Margao strikers capitalise on penalties to enter final

Cavelossim: Margao SC entered the final of Cavelossim Panchayat Cup football tournament defeating Sporting Club of Davorlim 5-4 via the tie breaker played at Fr Drunstan and Wellington grounds on Wednesday. The teams played a 1-1 draw during the regulation time.

It was Sporting Club of Davorlim that went into the lead in the 29th minute when Agnelo Colaso bulged the nets off a smart cross from Abhay Shetty to beat the rival keeper Switzel Pereira.

Undeterred by the reverse, Margao SC thereafter created several goal bound moves when Velton D’Souza and Cliff Barretto almost scored as they fired two shots each but the Davorlim keeper Sachin Astekar managed to bring some smart saves.

However, in the second session, Margao who dominated the major part of the proceedings looked determined to find the mark and levelled the score midway into the second session through Velito Miranda whose angular effort gave no chance at all to the Davorlim keeper.

In the tie breaker Margao SC proved to be the better shooters, scoring accurately through Roque Barretto, Velito Miranda, Edgar and Cliff Barretto. Sporting Club of Davorlim could find the mark only through F.Venson, Abhay Shetty and Paxton Gomes.

Margao SC will now meet Navelim Sporting in the final scheduled to be played on November 10.
