*Full report to be sent soon after final whistle*
*MAY 17, AMEBLIM: *
The Sporting team came into the semi-final off an impressive 6-0 win over
Panjim Footballers. While the FC Bardez side defeated SESA FA 3-1 in the
last eight round. The Flaming Oranje relied on a stable line up as they
named an unchanged squad, while the Bardez team brought in Hanslum Furtado
who was the star sub in the last game.
The Bardez side were the first to attack with better tactics and swing
shots that tore open the Sporting back line. Jessel Carneiro came close to
scoring on two attempts, but his shot was placed inches high from target.
The Bardez side kept attempting to find the opening goal as Neville
Albuquerque’s powerful long ranger from the half way mark was neatly tapped
away by the Sporting custodian.
The first half saw a complete domination from the Bardez side who had
couple of attempts to convert but failed to score. However, it was the
Sporting team who took the lead just before the end of the first half as
Alesh Savant crossed the ball inside to which Marcus Mascarenhas headed it
in giving the team a 1-0 lead at half time.
