Axel Fernandes scored thrice, while Gerard Quadros and Zaem Dodhya scored two goals each. Marven Pereira, Keegan Pinto and skipper Josiah Noronha added a goal each to complete the tally.
“This is my first hat-trick in hockey. I used to play football earlier, but kept falling ill frequently due to dust allergy. Since, hockey is played on grass and astro truf there is less dust here, so I gave up football last year,” Axel said later.
Stanislaus coach Joshua Vessaokar however, felt the margin of victory should have been higher. “We converted most of our penalty corners but we should have scored at least four more goals considering this is our home ground,” he said.
