Diário Digital Castelo Branco – Taa de Portugal: Sporting da Covilh eliminates Idanhense with goals from Helito and Devid
The two teams from the district of Castelo Branco played an unbalanced first half, with the Serranos, who have had five games without a win, dominating the match, having possession of the ball, showing pressure and shooting, and creating several occasions for to mark .
Ricardo Vaz was the first to threaten the borderline goal, but Michel grabbed it. Medeiros also shot low, from a distance, and on 11 minutes the ‘lions of the mountain’ took the lead, with a well-placed header from central Helitão, in response to a corner taken by Ricardo Vaz.
On minute 16, Diogo Almeida spun in the area and shot, but the Idanhense keeper saved. In the following minute, the Serrano forward headed strong with his back to the goal and forced Michel to dodge over the bar. A little later, Vilela took a head-first shot. At 26 minutes, in a counterattack, Ricardo Vaz was lost and shot over the trip.
Despite having gone up the lines and trying to react, the lane team bumped into the defensive cohesion of the formation led by Wender.
In the second half, Idanhense proved to be tougher, although it was Covilhã who created a new opportunity to extend the score, when Diogo Almeida, isolated, shot over the bar. Helitão and Medeiros, with their heads, also scared and Devid, in the 71st minute, once again highlighted the lack of efficiency in the mountains.
In the last minutes the Raianos acted more aggressive and combative, but ended up not creating any flagrant opportunity and it was Covilhã, already in added time, to increase the count, with a ‘hat’ from Devid Silva to Michel.
After having happened to Marinhense (2-1) in the first round of the competition, Idanhense was eliminated from the Portuguese Cup, while Sporting da Covilhã moves on to the next stage.
