MANILA--Pasargad sank Nomads, 4-0, in their UFL Cup match at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium on Sunday night.

A first half brace by Mo Camara and strikes from Ugochukwu Ebere and John De Castro gave Pasargad its first three points of the tournament as the club put the country's oldest sports team into further oblivion with their fourth straight setback in a battle of the also-ran squads in group B.

Just four minutes into the match, Camara gave Pasargad a flying start as he scored the opening goal of the match.

The Guinean pounced on a wasted corner by Nomads to get ahead on the break, beating Joshua Cruz to slot it home with his right boot.

Following numerous attacks, Camara scored again, doubling Pasargad's edge 22 minutes later after beating the entire Nomads backline and curls his right-footed shot into the net.

In the 74th minute, Ugochukwu Ebere made it 3-0 PSG, with the Nigerian scoring from way inside the box.

Four minutes later, John De Castro gave Pasargad the icing on the cake as he received Ebere's well placed pass and flicks it into the empty net.
