Mumbai: St Gonsalo Garcia Parish, Vasai emerged champions clinching the Victor D’Mello Trophy by winning the Men’s Open final in the Willingdon Catholic Gymkhana organised 31st WCG Inter-Parish 5-a-side Rink Football Tournament. The Vasai Parish played with plenty of grit and determination and managed to snatch a tight 3-2 win against Immaculate Conception Parish, Borivali in an absorbing and fast-paced encounter and played at the Gymkhana’s floodlit tennis courts.

In a keenly contested summit clash, Gonsalo Garcia and Immaculate Conception outfits were engaged in a grim battle for supremacy and there was not much to separate between the two teams. Both sided were on the offensive from the start and the match swung like a pendulum from one end to the other as both sides created plenty of goal-scoring chances.

However, the Vasai side did well to capitalise of their chances and their opportunistic and dashing striker Royston Veigas led their chare to victory by scoring twice while Rakshit Pillai netted one to secure their win. Calvin Pereira struck both the goals for the Borivali parish.
