PANJIM: Salgaocar Football Club went down to Pune FC 2-3 while first-timers Sesa Football Academy were handed a 2-1 defeat by Tata Football Academy in the final round of Under-20 I-League match in Jamshedpur, Monday.

Pune succeeded in taking the lead on the other side of the break with L William scoring. The lead was extended further by Nikhil Kadam in the 60th minute to make it 3-1.
Salgaocar tried hard but couldn't find the net until a 85th minute strike from Melwin Fernandes to reduce the margin.
In another match, Sesa went down to Tata Football Academy 2-1. Sesa surged ahead through in-form striker Mauvin Borges in the 66th minute
through a classy right footer from top of the 30-yard box, which left the TFA defenders and the goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh hapless.
But they could not maintain the lead as referee P Moses awarded TFA a penalty as a Sesa player handled the ball inside the box in the 76th minute. Striker K Udanta Singh converted it. Later, Baidyanath Das extended the lead through a header in the 83rd minute
