GFA Vedanta Women’s League 2021/22: Utterly dominant FC Goa beat Young Boys of Tonca 8-0

FC Goa made it three wins from three as they dismantled Young Boys of Tonca 8-0 today at the Duler Stadium in Mapusa. Velanie Fernandes was the star of the afternoon as the midfielder scored four herself to secure the three vital points.

Sugitesh Mandrekar’s girls looked dominant from the start and took the lead early on. Velanie scored her first in the 20th minute as her shot from the edge of the box crept into the net.

The special agents of FC Goa didn’t have to wait too long to increase their lead as Velanie was on the mark yet again two minutes later, this time with a deft finish from close range.

And the Gaurs weren’t done yet in the first half. Namita Govekar struck with a diving header at the fag end of the first half to give FC Goa a three goal cushion going into the break.

The break didn’t mean any kind of let off from the girls in Orange as Velanie scored her 4th within 10 minutes of the restart – the midfielder this time striking from a free kick.

With goal difference set to be crucial at the top of the table, the Gaurs kept the pedal to the metal as Alisha Tavares made it 5-0 in the 64th minute. 4 minutes later it was 6-0 as Namita scored her second.

The icing on the cake came at the end of the game. The 87th minute saw Velanie score her fourth of the game to make it 7-0 and three minutes into added time Arpita Pednekar rounded off the rout with the team’s 8th and the final score reading 8-0.
