Mumbai:

Three-time champions Railways held reigning champions Maharashtra to a 1-1 draw to enter the semi-finals from Group-C, while Goa beat Punjab with a second half goal to make it to the last four stage from Group-D of the 57th National Football Championship for Santosh Trophy here today. Maharashtra took the lead through mid-fielder Venkatesh, who headed a centre from striker Tombo Singh, in the third minute of the match but looked a disjointed squad and conceded the equalizer in the sixth minute when Railways winger Manjinder Singh scored off a pass from mid-fielder Surjeet Tigga. In the second match, Goa substitute Jose Colaco who came in for mid-fielder Mario Soares in the 10th minute scored the all-important goal in the 47th minute to put his team through to the semis.
