Blue Star SC first to enter quarter-finals

Blue Star Sports Club, Kalutara came up with a brilliant performance to defeat Moragasmulla Sports Club 3-1 in their Vantage FFSL President’s Cup 2020 Football Tournament opening fixture played at the Sugathadasa Stadium in Colombo yesterday. Blue Star SC were in front 1-0 at half time.

Blue Star SC’s overseas player I. C. Uwanaka broke the deadlock when he received a good pass and made no mistake in netting the same to put his side in front with two minutes away from half time. Twelve minutes into the second half, Uwanaka once again showed his striking qualities when he netted the second goal for his side to bring the team to a firm footing (2-0).

Moragasmulla SC came back into the game when Eranga Prasad found the net in the 22nd minute to reduce the lead 1-2.

The last 15 minutes of the game saw both teams penetrating the danger areas frequently but none of them could gain any result out of their efforts.

The referee had no other option than to offer a penalty for the Blue Star SC and Edison Figarado did the needful with his kick which gave the Kalutara side a great victory.

This victory also paved the way for Blue Star SC to enter the quarter-final stage of the tournament
