Pyunik's dominance in the Armenian league has continued...

Related LinksArmenian powerhouse Pyunik have clinched their
ninth consecutive Armenian title, after beating Shirak 3-1 in
their penultimate league game to preserve a four-point lead over
second-placed Mika.

The Yerevan side were in danger of being taken to their final fixture
when Shirak levelled the scores on 47 minutes through Felix Khojoyan,
after Albert Tadevosyan had given Pyunik the lead shortly before
the break.

However, the 19-year-old striker scored again on 52 and 66 minutes to
make it 62 points from 27 matches, leaving Mika to settle for second
place with Ulis Yerevan in third.

"I am happy with our victory because it is always difficult for us
to play at Shirak. The lads were committed and proved their excellence.

Despite that win and our new league title, we will not celebrate
anything now. We still have one match to play at a high level and it
is only after that that we will have some rest," said Pyunik coach
Vardan Minasyan to reporters.
