Haitian forward Augustine Walson set the track ablaze scoring four goals against a high-flying Muktijoddha as Brothers Union continued their fairytale run with a comprehensive 5-2 win in the Manyavar Bangladesh Premier League at Bangabandhu National Stadium yesterday.

Brothers, who defeated Mohammedan 1-0 in their previous match, bamboozled their opponents with quick counter-attacks, led by Walson, who slammed the first hat-trick of the league. He now leads the goalscorers’ list with six strikes.

However, it was Muktijoddha who took the lead in the very fourth minute when Senegalese forward Camara Sarba took control of a long ball, which fell behind the defence line, and coolly placed it into the far-post netting.

Brothers equalised in the 18th minute when Muktis defender Anisul Alam Sweet fouled Brothers midfielder Shariful in the box and Walson converted the penalty.

Walson scored his second a minute before the first half whistle as he dribbled past two defenders and shot a grounder past Mukti goalkeeper Titumur.

Enamul pulled Muktis back into the game again in the 57th minute courtesy a penalty.

In the very next minute, Shariful notched the third for Brothers, carrying a long ball forward from Imtiaz Sultan Jitu.

Shariful ran through the defence and placed the ball into the far-post netting from the right corner of the box.

Walson completed his treble in the 87th minute, off a penalty, following an Aktaruzzaman Liton foul on Brothers midfielder Shafiqul in the box.

The rout was completed in stoppage time when Kester Akon paved the way for Walson with a neat square pass.

Fourth-placed Brothers now have 10 points from five matches while Muktis, two places ahead in second, have two more points from the same number of matches.

Meanwhile in the day’s other match, Sheikh Russel beat Abahani 2-0 at the same venue, courtesy late strikes from winger Zahid Hossain in the 84th minute and national forward Jahid Hasan Ameli in time added on.

Sheikh Russel leapfrogged Mohammedan into fifth position with nine points from four matches while the traditional Sky Blues remained at third with 10 points from five matches.
