Kenkre FC U-12 Boys Emerged As MDFA Youth League Champions!
Kenkre FC is extremely proud to announce that the young lads in the U-12 Boys category in Mumbai District Football Association (MDFA) have emerged as the champions in the MDFA Youth League.
The boys faced off against India Rush Soccer at the Bombay Gymkhana in a 5pm kickoff at the lush green ground in Southern Mumbai. The stage was set for a showdown and the game lived up to the promise that comes with a final match.
The two sides were engrossed in a neck to neck battle throughout the match with chances created on both the ends of the pitch. Kenkre U-12s came into the match on the back of zero goals conceded in the tournament and were keen to keep that stat intact. Goalkeeper Aryaman Bengani thwarted off any attacks by the opponents India Rush Soccer.
The match ended in a 0-0 score at the end of the final whistle as the dreaded penalty shootout loomed to decide the winner of the MDFA Youth League.
Kenkre's Shaurya Bafna took the first spot-kick but missed the target but keeper Aryaman continued his great form between the sticks as he saved the first kick. Vignesh Shetty, Rayaan Pochkhanvala and Dhwaj Ranawat held their calm under the pressure and Aryaman produced two more saves as Kenkre wrapped up the title with a 3-0 win in the shootout.
Mr. Sachin Panchal, the coach of the U-12 side spoke highly of the young boys and their win in the league, "The league gave great exposure to the boys. The boys played really well throughout the tournament and I am very happy with their performance."
