Gurgaon: Riding on Gurpreet`s hat-trick
Punjab thrashed Uttrakhand 6-0 in a Group B encounter of 32nd
sub-junior National Football Championship for Mir Iqbal
Hussain Trophy played at Ghari Harsaru here today.
Punjab drew first blood when Jitender found the back of
the net in the 10th minute. Punjab then escalated their
dominance over the hapless Uttrakhand as Gurpreet scored the
second goal in the 16th minute.
Leading 2-0 at the half time, Punjab added four goals to
their tally in second half with the third goal coming from
Jitender in the 52nd minute.
In the 65th minute, Gurpreet scored his second before
completing his hat-trick in the 67th minute. Jagroop also
joined the party and found the net in the 84th minute.
Meanwhile, in an inconsequential encounter Himachal
Pradesh registered a 2-0 victory over Jammu and Kashmir.
After a drab first half, Vishal Kumar (52th min) and
Karan Mishra (71st min) scored one goal each to give Himachal
Pradesh their first victory of the championship.
Uttrakhand will take on Uttar Pradesh in the first
semifinal, while Punjab will face Delhi in the second
semi-final on Saturday.
