win the first match of the league and they did exactly they wanted. "We came under pressure at the start but goals helped us. The penalty save also helped build our confidence which hopefully we could carry on to the next matches," said Shrestha. Chyasal Youth Club's Bal Gopal Sahukhala raised questions to some of the referee decisions which let them down. "It is always difficult in the first match but we played well. We were better team in the first half," he said. Brigade Boys Club will play against Nepal APF Club in the first match on Sunday while Jawalakhel Youth Club will face Manang Marsyangdi Club in the second match of the day.
