Mumbai: Air India finally ended its winless stretch that extended for 10 games when it defeated Vasco SC, Goa 1-0 in the 20th round I-League football encounter here on Sunday.

The lone goal in the match, in which the first half was dull and drab with hardly any threatening move coming from either side, was scored by Subash Singh in the 67th minute, his seventh strike in the tournament. Singh was fed a headed pass by Nigerian striker Emmanuel Ovieghara and he left-footed the ball into the Vasco net. Ovieghara, had been fed in turn by a cross from the left by Gauranga Biswas.

The victory boosted AI’s point tally to 23, while Vasco remained on 10 points and at the bottom of the 12-team table. — PTI
