DB Matunga u-14 Football team – State Champions!

-Mr. Barrington Serrao

The Don Bosco Matunga school football teams have made it three titles in a row in as many tournaments to begin the new football season on a dominating note. Our boys are no strangers to the winning tradition having grown up in a culture of performers. In fact, every time our boys take the field, they are expected to win, and win big! It’s noteworthy that our boys have worked hard to ward off such pressures and win hearts and tournaments.

The school u-14 football team emerged Maharashtra state champions defeating Kolhapur 1-0 in the Division finals played at Balewadi, Pune on 12th Aug 2017. The team has thus qualified for the Nationals to be played in Delhi in the coming month. A few days earlier, on 8th Aug, the u-16 A team trounced Campion school, Colaba 3-0 in the finals played at Cooperage stadium to help regain the Division I title in the MSSA organized tournament.

Close on the heels of this victory by their counterparts, the u-16 ‘B’ team won the 3rd place in the II Division of the MSSA organized inter-school tournament beating St. Lawrence (Borivali) 2-1 in the 3rd place playoff match at Cooperage ground- Churchgate on 8th Aug 2017.
