Our football teams crowned champions!
Our school u-16 and u-14 football teams have yet again proved their class and stamped their authority on the MSSA and DSO organized inter-school sports tournaments. In the finals of the MSSA organized u-16 Div I football tournament played on 8th Aug 2017, our boys regained the trophy that sets aside the champion side in the city. The finals played on the Astroturf at Cooperage witnessed a classy display in the second half from our boys after a shoddy first half to brush aside the challenge of Campion School, Colaba 3-0. With their spirited display, master class and sheer determination, our boys beat the heat and won the hearts of all present on the ground – parents, past pupils and football fans.
On the same day, 8th Aug 2017, our u-14 football team were making waves at distant Fr. Agnel’s, Vashi in the DSO organized Subroto football tournament. The team won the district championship defeating sister concern Dominic Savio, Andheri via the tie breaker, and now travel to Pune for the State championship.
Our school teams make the games and the wins look easy – but it is far from the truth. With a growing number of entries of schools – state board, ICSE, CBSE and International – and the increasing competition, our coaches and boys have to put in that extra bit of hard work, training and sacrifice. Commendable work from our coaches Leslie and Pillai, our students, and more so our parents! Congratulations!
