2nd Day Vice President Cup, Defending champion TA accepts defeat before the WG Boys

                 

Port Blair, Oct. 30: The second day of the ongoing Vice President Cup Soccer Championship, has been a day of surprises. The surprise was that the confident looking defending Champion Territorial Army lost its match to the boys of Wimberlygunj.

In the day’s most awaited match played here at Bishop John Richardson Stadium Car Nicobar, the team of TA seemed little relaxed, in the beginning, but the WG Boys had some different plans this time. They executed their plans effectively, and succeeded in taking the lead by scoring the first goal. The WG players showed better coordination and scored the second goal too..  The Army team then started making attacks, but they could not convert the attempts into goals. Though it managed to score a goal in the last few minutes of the match. With this result the teams like WG proved that they too are a force to reckon with and they should not be taken lightly.

Earlier in the day Campbell bay defeated Rangat by 2-0, and the strong Car Nicobar-A team crashed Mayabunder by 8-0.

In the third match played today at Bishop John Richardson Stadium the team of Teressa won its match against Diglipur by 7-1.

Its festive looking atmosphere here at Car Nicobar all around. The Football crazy people are enjoying every bit of the matches being played.
