Armenia round-up: Pyunik extend advantage

FC Pyunik opened up a four-point gap at the summit of the Armenian
Premier League following a dramatic 1-0 victory over title challengers
FC Shirak.

Dramatic winner

Pyunik had the chance to take the lead during the opening exchages but
Eduard Partsikyan missed from the penalty spot. However, the leaders
claimed maximum points when Cameroonian substitute Issa Traore hit
the target four minutes into added time.

Players on trial

Pyunik fielded three Argentinian trialists during the match. The
club intend to strengthen their squad ahead of their UEFA Champions
League first qualifying round tie against KR Reykjavík of Iceland and
are running the rule over nine Argentinian trialists. One of them,
Luis Raul Osvaldo, was involved in the attack that led to Traore’s
winning goal.

Hakobyan brothers

FC Banants beat FC MIKA 4-1 to exact revenge following their defeat
in the Armenian Cup final. Aram Voskanyan opened the scoring for
Mika, before Ara Hakobyan set up brother Aram for the equaliser five
minutes before half-time. The brothers combined again for Banants’
second, with Ara on the scoresheet, before Ara Hakobyan completed
his hat-trick with two more goals on 71 and 77 minutes.

First point

FC Araks won their first point of the campaign as their home game
against FC Lernagorts ended in a goalless stalemate. Araks have found
it hard to score this season and have found the back of the net just
once in eight games and have conceded 27 times. The game between FC
Kotayk and FC Dinamo-2000 Yerevan was postponed as Kotayk had to play
the Czech side 1. FC Brno in the UEFA Intertoto Cup.
