Guirdolim down DBO Fatorda to clinch title



Guirdolim SC beat Don Bosco Oratory, Fatorda 2-0 to win the finals of ICC Rebelo Memorial football tournament played at St Rita church grounds, Maina-Curtorim on Thursday.

Irfan Yadwad and Darren Fernandes helped Guirdolim SC earn the top honours as they struck once each in the second half.

Thursday turned out to be a disappointing day for DBO Fatorda who suffered defeats in both their final matches played here and earlier at Chinchinim grounds.

The Fatorda side put up good show in the first half but could not maintain their hold in the second session as Guirdolim overpowered them with two good goals.

Irfan Yadwad, the speedy striker of Guirdolim SC, scored his team’s first goal in the 55th minute as his powerful shot brushed against a rival defender and crashed into the nets beating Don Bosco keeper.

The match then continued to be played ferociously with DBO Fatorda trying some moves which were killed in the bud by Guirdolim SC’s veteran defender Severaj D’Costa.

On many occasions, DBO Fatorda tried to find the mark but the Guirdolim SC keeper Oswin Rodrigues proved to be a safe pair of hands.

As the match neared its end, Guirdolim’s stylish medio Darren Fernandes found the mark with an angular effort that completed their 2-0 victory.
