"Playing football with your feet is one thing, playing football with your heart is the real deal."
On May 27th 2018, eleven teams participated in a 5 - A- Side Football tournament organized by our very own Karnataka Goan Association. Leading the teams from the front with their enthusiasm was the spirited team consisting of the KGA Managing Committee.
The youth representatives Idalina Smith and Denzil Robert Pereira did a marvelous job with the logistics and organization of the event. The audience in attendance witnessed the game played with full dedication, skill and above all the right sportsman spirit. What was amazing to watch was each move being cheered by the audience and cheerleaders - Charmaine Ferns, Deanne, Lia de Souza, Lian, Scarlett Guido and Little Eva. While it did not rain, there was surely a shower of goals.
No event is complete without food which was organized by Venancio Costa who needs to be applauded for the authentic Goan snacks. The enthralling tournament was won by Floyd and team and their lady player/ Representative Ms. Scindia put on a fabulous performance with the ball. The runners up were Darryl De Nazareth and team. Both the teams were awarded certificates, trophies and a cash prize.
