Portugal round-up: Sporting march on

Sporting Clube de Portugal enhanced their I.Divisão title hopes with a 2-0 win at CS Marítimo in Saturday’s round 13 game.

Sporting Clube de Portugal enhanced their I.Divisão title hopes with a 2-0 win at CS Marítimo in Saturday’s round 13 game.

Superb solo effort
After a goalless first half, Jardel put Sporting into a 60th minute lead from the penalty spot after João Pinto was tripped in the area by Briguel. Four minutes later Marítimo were reduced to ten men after Daniel Kenedy was dismissed and Pedro Barbosa, a substitute for João Pinto, completed the scoring after 79 minutes with a superb solo effort, charging up the left-wing to finish from an acute angle with his team-mates expecting a cross.

Costly miss
In the night's other game, SC Salgueirios dented Boavista FC’s title hopes after a late goal earned them a 1-1 draw with their Porto rivals at the Bessa stadium. A push on Brazilian striker Márcio Santos by his fellow countryman Emerson gave Boavista a 15th-minute penalty which Erwin Sanchez converted, but Márcio Santos’s failure to add a second goal from a Joaquim Silva cross 20 minutes later was to prove costly.

Close range
With eight minutes to go, Salgueirios stunned their neighbours with an equaliser after Boavista failed to effectively clear a free-kick. After two shots had rebounded in the area, Angolan striker Toy received the ball a few yards from goal and stabbed it past the home side’s Cameroonian goalkeeper William Andem. Toy almost snatched a winner in the second minute of injury time but Andem dived well to save.
