GOA PRO LEAGUE
Sporting Clube de Goa came from behind to trounce Curtorim Gymkhana 5-1 in Gfa’s Goa Pro League at Duler Stadium, Mapusa, on Monday. The match was tied 1-1 at halftime.
Curtorim took the lead on the stroke of half time when Hanslyn Furtado converted a penalty, after Sporting Goa defender Clemente Joseph was adjudged to have brought down former Sporting Goa winger Xavier Dias inside the box.
The lead did not last long as Odafa Okolie promptly equalized for the Flaming Oranje after receiving a pass from substitute Ganesh Thakur.
After the resumption, Sporting Goa’s Ganesh got his name on the score sheet after receiving a neat through ball from Odafa.
Midway through the second half, Sporting Goa’s Franzil Negredo hit a beautiful volley into the back of the net to make it 3-1 after connecting onto Cajetan Fernandes’ tempting corner.
Deep into injury time, Sporting Goa’s Glan Martins set up Odafa who completed his brace when he delicately scooped over the goalkeeper and then Ganesh also netted his second of the game after another well executed pass from Glan.
