In the 18th minute, it was nice cross by Mathias Coutinho from the right flank which found an unmarked Sagar, who did well to control the ball and lay it off to Deepak inside the box and he finished comfortably for Customs 1st goal.

A few minutes later Mathias Coutinho gobbled up a delicious cross by Praneel Mendon with a powerful header into the back of the net and made it 2-0 in favour of Customs.

Leading the game, Customs din’t hold back as they continued their goal scoring blitz. In the 27th minute, Vaibhav played in a wonderful aerial ball from the right flank when he collected a nice through ball from the half line, Sagar Bedekar anticipated the ball with perfect timing as he headed home the 3rd.

In the injury time of the first half, things got more worse for Kenkre FC as Referee Ravi Pandey awarded a penalty when Kenkre FC’s Aniket Admane tackled Deepak from behind, the spot kick was well converted by Jinto Jose.

Later in second half there were too many chances wasted by Mumbai Customs as they were on driving seat with 4-0 lead. They were more relaxed and kept the momentum going with a string of good passes and possession play, in the 57th minute Mumbai Customs completed their assignment through winger Mathias, with his solo run towards the goal, he took on a Kenkre defender as well as the goal keeper to slot home the ball for the celebrations.

Kenkre FC certainly look out of sorts this season as they have now have a mountain to climb with a goal difference of -8 from their 2 games. As for Mumbai Customs they are looking strong contenders this season with a well balanced squad and more importantly their in form strike force.
