India, Nepal in women's football final

Bangladesh's hopes of making it to the final in women's football of the 11th South Asian Games evaporated when they were handed a 7-0 drubbing by favourites India in their last group match at the Bangabandhu National Stadium yesterday.
Laishram Naobi Chanu scored a hattrick for India.
Bangladesh trailed the first half 2-0. They made a couple attacks in the first half but the strikers failed to convert those chances. The second half was completely dominated by India who put five more in the back of the net to complete a rout of the hosts.
This defeat, coupled with the 1-0 loss in their first match against Nepal, meant the hosts ended the competition behind India and Nepal. Nepal earlier handed Pakistan a same 7-0 reverse in the match at the same venue to confirm their final berth.
Nepal's Anu Lama scored a hattrick while skipper Jamuna Gurung and Parmila Rai struck braces to complete the drubbing of the Pakistani girls. The winners led the first half 4-0.
India finished the group stage with four wins out of four followed by Nepal who won three of their four matches.
Bangladesh take on Sri Lanka for the third place today at the Bangabandhu National Stadium. India will face Nepal in the final on Monday also at the Big Bowl.
