Sporting Clube de Goa downed Vasco Sports Club 3-0 and moved to the fourth position in the points table of the 9th National Football League in Margao today. Sporting Clube de Goa, who were leading 2-0 at half time, scored through Joseph Pereira (12th, 61st) and Alvito Rodrigues (37th). Vasco, who had two wins over Kolkata's Mohun Bagan and Tollygunge, failed to get past the rival defence although they had a couple of scoring chances. Sidney Rodrigues and Fabio Soraes failed to find the target. The win took Sporting to fourth place with 17 points from 10 matches. While Vasco, who finished their league engagement, are at the bottom with 8 points from 11 matches. Match under control Sporting, who had lost to Churchill Bros in their last match, today had the match under their control. Striker Edeh Chidi, along with Alvito Rodrigues and Joseph Pereira, kept on probing into the rival half, with the side taking the lead in 12th minute. Cedric Peixoto, who took the flag kick, floated the ball to Joseph Pereira, who uncorked an angular drive that beat keeper Virender Singh to find the far post. Chidi, who troubled the rival defence constantly, helped Rodrigues to increase the lead when he got the better of a rival defender and squared to Alvito, who beat Virender with a grounder. Jospeh Pereira then clinched the issue after the break when he scored his second goal off a pass from Edeh Chidi. Joseph was later declared the Man of the Match. (PTI)
