Daksh Sojitra shines for DY Patil

Mumbai: Daksh Sojitra mesmerized the opponents slamming six goals (double hat-trick) propelling DY Patil International, Worli to a handsome 7-0 win over Podar International Powai in a MSSA boys under-16 Football Division IV Inter-School Football Tournament played at the Neville D’Souza Turf, Bandra here on Tuesday.

The 15-year-old Daksh, showed his brilliance when he scored a screamer from inside the box to open the flood gates. The lanky lad with big-game experience having donned the colours of Kenkre FC in I-League went about scoring as completed his three-in-row in the first session of the match.

There was a slight lull as the teams reassembled after the break. That was just a lull before the storm as Daksh was back in thick of action scoring three goals in a span of three minutes.

Daksh who opened his schools campaign in contests with a hat trick against Cardinal Gracious School, came back to round up the assault this time in assisting Aarav Shroff rounding up the tally.

In the Girls U-16 Div IV match, Dipti Varma's brace helped St Thomas Academy secure a 2-0 victory over RN Podar School and advance to the knockout stages.
