Mangalore Blues S.C. leave Jai Hind S.C. in dismay after scoring 7 past them without reply

On 19th December ’15, Mangalore Blues Sports Club featured against Jai Hind Sports Club at Karnatak Sports Association ground, Mumbai in 20th Late Ramanath Payyade Memorial Football League Tournament. Two goals in first-half added-time somewhat decreased the level of frustration within the Mangalore Blues S.C. players for the red-card given to no.4 Mujaffar. 5 more followed in the second-half without reply as Mangalore Blues S.C. wrapped-up a resounding win over Jai Hind S.C. by 7 goals to zero.

Mangalore Blues S.C. started the half brightly, which saw a number of their runs and a goal called off for offside. Another chance was wasted by M.B.S.C around the 10th minute mark, and by the time the match past its first-quarter, they had already rattled the crossbar on two occasions. As the half progressed, M.B.S.C. looked morea-and-more threatening to open the goal-scoring and on a similar occasion in the 16th minute, no.22 Kevin D’Souza dragged a glorious one-on-one opportunity wide of the right-hand post.

The match witnessed a turning-point in the 19th minute, when no.4 Mujaffar of Mangalore Blues S.C. was shown a red-card for a foul on no.14 Vimesh Salian of Jai Hind S.C. and for the manner in which the former protested against that foul.

Despite being a man down, Mangalore Blues S.C. never dropped the level of their attacking pressure and continued their surge for the opening goal; fancying their chances against – to what they thought were – weaker opponents. The goal arrived as M.B.S.C. opened the scoring in the second minute of first-half added time via no.10 James D’Souza, whose free-kick found the left-corner of the goal from a spot near the half-way line as the goalkeeper was witnessed red-faced as he called for the ball, when it was midway in the air. A half, which was never short of action saw another leap, when Mangalore Blues S.C. doubled their lead in the final course of play in the first through no.22 Kevin D’Souza, who beat the goalkeeper from a tight-angle in a 1v1 situation. The goalkeeper was an ideal target to blamed for both the goals conceded during the first-half, but the overall team performance of Jai Hind S.C. was weak defensively as-well-as on an attacking front.

In the 33rd minute, no.13 Kelvin D’Souza chipped his effort over the goalkeeper to give M.B.S.C. a 3-goal cushion after an initial defensive error from Jai Hind S.C. left-back no.19 Surendra Belchada. M.B.S.C. never looked to stop scoring as no.22 dragged another attempt off-target, moments later.

The 4th goal arrived in the 42nd minute via no.19 Eustace Saldanha, who lashed-in a good shot right inside the left-bottom corner, which the goalie didn’t see until it was inside the goal. 3 minutes later, no.2 Royston Veigas hammered home the 5th to further solidify their advantage.

The game didn’t disappoint, certainly not in terms of goals. No.8 Adnan Yalgar scored; volleying-in the 6th for M.B.S.C. on the 20th-minute mark only for no.2 Royston Veigas to tap-in the follow-up and make it 7-0, 2 minutes later.

Having conceded 12 against Karnatak Sports Club, and now conceding 7 without reply versus Mangalore Blues S.C., Jai Hind S.C. needs answers to questions in order to avoid another humiliating defeat.
