Shaheen hits backSeptember 18, 2017
Shaheen School (Dhaka) overcame its huge loss a day earlier to bounce back and register a thumping 6-1 win against Coast Guard Public School (Daman & Diu), while Sainik Awasiya Mahavidyalaya (Nepal) beat Hiramani HSS (Ahmedabad) 5-1 on a day of big margins in the under-17 boys’ competition of the 58th Subroto Cup football tournament on Sunday.
Both sides began tentatively, trying to gauge the opposition, before the Bangladesh side went on the attack. Shafiqul Islam opened the scoring in the 14th minute and soon doubled the lead. Shafikat and Mynul scored two each to round off the tally.
In the evening session, Uttam Shahi’s hat-trick — in as many minutes — capped Nepal’s dominant performance against the Ahmedabad team. Elsewhere, Y. Kishan struck four successive goals as Afros HSS (Manipur) blanked Air Force Bal Bharti School (Delhi) 6-0.
The results: Shaheen School (Dhaka) 6 (Safiqul Islam 2, Safikat 2, Mynul 2) bt Coast Guard Pubic School (Daman & Diu) 1 (Jitesh);
