The school u-16 football team is enjoying a dream run this season. In a space of a couple of days they have added another two titles to their kitty overwhelming their rivals in the finals of the two tournaments. Earlier this season, they had annexed the First Division MSSA u-16 title defeating St. Stanislaus. The talented football team have made light of their opposition in the run-up to the finals, and humbled the rivals in the finals too.

In the finals of the Ahmed Sailor u-16 inter-school football tournament held earlier this week, they swept aside the challenge of Jamnabai Narsee in the finals riding on the brace of their ace striker Mannan Dang. The final score of the game 2-0 doesn’t reflect the dominance of this crack outfit over their rivals in the match. And to prove that they are a notch above the other school teams in Mumbai and the zone that extends up to Navi Mumbai, our school u-16 team outplayed Hiranandani school 3-1 in the finals of the DSO organized football tournament.  The finals were played at Fr. Agnel’s ground, Vashi on 20th Oct 2016.

The three titles for the u-16 football team this season has been a perfect and fitting gift to their unassuming and hardworking mentor and coach, Mr. Leslie Machado who completes 25 years of coaching at Don Bosco High School, Matunga. That’s a perfect icing on the cake for a stint that will long be remembered for dedication, belief and hard work!

Take a bow Sir Leslie!

Congratulations to the players!
