Tavora stunner helps FC Goa beat Chennaiyin in 9-goal thriller

Press Trust of India  |  Margao 

Young Indian player Sahil Tavora struck twice, including a last-gasped stunner, as FC beat last edition champions Chennaiyin FC 5-4 in Indian Super League's highest scoring nail-biting match here today.

In a match between last edition finalists, which was also their respective final matches this season, prevailed over the side with 21-year-old Tavora firing in a screamer from the edge of the box into the Chennaiyin goal with just a few seconds left in the three-minute injury added time to end a dramatic match.



Coming as substitute at the start of the second half, Tavora had scored his first goal of the match in the 68th minute. Goa's other goals came from Rafael Coelho (6th and 76th) and Joffre Gonzalez (21st).

Jerry Lalrinzuala (4th) Dudu Omagbemi (28th) and John Arne Riise (88th) scored for Chennaiyin while player Gregory Arnolin conceded an own goal.

Goa, coached by legendary Brazillian footballer Zico, ended their campaign on a high but they still finished at the bottom of the league table with 14 points from 14 matches (4 wins, 2 draws, 8 losses).

In a way, they avenged last year's controversial summit clash at the same venue, where Zico's side ended as runners-up with Chennaiyin lifting the trophy.

Chennaiyin, coached by Italian World Cup winner Marco Materazzi, ended just one place above at seventh place with 15 points from 14 matches (3 wins, 6 draws, 5 losses).

Both sides were out of the reckoning for a play-offs berths and with nothing at stake, they played freely and it was a goal fest and the nine goals scored today were the highest in the three-edition old ISL.

18-year-old Jerry Lalrinzuala of Chennaiyin also became the youngest scorer in ISL 3 when he curled in a brilliant free-kick into net in the fourth minute of the match.

A move from the middle saw Richarlyson Felisbino foul on Anrirudh Thapa just outside the box and Lalrinzuala sent the ball to the far corner of the net giving keeper Laxmikant Kattimani no chance to react.

The home team retaliated almost immediately and found the equaliser two minutes later when Joffre Gonzlez sent a brilliant pass to Rafael Coelho who sent the ball past an onrushing keeper into the net.

The visitors once again took the lead in the14th minute. Thoi Singh made a run into the box from the right, took a crack at the goal which keeper Kattimani blocked but the ball fell on the path of Anirudh Thapa whose shot deflected defender Gregory Arnolin and went in.
