Nuvem Veterans piped Quepem Veterans 2-0 to move into finals of Dr Gustavo Monteiro memorial veterans football tournament organized by Candolim Veterans at Dr Gustavo Monteiro ground, Candolim, Wednesday. There was no score at half time.
After resumption, Nuvem forged ahead through Constancio Rodrigues off a pass from Joaquim Fernandes.
Trailing by a goal, Quepem got their act together and exerted pressure on Nuvem defence but their forwards ran out of ideas in front of the goal. Nuvem almost doubled the lead but Martin missed from close.
With time running out, Nuvem scored again through Constancio. Quepem goalkeeper Jerry Fernandes pulled off some spectacular saves to deny Nuvem any more goals.
Constancio was declared man-of-the-match. Nuvem will take on Tuff Veterans in the finals. [H]
