What a game. Goa took the lead against the run of pplay and then conceded an unlucky equaliser straight after the restart for the second half. To be fair the home side never got going after that but they will feel absolutely sick to be sucker-punched late in the game again. One step forward and two back. For the Blasters 8 points from their last 12. Their season is finally on a steady climb rate after major take-off issues. Good night from Goa.
