A first half brace from Lalrinzuala Lalbiaknia and goals from Vijay Thangavelu and Rahul Rajan gave Bengaluru FC’s U16 Academy side a winning start to their Rest of India Zone-1 U16 Y-League campaign at the Duler Stadium, in Goa, on Saturday.
The Blue Colts attacked from the start with Nonganba Singh and Rahul operating down the flanks. An early cross from Singh was too high for Lalrinzuala but a deft touch and cross from Rahul allowed the 16-year-old striker to drive home the opener.
Rahul made it two assists on the night after he dribbled past three defenders before cutting it across for Vijay to tap home from close in the 9th minute.
Salgaocar managed to pull one back through Levi Pereira moments later but a decisive through ball from Vijay allowed Lalrinzuala to attack and finish past the SAL keeper into the bottom corner to grab his second and make it 3-1 at the break.
A second half finish from Rahul put matters to bed as BFC U16s claimed an opening day victory. John Kila’s Blue Colts next face Sporting Clube de Goa at the same venue on Monday.
