Goan were not disheartened and they counter-attacked to
earn a penalty after Harmonjit Singh Kabra brought down Rafael Coelho inside the box and Joffre Gonzalez made no mistake as his left footer found the far corner of the net in the 21st minute.
The visitors were once again in the lead in the 28th minute through Dudu Omagbemi who, after receiving a through pass from Daniel Lalhimpuia, cut past onrushing keeper Kattimani and slotted the ball into the empty net to have Chennaiyin FC leading 3-2 at half time.
Goa brought in Tavora in place of Mandar Rao Desai after the break and they looked more enterprising in their attack as they kept rival keeper Karanjit Singh on his toes. After coming close on several occasion substitute Tavora equalised in the 68th minute.
Rafael Coelho then put Goa in the lead for the first time when he was put through by Trinade Goncalves as he beat rival keeper Karanjit Singh to find the back of the net in the 76th minute.
The visitors brought fresh pairs of legs by making a couple of changes and the move paid off as they equalised in the 88th minute after Goa defender Raju Gaikwad handled the ball inside the box off a throw-in by substitute John Riise who converted the penalty with a fierce shot.
But Goa had the last laugh when they scored the winner in the injury stoppage time through Tavora who cut past a rival defender on the left and essayed a shot which beat keeper Karanjit all ends up. PTI MCS PDS
