GUIRDOLIM: Fr Agnelo YSC, Paroda scored a fluent 2-0 win to edge past Margao SC and move to the semis of the Guirdolim Panchayat Cup, organised by Guirdolim Club, at Chandor church complex, Chandor, in Sunday.
One counter attack by Paroda in the 22nd minute saw Anthony Dias connect a low cross by Kanchan Kiro to score the first goal for Paroda. Margao then committed more bodies forward but could not penetrate the Paroda defence.
Changing over, Paroda started to show dominance and put the Margao defence under immense pressure. In the 42nd minute, a shot from 40 yards out by Shrine Clemente hit the crossbar and on to the back of the Margao keeper into the goal to make the score 2-0 in favour of Paroda. In the 50th minute, a free-kick by Cliff Baretto of Fatorda narrowly missed the Paroda goal. In the dying minutes, Agnelo Noronha's pile driver was kept out by the Paroda goalkeeper.
Shrine Clemente of Fr Agnelo YSC, Paroda was awarded the man-of- the-match award by Joaquim D'Cruz, ex player of Guirdolim Club.
