Dempo edge past Chirag United Kerala
Margao, Jan 14 (PTI): Two first-half goals helped Dempo SC to open their I-League second phase campaign on a winning note, as they edge past Chirag United Kerala 2-1 in a 14th round match and stay at the top of the table, at Nehru Stadium, Fatorda here.
Goals from Clifford Miranda (4th) and Ranty Martins (25th) helped Dempo stay at the top with 30 points from 14 matches.
Chirag, who reduced the margin through Vineeth in the 28th minute, remained on 12th position with 11 points from 14 matches.
Unlike their last game, in which Dempo played a lethargic game to lose against Prayag United, the home side started brightly today, as they showed a lot of urgency in their attack and created handful of chances.
But their strikers either failed to cash in on the chances or failed to beat rival keeper Sharath K, who made good saves to prevent Dempo winning with bigger margin.
