MSSA: Mazagaon school cliches U-12 titleOctober 23, 2019, Mumbai
St Mary’s ICSE (Mazagaon) and Cathedral & John Connon (Fort) played to their full potential and battled for supremacy in an engrossing summit clash.
However, the St Mary’s lads did well and managed to capitalise on their chances, scoring once in each half to carve out a deserving 2-0 win over Cathedral in the MSSA Cup boys’ under-12 final of the inter-school football tournament, at Azad Maidan, Mumbai.
St Mary’s wrested the advantage in the seventh minute when Aman Khan’s snapshot from the right side of the box hit the far uptight and went into the net to give his school an early lead.
Later, Cathedral were unfortunate to be denied a goal when Ramit Shorewala was ruled offside after he tapped in the rebound from St Mary’s goalkeeper Yuvan Kotecha, who had blocked Rayess
Surti’s free kick just before the break.
After switching ends, St Mary’s scored the second goal when Mahashwin Kumar scored with a long aerial shot to seal the win.
