Police into Aaha-Rara Gold Cup semisTej Tamang and Saujan Rai Yakkha were also on the scoresheet as the six-time winners set a last-four clash with African Root Association at the Pokhara Stadium.
Buddha Bal Tamang scored a brace as Nepal Police Club crushed Three Star Club 4-0 to advance into the semi-finals of the Aaha-Rara Gold Cup football tournament on Tuesday.
Tej Tamang and Saujan Rai Yakkha were also on the scoresheet as the six-time winners set a last-four clash with African Root Association at the Pokhara Stadium.
Buddha put Police in front at the half-hour mark with a one-touch finish when Tej's long free kick found the unmarked striker inside the box.
Man-of-the-match Tej doubled the lead in the 67th minute converting a pass from Nir Kumar Rai.
Buddha stretched in the lead six minutes later, tapping a cross from Suman Lama.
Saujan then wrapped up the victory in the 85th volleying from the penalty area, also assisted by Suman.
"Our team could not play their best in the first 25 minutes. But after the first goal, they found their form," said Police coach Ananta Raj Thapa. "But we need even better performance in the semi-final against a physically stronger African side."
Three Star Coach Urjan Shrestha said the players could not play well due to fatigue.
"We did not even have time to rest," said Shrestha, whose side had reached Pokhara after lifting the Bagmati Gold Cup in Makwanpur on Monday.
"But I am happy with their performance," he added.
Sankata Club will meet Armed Police Force Club in the first semi-final on Wednesday while Police's last-four match against the Africans is set for Thursday.
The final will take place on Saturday.
