straight title YEREVAN, Oct 19 (Reuters) – Pyunik Yerevan hammered
lowly Shirak Gyumri 6-1 on Tuesday to clinch their fourth consecutive
Armenian league title with four rounds of matches to spare.

The win gave Pyunik an insurmountable 16-point lead over second-placed
Mika Ashtarak, who were held to a 1-1 draw by Kotaik Abovyan. It also
secured them a league and cup double this season, their second such
feat in the last three years.

It was Pyunik’s sixth league win since 1992 when the small Caucasus
country began conducting their own independent championship following
the collapse of the Soviet Union.
