Division-I MSSA Inter-school football: Don Bosco and Arya Mandir emerged as winnersJuly 30, 2019, Mumbai, Pune
Don Bosco (Matunga) and Arya Vidya Mandir (Juhu) emerged the boys and girls champions respectively in the U-16 Division-I MSSA inter-school football tournament at Cooperage yesterday. Don Bosco were authoritative in their 2-0 win over Bombay Scottish (Mahim) in the summit clash.
The Matunga lads finished with an envious all-win season record while goalkeeper Chris Johnson held the distinction of not conceding a single goal in the tournament. The Bosco boys dished out a slick attacking show with midfielders Ninad Kamble and Vedant Sawant working tirelessly to create openings for the forwards and putting the Scottish defence under pressure. Don Bosco opened the scoring when Keith Fernandes swooped in from behind a defender to tap home Ninad’s low centre from the right in the 12th minute. After the change of ends (49th min), skipper Shriharsh Palli doubled the lead when tapped in a Scott Rodrigues-flag kick.
Meanwhile, in the girls final, AVM (Juhu) showed rallied to overcome MIG School (Borivli) 3-1.
