TSW Pegasus put a trying week behind them as midfield maestro Wong Chin-hung scored a hat-trick in their 8-0 demolition of TM Progoal in the Coolpoint Ventilation First Division at Hong Kong Stadium yesterday. The Hong Kong international struck his first hat-trick in a one-sided match, which also saw Guy Ondoua grab a double. Goals from Eugene Mbome, Cheng Siu-wai and Manoel Santos completed the rout. South China, meanwhile, came back from a lacklustre first half to trounce newly promoted Mutual 4-1 in the second match of yesterday's double-header 'This was just wonderful,' said the 26-year-old Wong, who is on loan from South China. 'I have never scored a hat-trick before and it just came at the right time. 'Our morale was so low after the substitution blunder in midweek, but the incident also made us a stronger side. Hopefully, we can now put the midweek disaster behind us.' Pegasus came from behind to edge South China 3-2 last Wednesday, but the HKFA is likely to award the match to the Caroliners as Pegasus had inadvertently fielded a seventh overseas player for four minutes of the match. The rules allow for only six expatriate players on the field at any one time. Pegasus coach Ricardo Rambo was facing the sack after the blunder, but a petition by the players has saved his job for now. The Brazilian did, however, receive a warning letter and has had his win bonus docked for three matches - including HK$3,000 for yesterday's victory. In the second match, South China went into an early lead when Chan Siu-ki scored from the penalty spot in the sixth minute. But they were under pressure for the rest of the first half. Ande Apollo equalised for Mutual in the 21st minute. The Caroliners were back in top gear after the break despite having Detinho sent off in the 78th minute for a second booking. Two goals from Tales Schutz and one from Au Yeung Yiu-chung sealed the victory.
