Sporting Clube sink SAI
PANJIM: A dominating second half performance by Sporting Clube de Goa helped them register a 3-1 win over Sports Authority of India (SAI) Training Centre in the Goa Football Association U-16 League match played at Don Bosco ground, Panjim.
The young Flaming Oranje took the lead in the second minute when Rio Fernandes curled his free-kick over the wall, which had no answer from the rival keeper.
Sporting enjoyed better ball possession and attacked their opponents using the width as Rio continuously played crosses in the box but much to his dismay, his teams strikers either shot wide or couldn’t keep their composure.
SAI Training Centre relied on the counter attacks and finally netted the leveller when Yash Kapse kept his composure as he dribbled past couple of Sporting defenders and also the keeper before coolly placing the ball in the far right corner, 1-1. The teams were tied 1-1 at the break.
SAI’s Siddesh Mandage was sent off following his second yellow early in the second half. Having numerical advantage, Sporting Clube netted two more goals through Brenan Rodrigues and Nash Camilo.
