Bashundhara Kings maintained their 100 per cent winning run in the Bangladesh Women’s Football League as they crushed FC Uttar Banga by 7-0 goals in the sixth round opening match at the Bir Shrestha Shaheed Sipahi Mohammad Mostafa Kamal Stadium in Kamlapur on Saturday.

With the resumption of the women’s league, the competitive football of the country returned to the field after nearly eight months, which was postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic on March 16.

After a goalless affair in the first-half, Kings’ defender Sheuli Azim broke the deadlock converting a penalty in the 54th minute.

Forward Krishna Rani Sarkar scored a brace, scoring in the 72nd and 84th minutes while midfielders Tohura Khatun [74th], Monika Chakma [78th], Munni Akter [81st] and captain Sabina Khatun [89th] were the other scorers.

With the day’s result, national women’s team captain Sabina-led Kings were leading the table with maximum 18 points from six games while Uttar Banga remained on third place with their collection of seven points from five games.

The third edition of the seven-team women’s league kicked-off on February 22, after almost a six-year gap.
