Comfortable win for Salgaocar
May 02, 2004 20:07 IST
Salgaocar Sports Club, Goa piled on the miseries of hapless Indian Bank to score a 3-1 win in their penultimate match of the eighth National Football League championship in Chennai on Sunday.
The Durand Cup champions, who have had a really bad run in this edition of NFL, came out firing on all cylinders against the home side scoring twice before the break to ensure the three points and take their points tally to 26.
The Bankmen, facing relegation, were sent on the back foot in the fifth minute itself when Samson Singh slotted home a Remus Gomes cross.
Nigerian recruit Felix Ibreeev doubled the lead for the visitors when he beat the Indian Bank custodian Ananda Vasan with a long ranger at the stroke of half time.
The local outfit looked like finding their footing after the breather and Mahendra Mani reduced the margin in the 57th minute.
With heavy showers making the ground conditions slippery, Salgaocar's substitute Fredy Mascarenhas beat Vasan to complete the scoreline.
