Federation Cup champions Dempo, Goa, rode on a brilliant hat-trick by Ranty Martins Soleye to beat defending champions East Bengal 3-2 in a National Football League match in Margao, Goa, on Thursdasy.

The Nigerian striker, who emerged the leading scorer in the league with eight goals after the three he scored today, opened the scoring for the home side before Baichung Bhutia restored parity for the Kolkatans before the break.

Martins then scored twice again as Dempo appeared coasting to a handsome victory before Juliano Martins pulled a goal back for East Bengal.
