City level phase of Subroto Cup: St Vincent’s grab both Under-17 and Under-14 titlesAugust 5, 2019, Pune
St Vincent’s High School beat The Bishop’s School, Camp, in both (U-14 and U-17) to seal the finals of city-level phase of Subroto Cup 2019 at the SSPMS Ground on Saturday. Both the games required penalties to decide the winner.
In the U-17 category, Vincent’s reached the final after beating Vidya Bhavan convincingly. The team scored five past Vidya Bhavan, without conceding a single goal to face Bishop’s, who had beaten Lexicon School 2-0 in the other semi-final. The SSPMS ground was slimy and mucky, especially in front of goalposts. Many efforts on goal, which were hit low, stopped even before they reached the goal-line. After full time and the score line of 1-1, no extra-time was held and the game went into penalties. St Vincent’s converted their first three penalties, while the Bishop’s could only convert one.
Earlier, in the U-14 category, St Vincent’s High School and The Bishop’s School were finalists. The game went into a penalty shoot-out as well, after the scores were tied 1-1 after the full-time whistle. St Vincent’s won this game too, winning 4-1 in the shoot-out.
