Gumpe Rime denies Salgaocar full points
Title aspirants Salgaocar were held to a goalless draw by
Hindustan Aeronautics Sports Club, thanks to a superb performance
by HASC 'keeper Gumpe Rime, in a Tata National Football League
match in Margao, Goa, on Sunday.
Salgaocar, who dominated the match throughout, did
everything except scoring, as their strikers failed to convert
the many chances that came their way.
Rime, who proved the stumbling block, came to
the rescue of his side and saved at least a dozen chances to
deny the former champions full points.
Salgaocar's ace striker Sunday Seah, who tormented the
rival defence, was unlucky twice, when his try hit the woodwork.
On one occasion, he was ruled offside after getting the ball
inside the goal area.
HASC who were at the receiving end came up with
occasional counter moves but those fizzled before entering the
Salgaocar are placed second, with 27 points from 15
Matches, while HASC have 22 points from as many
