Goa Pro League: FC Goa Dev Team lose 0-1 to Dempo SC

A gritty FC Goa Developmental team lost 0-1 to Dempo SC in their Goa Pro League match held at Duler Stadium, Mapusa on Tuesday.

The Gaurs started with Opi up front, flanked by Kapil Hoble and Sweden Fernandes. Sweden was one of two changes to the team that drew 1-1 against Sesa, the other being Christy Davis who played just behind the striker.

The Dev Team started well and created a few chances from the outset. Christy dribbled past his man but his cross was stopped by a Dempo defender. Minutes later, he was at the end of a cross from Sweden but could only direct his header wide.

Dempo eventually took the lead through their captain Joaquim Abranches who took the lead after confusion in the box. Aaren D’Silva, Tlunga and Ivon Costa came on as substitutes. Aaren had a few chances to equalise towards the end of the game but could not get his shots on target.

Dev team keeper Anthony Dylan D’Silva kept well to keep the Eagles to a solitary goal. The FC Goa Dev Team now have 4 points from 3 games played.
