Meistriliiga week 5: Kalju hit their stride

Kalju 4-0 Viljandi

Following Kuressaare's unexpected win against Flora, Kalju won at a canter against Viljandi at the Sportland Arena yesterday. They scored four without reply but it could have been a lot more. Andres Koogas came back into the side for Kalju after starting on the bench in the midweek win at Paide, and he opened the scoring on 39 minutes with a free kick expertly curled around the wall and into the top corner. It was two before half time as Tarmo Neemelo scored his first of the season, a tidy finish at the near post following a left wing cross. 

Kristen Viikmäe made it three half way through the second half, blasting home from eight yards and Neemelo got his second of the game from close range on 77 minutes. It could have been nearer to ten had Kalju taken more of the hatful of chances they created, as Viljandi rarely threatened. 

Sillamäe undid Tallinna Kalev's good early season form, scoring their first goals of the season in a 4-1 victory in Sillamäe. They were 3-0 up by half time with two goals from Russian midfielder Vladislav Ivanov and another from Sergei Vihrov. Risto Kägo reduced the arrears for Tallinna Kalev late on but Vladimir Malinin restored Sillamäe's three goal advantage before the final whistle. A good first win of the season for Sillamäe.

Levadia continued their good start to the season with a 1-0 win over Tammeka in Tartu - Igor Subbotin scoring the only goal of the game in the first half.
