MSSA: Campion emerge as winners, defeats don Bosco in finalNovember 30, 2019, Mumbai
Dishing out another impressive combined performance Campion School (Cooperage) got the better of Don Bosco (Matunga) by a fighting 2-0 margin in a boys U-12 Division-I final of the MSSA inter-school football tournament at Azad Maidan in Mumbai.
The win saw Campion complete a hat-trick of titles, having pocketed the boys U-8 and U-10 MSSA Cup knockout crowns earlier in the season. The Campion lads wrested the advantage when their consistent goal-scorer Harsh Deora struck the opening goal in the ninth minute. Don Bosco tried to get a goal and find the equaliser, but had to go into the break trailing by 0-1 margin.
Having soaked in the pressure, Campion then doubled their lead when skipper and dead-ball specialist Kiaan Mistri scored from a direct free-kick in the dying moments of the match to seal their win and emerge champions.
Earlier, St Mary’s ICSE (Mazgaon) overcame Don Bosco (Borivli) 2-0 in the third-place match.
Rajwar Chowan scored the opening goal for the Mazagon lads before Mahaswin Kumar netted the second.
