Margao:

Title aspirants Salgaocar were forced to play a goalless draw and split points in their match against Hindustan Aeronautic Sports Club, thanks to a superb performance by HASC 'keeper Gumpe Rime in the 6th Tata National Football League on Sunday. Salgaocar, who dominated the match throughout, did everything except scoring, as their strikers failed to convert the chances that came their way. Rime, who was a stumbling block under the bar, came to the rescue of his side and saved at least a dozen chances to deny Salgaocar full points. Salgaocar's ace striker Sunday Seah, who tormented the rival defence, was unlucky twice when his try hit the woodwork and once he was ruled offside when he got the ball inside the goal area. HASC, who were at the receiving end came up with occasional counter moves but those fizzled out in the rival citadel. Salgaocar are placed second with 27 points from 15 matches while HASC have collected 22 points from as many outings. (PTI)
