Mapusa: Vasco Sports Club registered a thumping 5-0 win over Bardez Football Club in the Goa Professional League match played at Duler Stadium here on Wednesday.

Vasco were leading 1-0 at the end of first half through Beneston Barretto, who on getting hold of a pass from Orji, cleverly finished in the 20th minute.
Before the goal, U-20 Darren Rebello had two chances in quick succession in the first five minutes to put Vasco ahead, first shooting wide from a long ball sent into the box by Nigerian midfielder Penn Orji’ and then making a mess of an open sitter.
Vasco kept probing and this time it was Anil Gaonkar whose first touch was a bit heavy from a pass by Moises D`Sa and another chance went abegging. Minutes later U-20 forward Aman Govekar fluffed his lines at the crucial point of finding the nets.
Bardez were completely outclassed by their opponents and to make it worse their strikers had a complete off-day as they just could not find the back of the net.
Minutes before half time, Anil had two chances to consolidate the lead. First his rasping shot missed the target by a whisker while in the added time Bardez keeper Elesh Shirvoikar denied him in one-on-one situation after being teed up by Moises.
On resumption of play, Bardez nearly cancelled out the deficit but Stephen Martin’s fierce 30-yard scorcher just went past the crossbar.
Mosies D`Sa made it 2-0 for Vasco with a low shot in the 60th minute after a neat build up between medio Rugved Yeole and Beneston Barretto.
Nigerian Penn Orji who was brilliant for Vasco scored the third goal in the 71st minute after outsmarting Bardez defence with amazing footwork to slam the ball into the net, this time Rugved Yeole provided the pass, 3-0
With the game already wrapped up, Vasco showed no mercy and fired in two more goals in the 77th and 78th minutes through Anil Gaonkar and Beneston Barretto to complete a miserable evening for the Bardez lads. [H]
