Naga’s Bisan adds Golden Boot to title win

On a Saturday that produced a staggering 22 goals across three matches, Bisan George saw off Privat Mbarga by a single goal to take the Golden Boot for top striker as NagaWorld sealed their Metfone C-League-winning season with a 6-2 win over National Police.

Cameroonian Mbarga’s brave bid for goal-scoring honours fell just short despite scoring five as Asia Europe United smashed Western Phnom Penh 7-3.

Taking to the Olympic Stadium pitch as champions, all Naga had to do was to continue in the form that got them to the summit for only the third time since the club was formed 17 years ago.

The new champs ended up with 56 points, pushing back defending title-holders Boeung Ket, who were to play on Sunday afternoon, into second place and first-season wonders Visakha into third.

Bisan was again central to Naga’s attacking schemes as he started the match with a two-goal advantage over AEU striker Mbarga in the race for the Golden Boot.

The Nigerian goal machine netted four times to boost his tally to 28 as Mbarga raced to a first half hat-trick before adding two more in the second for a five-goal haul to fall just one goal shy of Bisan with 27.

The other AEU goals came from George Kelechi and Chim Sambo in the final 10 minutes.

Bisan got off the mark for Naga a minute into first half time added on. he then banged in two goals in the space of three minutes and came back to ram home on the whistle what turned out to be the goal that won him strike honours.

Elsewhere, Ministry of National Defense went on a rampage against second from bottom Electicite du Cambodge. As if suffering a power outage, the electricity suppliers were overwhelmed 9-1 by Army on a day when the rain of goals proved harder to endure than the evening’s monsoon downpour.
