Super Division: Pereira helps Juhu do volte-face against Springfield

Mumbai, February 26, 2019: Tyson Pereira donned the role of super sub as Juhu Sparks thrashed Springfield FA 5-1 at the Neville D’Souza Ground on Tuesday.

The first half ended at 1-1 as Juhu struggled to break down stubborn defending.

Mervin Kurisingal gave Springfield the lead in the 7th minute only for Nickinson Misquitta to level the scoreline in the 32nd minute. A peach of a goal it was for Juhu!

If a closely contested first half finished at 1-1 the second was the polar opposite.

Pereira came in for Misquitta in the 55th minute and made all the difference!

He beat a defender on the left and set up Mahesh Kotkar for an easy tap in in the 63rd minute. 2-1 and Juhu was on a roll!

Prathamesh Kamble joined the party as he slammed home in the  73rd minute. 3-1 and Springfield was falling apart!

As Pereira’s cheeky shot rebounded off a defender’s hand inside the box… the referee had no hesitation as he pointed to the spot!

Nickel D’Souza held his nerve and dispatched it past the goalkeeper in the 76th minute. 4-1 and Juhu was cruising home!

It was poetic justice that Pereira curled in an 84th minute strike and made it 5-1 for Juhu.

A super performance from the super sub!
