Cuncolim: A hat-trick by striker Trijoy Dias and a goal from Trenoy Dias enabled Cuncolim Union to register a well deserved 4-0 win against Santa Cruz Club of Cavelossim and enter the quarterfinals of Yaari Cup football tournament played at Cuncolim grounds on Saturday.
Cuncolim Union’s ace striker Trijoy Dias scored in the 12th, 30th and 53rd minute of play to complete his hat-trick while Trenoy found the mark in the 33rd minute.
Cuncolim who led 3-0 at half time, had an easy time against their rivals as the defence of Santa Cruz Club of Cavelossim appeared to be completely brittle which cracked under slightest of pressure.
As such, Cuncolim’s Trijoy easily beat the rival keeper Reaston Cardozo who could do nothing to stop Trijoy from finding the mark.
Cuncolim Union’s midfield did a good job of spreading the ball well on both the flanks, besides sending some defence splitting passes that helped the team to score goals with ease.
Santa Cruz defenders put up a stiff resistance in the second session which saw Aston Vaz and Allan Fernandes working in tandem with each other to keep the Cuncolim strikers at bay.
Cuncolim’s defence manned by Estrocio Fernandes and company did a marvellous job, while in the midfield Cliffton Fernandes was easily the pick of the lot.
