Santosh Trophy: Goa, TN in goalless draw


Five-time winners Goa were held to a goalless draw by last year’s finalists Tamil Nadu in their quarter-final league match of the 67th Santosh Trophy at Kollam, Friday.
Both teams had their share of chances to score but in the end trooped out with a split verdict.
Goa goalkeeper Melroy Fernandes was the star of the day and even won the man of the match award for his superlative performance. He stood like a rock and denied Tamil Nadu strikers on a number of occasions.
Goa’s Velito, Marcus, Joe and Jerose looked prospective but failed to breach the TN goal when time was ripe. Goa next meet Maharashtra on Sunday, Feb 24. [NT]
