Don Bosco almost scored in the 19th minute where a striker from Necil Pinto hit Calangute’s Dominic Fernandes which in turn hit the crossbar.
Finally Calangute colts broke the deadlock in the 31st minute, where Runal Shirodkar set up Dominic who scored with an adroit placement, 1-0.
On crossing over Don Bosco missed a glorious opportunity to level terms as Necil Pinto failed to guide the ball into the goal after Cayen Araujo had done the spadework.
In the 46th minute Calangute doubled their lead with Namresh Kundaikar placing the ball into the nets off a cross from Vichal Vaigankar, 2-0.
Playmaker and top scorer for Calangute colts Aiken Dias scored through free kick from the left flank past Don Bosco keeper, 3-0.
