PANJIM: St Rock Youth Club Majorda put up a strong second half fight to register a 2-0 win over spirited Sporting Club of Davorlim in the GFA Salcete Zone Third Division League play offs match played at Ambelim ground, on Thursday.
Both the teams started the match on a cautious note. Majorda’s Flesbon Ferrao and Ismail Pathan had couple of chances to put their team ahead but the players fumbled when it mattered most. At the other end, Davorlim’s Vito Miranda and Milton Colaco had a decent first half as the duo commanded the play for their side. Crossing over, St Rock YC looked more attacking side and managed to score the first in the 47th minute through Selvino Sequeira. St Rock made three changes as the coach introduced Suraj, Lucky and Joyston in place of Aston, Darren and Flesborn which bolstered their attack as well as defence. However, Davorlim weren’t ready to give up as the team attacked in numbers and even came close to scoring the leveller through Jovito and Robinson but the duo failed to take their chances. St Rock YC Majorda scored the second in the 89th minute through Samson Braganza.
