Connie Enterprises beat Nuvem Veterans

Connie Enterprises, Mungul beat Nuvem Veterans by a solitary goal to enter the quarter-finals of the All Goa Navelim veterans football tournament played at Rosary church grounds, Navelim on Tuesday.

The all-important goal was scored by Brian Fernandes in the 15th minute of the first session. There was no score in the second half, even though there were quite a number of chances for both the teams to score. Connie Veterans had the upper hand in both the sessions of play with Roque Pereira and Elvis Pereira doing most of the moves to rattle the Nuvem defence. However, Xavier Colaco who played his heart out bottled-up the Connie strikers, who found the going tough in finding the mark with first time clearances. [NT]
