First Division: Signals pip Tonca
Corps of Signals collected full points when they registered a hard fought solitary goal victory against Young Boys of Tonca in the GFA First Division Football League match played at military grounds, Navelim on Thursday.
Both the teams played out a fast pace match but it was the Corps of Signals team that had a slight edge over their rivals.
Young Boys of Tonca tried to beat the Signals keeper in both the sessions of play with some good shots but Signals keeper Lalwat Hala brought off spectacular saves.
In the second session, the proceedings began to get more lively. In a fast paced move, Signals scored the all- important goal in the 70th minute of play when Mohammad Ibrahim leaped high to head to the far corner of the rival nets off a neat cross from M H Sangah.
Tonca keeper Parshuram who otherwise had a good day had no answer at all to the header that Mohammad Ibrahim sent so powerfully. [NT]
