Our Lady of Gloria SC, Raia entered the semi-finals of St Joseph’s Festival Cup football tournament defeating Curtorim Gymkhana by a solitary goal played at Dramapur grounds on Friday.
The all important goal in favour of Our Lady of Gloria SC which proved to be the match winner, came off in the 15th minute when Eldon Colaso bulged the nets with an angular effort.
As a matter of fact both the teams almost played on equal footing with Our Lady of Gloria SC, Raia having a slight edge over their rivals.
Both teams were strong in the defence and the midfield of both the teams worked in completely tandem with each other.
Had it not been for the error on the part of Curtorim Gymkhana defence which appeared confused following a good cross that culminated into a goal in the first session, the script of the match could have been different altogether.
Curtorim Gymkhana tried their level best to find the equaliser but in vain as the Raia team’s defence stood quite firm.
