MSSA Edge Out Kenkre FC In A Close Encounter In The MDFA Youth League Final
Kenkre FC emerged as the runners up in the U-14 MDFA Youth League as Mumbai School Sports Association (MSSA) won with a 1-0 score in a closely contested affair.
The final match was contested at the St. Xavier's Ground in Parel in an early evening kickoff. The match lived up to the promise of a final clash and was neck to neck from the kickoff.
The boys from Kenkre attacked with convention as they kept looking for holes in the MSSA defence with their free flowing play in the middle of the park. The first half of the match ended with both teams on equal terms at 0-0.
The second half began on a similar note with both sides going all out for breaking the deadlock in the match. MSSA opened their scoring in the second half in a rare defensive lapse by the Kenkre boys. MSSA held on to the solitary goal lead till the end to clinch the title in the MDFA Youth League.
Kenkre U-14 coach Mr. Patrick Perreira appreciated the efforts of the young lads, "The boys played really well and everyone gave more than I expected. I am really happy for the team for their run in the tournament. We need to work more hard and will win next time for sure."
