Sanjog Rai scored the first hat-trick of Qatar Airways Martyr’s Memorial “A” Division League 2019/20 on Saturday as Ruslan Three Star Club knocked 4 goals past Saraswoti Youth Club in a 4-0 victory.
Three Star failed to score at the first half of the game despite getting good numbers of chances on the ball. Wasiu Hazmat’s bad form prevented him to score from pretty good positions multiple times in the first half. Three Star took the lead at Dasrath Stadium in the opening stages of the second half with Lal Rammavra’s goal. Sanjog Rai got on the scoresheet at 57th minute with a wonderfully placed goal. Three minutes later, Rai thumped in a powerful left footed shot in the top left corner of the post to get another goal. Taking advantage of Pradeep Bhandari’s wrong judgement to Ashok Khawash’s long ball, Sanjog Rai got a treble at 71st minute. Sanjog Rai won Kelme Man of the Match trophy for his wonderful hat-trick and contribution in the game.
The shadow of relegation looms around Saraswoti Youth Club who are at bottom of the table with 4 points and three games remaining. Ruslan Three Star Club, however, stays at the fourth position with 17 points.
