GFA U-14 League
Samword Pereira netted a fine brace as Salgaocar FC overcame Sporting Clube de Goa 3-1 in Gfa’s U-14 League at Seraulim ground, on Monday. Salgaocar led 3-0 at the lemon break.
Samword opened the scoring after just seven minutes when he volleyed into the net after the ball was whipped in from the right flank by Aaron Barreto.
Within sixty seconds, Salgaocar doubled their lead when Samword tapped in after receiving the ball from Bryson’s Fernandes’ neat cut back.
Just before the break Aaron Barreto carefully lifted the ball over the goalkeeper for Salgaocar’s third.
Changing over, Sporting Goa looked like a team that had completely transformed. In the opening minute, Shubham Shirwaikar showed great intent when he fired in to pull a goal back for the Flaming Oranje.
Despite Sporting Goa’s resilient fight back they could not further add to the score board.
