New Radiant Sports Club (NRSC)'s Ali 'Sentey' Fasir scores a hat-trick to send them through to the finals of the 2017 FA Cup.
NRSC beat Green Street Sports Club on Sunday night, with a brilliant 4-nil win, despite some of its strongest players being absent during the game; Ali 'Dhagandey' Ashfag and Ibrahim 'Oppo' Fazeel did not play the semi-final match.
NRSC was in good form throughout the game, taking the lead in the seventh minute with a goal by captain Ali 'Sentey' Fasir. The team had various other opportunities to score in the first half, but was blocked by Street's goalie Ahmed Fairooz.
The first half ended 1-0.
NRSC's Hamza 'Hampu' Mohamed scored its second goal in the 51st minute of the game. Captain Fasir scored the next two goals in the 72nd and 90th minute. He completed his hat-trick with a smooth free kick.
NRSC will face TC Sports Club in the final match of the FA Cup. TC secured its spot in the final after beating Maiya Sports Club 2-nil on Saturday.
NRSC, who took the Dhivehi Premier League 2017, has also secured its spot in the AFC Cup 2017, and with NRSC's win against Green Street, TC gets a spot in the AFC Cup playoffs.
