Sports-Hockey u-12 A team retains late Olympian Walter D’Souza trophy; podium finish for basketball and hockey teams
-Mr. Barrington Serrao
It was yet another story of ‘so near, yet so far’ for our teams in hockey and basketball. While the u-12 hockey A team avenged its defeat in the earlier finals against St. Stanislaus school, Bandra in the MSSA conducted tournament, to retain the late Olympian Walter D’Souza trophy, it was a heartbreak for our u-11 basketball A team and the u-10 hockey A team in finals of their respective tournaments.
Displaying tremendous skill and determination, our school u-12 A team retained the late Olympian Walter D’Souza trophy defeating St. Stanislaus High School, Bandra 2-1 in the finals of the MSSA conducted tournament. The finals were played at St. Stanislaus grounds, Bandra on 20 Feb 2019. In the same tournament our school B team clinched the third place defeating St. Dominic Savio Andheri via the tie-breaker.
In the u-10 category of the MSSA conducted tournament for the Oliver Andrade trophy, the school u-10 A team secured the second place losing 2-0 to St. Stanislaus school, Bandra in the finals played on 18 Feb 2019 at St. Stanislaus grounds, Bandra. The B team secured the 4th place in the same tournament.
In basketball, it was a see-saw battle between two arch rivals and neighbouring institutions. The school u-11 basketball A team lost a close final to St. Joseph’s High School, Wadala in a game of fluctuating fortunes till the final whistle. The boys lost 13-14 in the finals played at Azad Maidan basketball court on 20 Feb 2019.
We congratulate our teams, their coaches and their parents!
