Cuncolim Union edge Saligao United
Cuncolim Union overcame Saligao United 2-1 in the 7th London Football Trophy at Goa Velha grounds on Thursday. Trevon scored for Cuncolim Union early in the game.
After receiving a pass from Daulat, Trevon quickly dispatched the ball to the roof of the Saligao United goal giving Dietmar in the goal no chance. At the other end, Clifton was mortified to see his full blooded shot come back from the Cuncolim goal upright. The very next minute, Saligao Unted’s Trevor provided a defence-splitting pass to Pravin who, however, shot over the bar. At the break, Cuncolim were leading 1-0. Immediately on resumption, Trevon completed his brace for Cuncolim while shooting to the far right off a diving Dietmar. Saligao United in an effort to reduce the margin launched a series of attacks. Terence was set up by Dylan but he shot straight into the hands of Cuncolim keeper Tylex. Saligao reduced the margin at the fag end of the game. Saligao were rewarded a penalty as Cuncolim’s Rosario handled the ball inside the danger zone. Jose Alvares who stepped up to take the kick easily scored from the spot sending Cuncolim keeper Tylex on the wrong side. [NT]
