How often do u get to hear *Bangladesh mauls* rather that *Bangladesh mauled*? :) The results gave me a flicker of hope until I realized that they must have fielded some over aged people.


Asian Youth F'ball Festival

Bangladesh maul Maldives

Sports Reporter

A hattrick from Zahid enabled Bangladesh to inflict a 6-0 drubbing on Maldives in an Asian Youth (under-14) Football Festival 2002 match at the Dasharath Stadium in Katmandu, Nepal yesterday.

The winners led the first half 1-0. This was Bangladesh's second win in four outings.

Zahid struck in the 20th, 57th and 68th minutes to become the second Bangladeshi to score a hattrick in the tournament. Striker Mithun was the first following his double hattrick in Bangladesh's 8-0 thrashing of Sri Lanka in their second match on December 22.

Mithun also scored one goal yesterday in the 51st minute to take his personal tally to ten goals.

Sujon netted the other two goals in the 48th and 72nd minutes.

Bangladesh suffered a 1-2 defeat against India in their opening match of the six-nation tournament and held hosts Nepal to a 2-2 draw last Tuesday.

They will face Bhutan in their last robin league match tomorrow.
