Shillong, March 15 : Rangdajied United continued their incredible run with a 3-1 victory over Mohun Bagan at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here Saturday, their third consecutive win as they put plenty of space between themselves and the relegation zone.
The hosts put three goals past the Mariners within 38 minutes before Odafa Okolie pulled one back for the visitors. Tomba Singh opened the goal fest in the 20th minute before Kim Song Yong and Ranti Martins added two more.
The first goal was a stunning long-range effort by Tomba from just inside the Bagan half.
Rangdajied made it 2-0 via a set-piece in the 35th minute. A free kick on the right saw Nandy fail to collect the ball and Kim tapped it in with a low shot.
That was the first of three quick goals as a defensive collapse by the Mariners saw Martins make it 3-0. Lyngdoh was with the ball just outside the box in the centre but did not take a strike. The ball was not cleared, however, and Kim and Martins went up the left unmarked. The Nigerian got there first and hammered the ball home.
