Duler (Goa): Dempo posted a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Sporting Clube de Goa in the 11th ONGC National Football League here on Thursday.
Dempo now has six points from three matches, while Sporting Clube remained on one point from the same number of matches.
Sporting Clube's Dudu Omagbemi set up Joseph Pereira outside the box and the latter cut past defender John Dias before sending a stiff left-footer to beat goalkeeper Satish Kumar in the 11th minute.
Two minutes later, Dudu increased the lead. Nicholas Rodrigues from the left flank sent a cross to Dudu who chested the ball and volleyed home.
Durand Cup champion Dempo took time to settle down and slowly found its rhythm, reducing the margin in the 35th minute. Defender Bolaji Mejek sent a long cross from the right which Sporting Clube's Jeremiah failed to intercept. Clifford Miranda received the ball and found Ranty Martins, who beat Sporting Clube custodian Felix with a fine placement.
In the 65th minute, Roberto Mendes da Silva converted a free-kick to restore parity and in the 78th minute Martins scored his second goal to get Dempo's match-winner. PTI
