TT Nationals: Assam girls prevails over J&K, cruises into R4December 4, 2019, Jammu
Formidable Assam defeated Jammu and Kashmir in junior girls Round-3, while PSPBA got the better of J&K in 3rd round of junior boys in the ongoing 81st UTT Junior, Youth Nationals at Indoor Complex, MA Stadium in Jammu, Today.
Both Assam and PSPBA scripted (3-0) wins over the host teams.
Meanwhile, it won’t be a cakewalk for both Maharashtra A and Uttar Pradesh, the top two seeds, as they are expected to meet some of the hot contenders in each of their halves during the second stage in the 81st UTT Junior and Youth Nationals at the Indoor Hall of the MA Stadium.
Maharashtra girls, the title holders, placed in the top half can have a smooth passage up to the semi-final but could run into a rough weather if they happen to clash either Tamil Nadu or the winners of Karnataka and Maharashtra B teams. The open draw taken after the completion of group engagements suggest the top-seeded team would have to work really hard to go past the semi-final stage.
