Calangute Association 0

Boima Jerry Karpeh netted a fine brace as Sporting Clube de Goa overcame Calangute Association 3-0 in Gfa’s Goa Pro League at Duler Stadium, Mapusa on Saturday. Sporting Goa led 2-0 at the interval.

It was a comfortable victory for Sporting Goa, who brought back Anthony Wolfe into the side to partner Boima Karpeh upfront, while Glenton Wolfe was rested.

Sporting Goa took the lead after just thirteen minutes, when Boima was lurking to opportunistically tap in a wonderful cross from Anthony.

Just before the breather, the Flaming Oranje stepped on the gas one more time, with Boima feeding Mauvin Borges who performed a repertoire of dummies and step-over’s, before letting fly a stiff grounder into the far corner of the net.

In the second session, Sporting Goa continued to dominate possession and kept raining shots on the Calangute goal. If it was not for the heroics of the Calangute custodian Gerard D’Mello, it could have been worse.

In the final five minutes, Sporting Goa substitute Joe Pereira collapsed in the box after falling victim to a reckless challenge. Boima stepped up to convert the penalty and seal the three points for the Flaming Oranje.

Sporting Clube de Goa overpower Dempo

GFA U-16 League

Dempo SC 0
Sporting Clube de Goa 1 (Dwayne Britto ’10)

Sporting Clube de Goa
started their campaign on a winning note by overpowering Dempo Sports Club 1-0 in Gfa’s U-16 1st division league match at Duler Stadium, Mapusa on Thursday. Sporting Goa led 1-0 at the lemon break.
Sporting Goa took the lead early on when a diagonal ball was swept from the left side to pick out Dwayne Britto and he took the ball in his stride, before dispatching it past the helpless Dempo custodian.
After resumption, Sporting Goa had the opportunity to double the lead when Nitani Korane was played through on goal, but the Dempo goalkeeper did well to spread himself and deflect the ball away from the target.
Dempo came close to scoring when Wilbur Lobo went for a fifty-fifty ball with the Sporting Goa goalkeeper, but both collided with each other and the ball was cleared away to safety.
Moments later Dempo’s Wilbur headed the ball goal bound from a corner kick but it flew just wide of the post.
At the other end, Stendly Fernandes hoisted in a swinging flag kick for the Flaming Oranje, but Maxwell Fernandes’ header was cleared of the goal line.

Joybert stars in GFDC (South) victory


Sporting Clube de Goa 2 (Aman Govekar ’67 & ’70)
GFDC (South) 4 (Rudresh Naik ‘1, Joybert Almeida ‘9, ’28, ’65)

Joybert Almeida netted a hat-trick as GFDC (South) overcame Sporting Clube de Goa 4-2 in Gfa’s U-14 1st division match, at Don Bosco ground, Panjim on Wednesday. GFDC were 3-0 up at the breather.
GFDC took their opponents by surprise after going ahead in the very first minute through Rudresh Naik, who tapped in a cross from Joybert.
Within ten minutes, GFDC went 2-0 up when Joybert placed the ball past the rival custodian from the penalty spot, after a Sporting Goa player was adjudged to have handled the ball in the box.
At this stage, the Flaming Oranje Juniors were still playing positive football and could have easily drawn level. First Sporting Goa striker Aman Govekar hit the bar with a rasping shot and moments later Aman was dragged down in the box, but team mate Shannon Viegas missed the spot kick.
Just before the lemon break, GFDC breached the opposition defence once again as Joybert slipped the ball into the back of the net.
Changing over, Sporting Goa thoroughly dominated possession and created a number of chances, but was crowded out by two tall physical stopper backs once close to the goal. Aman came closest after dribbling past three defenders but fired against the cross bar for the second time in the match.
In the closing stages, Joybert completed his-hatrick for GFDC. Credit to Sporting Goa who never gave up and netted two fine goal’s at the death. Aman stroked in a calm penalty kick and moments later fired in again to complete his brace.
