MSSA U-16 Division: Arjun & Batra’s strike sinks Hiranandani SchoolAugust 20, 2019, Mumbai, Pune
Arjun Asudani, 14, and Rohaan Batra, 15, exhibited clinical finishing to score a goal each in guiding Dhirubhai Ambani International School (Bandra-Kurla Complex) to a 2-0 win against Hiranandani Foundation School (Powai) in the boys U-16 Division-III final of the MSSA inter-school football tournament at the Neville D’Souza ground in Bandra on 19th August.
A dominant Dhirubhai Ambani school looked compact and solid in every aspect and created better chances, but failed to land the knockout punch initially as the Hiranandani lads did well to put up a spirited fight.
But towards the end, they seemed to tire a bit and the Dhirubhai Ambani attackers exploited the situation to hit the target twice and emerge victorious. In the 35th minute, Arjun trapped Anirudh Fadia’s long forward punt and dribbled past a defender before unleashing a powerful shot from the edge of the penalty area.
Hiranandani goalkeeper Shaurya Mittal, who had made two saves, made a valiant diving effort but could only get his fingertips to the ball before it flew into the net.
