A hat-trick from Kelzang Jigme and a goal from Kaka Tshering earned Ugyen Academy FC the 3 crucial points humbling Tensung FC 4:0 today at Ugyen Academy Ground.
The visitors started on the front foot as they kept the host under pressure since the starting whistle but the game turned way around as Ugyen Academy FC went ahead at 29 minutes through Kelzang Jigme. In the 36th minute, Kaka Tshering doubled the lead when he had the empty post to himself to hit the net. The game evermore inclining towards the home team, they were awarded PK for Tensung Captain Sonam Phuntsho’s foul on UA striker Chuma Dorji. Kelzang Jigme completed his brace making the best of the glorious chance.
Early in the second half, at 53 minutes UAFC striker Chuma Dorji Tamang was sent off for double yellow leaving his team stranded with a man down. This sure led to the army team’s intense pressure on the hosts but UA yet again got awarded PK for a foul in D-area at 59 minutes making Kelzang Jigme complete his treble comfortably.
“Not being adapted to the natural ground was a reason and i had 2 of my main players suspended was another one which kept us from giving our best today” said gaffer of Tensung FC, Namgay Tshering.
For the next match, we will have Paro FC vs Gelephu FC at Woochu Sports Arena tomorrow.
