Gokulam Kerala FC rode on Marcus Joseph’s hat-trick to record an emphatic 4-1 win over TRAU FC to finish its Group D engagements with nine points in the Durand Cup football tournament at the Howrah Stadium on Sunday.
Following a barren first half, GKFC, which had already qualified for the semifinals, scored all its goals in an action-packed second period. Andre Ettienne was the other scorer for the Kerala team. M. Roger scored the consolation goal for TRAU.
In other inconsequential affairs, Chennaiyin FC held Indian Air Force to a goalless draw, while Chennai City FC beat Army Green 2-1 to post its first victory.
