School u-14 Hockey team dons the MSSA champions title!
-Mr. Barrington Serrao
The victory for our u-14 hockey team couldn’t have come at a better time and an apt occasion. The finals played on the hockey grounds of St. Stanislaus High School, Bandra on 1st Feb 2019 attracted hockey greats and the game’s aficionados. Six former hockey Olympians and India players graced the occasion-MM Somaya, Dhanraj Pillay, Joaquim Carvalho, Marcellus Gomes, Merwyn Fernandes and Edgar Mascarenhas. The victory 2-1 achieved by our boys against St. Stanislaus, Bandra was rewarding and sweet since it was on the opponents’ home turf.
The final was worthy of the moment with riveting moves and excellent skills displayed by both the teams. MM Somaya summed it up thus (Hindustan Times, Sat 02 Feb 2019): “This match, between Stanislaus and Bosco, right from the time when were in school many decades ago, was usually the (fixture for the) final. It feels good, and MSSA has sort of been the grooming ground for various disciplines. From the boys’ team, I feel at least three to four players are good enough to later play at a higher level.”
Congratulations to our boys, their coaches Javed and Datta, the school management and the parents!
