An injury time goal by striker Felix Ibrebru helped Salgaocar beat Vasco 1-0 and record their first win in the 9th National Football League at the Nehru Stadium here today. Salgaocar failed to cash in on their advantage in the first half after Vasco was reduced to ten men when their Brazilian recruit got expelled after getting his second yellow card. Salgaocar did more of the probing before the break and created several chances which were wasted by their erratic strikers. The pattern repeated in the second half the match headed to a goalless draw. But Salgaocar made amends for all their earlier lapses when a deflected shot by Rocus Lamare was tapped in by Ibrebru following a goalmouth melee. The win gave Salgaocar their first three points after their shock defeat to promotees State Bank of Travancore last week. Salgaocar also were reduced to ten men in the last quarter when Micky Fernandes got his second yellow card for a rough challenge on Menino. For Vasco it was their second defeat in as many matches in the new season. (PTI)
