Cuncolim Union and Youth Club of Manora drew 1-1 in the Geno GFA First Division League at Government Village School ground, Ambelim on Monday. Youth Club of Manora were trailing at half time.  

Cuncolim Union dominated the opening session and had their share of good chances. Cuncolim Union’s breakthrough came in the 27th minute when striker John Kati slotted past the rival goalkeeper Agnelo Noronha with a snap shot. 

Earlier Cuncolim Union goalkeeper Subhasish Bose suffered an injury and was replaced by Osone Fernandes. Cuncolim Union had another chance when Desmon Pereira found Necil Pinto inside the rival penalty box and the last named shot wide from close range. Youth Club of Manora hardly made any inroads into the rival territory and the rival goalkeeper was hardly tested.  

Crossing over, Cuncolim Union continued to enjoy the better share of exchanges but could not inflate their tally due to inept shooting by their forwards. Youth Club of Manora finally managed to cancel the lead in the 64th minute when Benson Fernandes cleverly beat an advancing Cuncolim Union goalkeeper.  

Cuncolim Union had no reason to feel happy with the outcome. They collected 9 points from 4 matches. They lacked sharpness upfront and were often under pressure in the second half. Youth Club of Manora took their tally to 7 points from 4 matches.
