Liston treble puts Salgaocar Jrs into finals
Liston Colaco’s hat-trick powered Salgaocar Juniors into the finals of GFA Under-16 football league as they knocked out Guardian Angel SC 4-0 in the play-off match played at Cuncolim grounds on Thursday. The other goal was scored by Macanzy Fernandes.
In the first half, Guardian Angel managed to keep a clean sheet but Salgaocar pressed harder to find the opener in the 50th minute when their nippy striker Liston scored after speeding down the middle to beat the rival keeper.
Within the next three minutes, Liston was at it again, finding the mark with an angular shot. The two quick goals scored had shaken the Guardian Angel team and their defence was soon in disarray as their rivals made quick moves displaying hunger for more goals.
In the 62nd minute, Macanzy Fernandes scored from an assist by Liston. Two minutes later, Liston completed his hat-trick after receiving a good pass from Macanzy. [NT]
