The league’s top-scorer this season, Sunday now has 10 strikes to his credit.
The Dhanmondi outfit doubled their lead in the 35th minute in pretty much the same fashion.
A long throw-in from Rayhan Hasan was headed towards the path of young forward Nabib Newaj Jibon, and he made no mistake heading home his ninth league goal this season.
Abahani have now done the double over Nofel following their 2-1 victory earlier this season.
