Colva-Max enter quarter-finals


 Colva-Max veterans entered the quarter-finals of Ambelim veterans football tournament when they registered a well deserved 2-0 victory against Quepem veterans played at SAG grounds,
Assolna on Tuesday. Fr George Ratos scored both the goals for Colva veterans. Fr Ratos took his Colva team into the lead in the 20th minute of the first half through a fine shot and then added one more goal in the 60th minute which bore the stamp of  class. Colva-Max veterans initiated most of their moves through Vishant Pednekar. They could have scored at least two more goals had it not been for fine goalkeeping done by Ambelim veterans keeper Jerry Fernandes who eventually won the man-of-the match award in this inaugural match today. Both the teams tried to outwit each other with some good passes but when it came to long through balls, the strikers on both the sides did not exhibit abilities to control the ball and guide it into the net.
