UTORDA: Salgaocar FC consolidated their position in the ALL India Football Federation (AIFF) U-18 (Goa Zone) Youth League standing with a convincing 5-1 win over Churchill Brothers FC at Utorda ground on Wednesday.
A hat-trick by attacking medio Aaron Barreto and a goal each by Antush A Moniz and Chaitan Komarpant saw Sagaocar FC leave Churchill Brothers FC as the only team to open their account, having lost all their games.
Salgaocar FC led 2-0 at half time through goals by Aaron Barreto in the very second minute and then in extra time of the first half. The winners scored three more goals, during the second spell with Aaron scoring his third in the 61st minute and substitute Antush netting in the 65th minute and Chaitan Komarpant finishing the party in the 69th minute.
Churchill Brothers S C who were in the back foot for most part pulled a goal back through striker Ronaldo Coelho in the 82nd minute.
Setting up goal scoring opportunities with superior strength, Salgacoar FC had it rather easy against Churchill Brothers and demonstrating a lot of confidence, the Vasco based team never had any problems to take the ball forward and find the mark.
Salgacoar F C scored in the second minute when Chaitan Komarpant unleashed a power packed 25 yard shot which Churchill Brothers S C keeper managed to tip over, but the ball ricocheted off the cross bar and came to Aaron who simply tapped it in, past the bewildered Churchill Brothers keeper Myran Gomes.
Thereafter, the match began to be controlled by Salgacoar F C team as they camped into the Churchill Brothers box, but somehow would not find the mark due to some good defending by the Churchill Brothers S C team.
However, Churchill Brothers citadel fell again in extra- time of two minutes when Aaron chipped the ball over the Churchill Brothers S C’s keeper’s head off a pass from Chaitan Komarpant.
Aaron then completed his hat trick of goals off a free kick takne by Chaitan Komarpant with the ball landing at the feet of Aaron who lost no time in slamming it in very promptly.
Churchill Brothers thereafter show some glimpses of a fight back but only for a while with Salgacoar F C looking goal hungry for most part.
Chaitan Komarpant, was the Salgacoar F C’s star as he had a say in most of the goals that his team scored.
Chaitan himself found the mark off a pass from substitute Alrick Barreto to make it 5-0 in favour of his team.
Churchill Brothers suddenly created an opportunity to score when Salgacoar F C made their fourth substitution and Ronaldo Coelho scored off a cross from the right flank.
