Guirdolim storm into final



Guirdolim SC entered the finals of ICC Rebelo Memorial inter village football tournament defeating Curtorim Gymkhana 2-0, at St Rita church grounds, Maina-Curtorim on Monday.

Both the teams matched each other well for the first fourteen minutes of play as chances fell for both at either end. But the strikers of both the teams messed up the opportunities that came their way as they shot the ball wide from close distance.

As the match progressed, Guirdolim made a dashing move through M Vaz who sped down the left flank and passed the ball to Daron Fernandes, whose gentle touch found the back of the nets in the 15th minute, surprising Curtorim Gymkhana keeper Johnson Bhagat.

Curtorim Gymkhana who were without their regular players, displayed some attacking soccer but when it came to bulging the nets, their strikers simply could not find the mark. Guirdolim SC buttressed their lead in the 40th minute when Daron once again scored easily with an angular effort.

Guirdolim SC had a couple of shots at the rival goal late in the second session but Johnson Bhagat stood firm under the bar.

Guirdolim SC will now meet Don Bosco Oratory in the finals scheduled on August 15.
