Margao: A brace by Francis Silveira helped Dempo Sports Club beat Tollygunge Agragami 4-1 in a National Football League match at Nehru Stadium Tuesday.
Dempo led 2-0 at half-time and scored through defender Olubiyi Majek Bolaji (20th), Wilton Gomes (24th) and Silveira (90th and injury time) while Akeem Abolanle reduced the margin for Tollygunge.
This was Dempo’s fourth win and took them to second place on 13 points from six matches. Tollygunge remain on four points after as many matches.
The locals started off well and surged into the lead through a flag-kick. Gomes from the left took the kick and floated the ball to defender Stanley Colaco, whose header was saved on the goalline by Sujoy Dutta and netted in off the rebound by Bolaji.
A resurgent Tollygunge fought back to make it 1-2 in the 49th minute but failed to sustain the momentum. (PTI)
