Mohun Bagan rode on its Brazilian striker Jose Barreto's sparkling hat-trick and Chidi's double strikes to blank city rivals Chirag United 5-1 in their first outing of the second stage of the ONGC I-League here today.
This was the second hat-trick in this I-league, Chidi having achieved the feat during the team's 5-3 victory over arch-rivals East Bengal in the first stage of the league.
This was the first assignment for Bagan coach Satyajit Chatterjee, who passed the test with flying colours.
Bagan, who had lost 2-3 to Chirag in their first meeting in this league, displayed an all-round development and utilised the opportunities that came their way in the first half.
Chirag, who started the league campaign with a bright note and were at the second spot in the league table till this match, failed to live up to the expectations and their defence crumbled whenever there was any pressure in the first half which virtually decided the fate of the match.
With this victory, Bagan joined Chirag at the third spot with both having 23 points from 14 matches.
Dempo are now leading the table, followed by Mahindra United, who have gathered 25 points from 14 games so far.
