MARGAO: Shannon Veterans scored a commanding 2-0 win over Vasco Veterans and secured their berth in the finals of the All Goa Late Clement Memorial Veterans football tournament.

The match ignited with brilliance as Alvito D’cunha orchestrated a mesmerizing solo effort, slicing through Vasco's defense and deftly placing the ball beyond the goalkeeper's reach, propelling Shannon to a 1-0 lead at half-time.

Despite Vasco's valiant attempts to regroup through the efforts of Uday, Athul, and Raju, they were repeatedly thwarted by the seasoned midfield trio of Bibiano, Johnny D’Cruz, and Prestly. Goalkeeper Vikrant made some crucial saves to keep Shannon Veterans in the game. As Vasco pressed forward in search of an equaliser, Shannon seized the opportunity with Pratap capitalising on a sublime cross from Prestly to secure their second goal. They will now face Fatorda Veterans on April 7.

Alvito D’Cunha was adjudged man of the match for his stellar performance.
