Football Time! PVC Parra vs Candolim SC

It has been a couple of years since I stopped keeping goal for PVC Parra. I had to take up a job at Google, in Hyderabad. With that went my numero uno shirt and I am not confined to a nice cubicle punching away at the keyboard and clicking the mouse like a madman while I churned away data and wrote some code.

I picked up my flimsy Canon 1000D and decided to capture some photos of my good 'ol team in action without me under that goal post for a change. We headed off to the Dr. Gustavo Monteiro stadium in Candolim. One of my favorite grounds in Goa. Favorite because it is one of the few grounds that have a decent playing surface, unlike most of the hard mud grounds that we play on otherwise. Favorite also because I had some of my best performances here.

Here are a few photos captured from the second half onward. Our strikers missed a ton of chances (as usual) and we landed up losing 0-1 that evening.
