Young Stars in finals

PANAJI: Young Stars of Agasaim pipped Goa Velha United 5-3 via the tie-breaker to sail into the finals of Goa Velha Super Soccer, organised by Goa Velha Villagers at Goa Velha grounds.

In a rip-roaring semi-final, the Agassaim lads were on the hunt right from the start. Goa Velha keeper Joseph had to dive full length to keep an Alvito pile driver out. Again Agasaim half Santan was unlucky as his shot just sailed over after a through pass from Joel.

The teams crossed over with the score board blank. Immediately after the break, Goa Velha’s Trevor was a wee bit unlucky as Jonathan in the Agasaim goal averted danger by leaping high to keep his slate clean.

Blake Haldankar of Goa Velha dribbled past a few Agasaim defenders but his weak shot was easily cleared by Maclon. In the tie-breaker for Young Stars of Agasaim, Royston, Santan, Joel, Alvito and Perryson were on target and for Goa Velha only Vishant, Valington and Melroy were successful. NT
