Mumbai: St Lawrence High School, Kandivali has an easy outing against Greenlawn's High School as they pumped in four goals against none, in Group A match of the MSSA organised Ahmed Sailor boys under-16 football at the Cooperage Ground, Colaba here on Tuesday.
It was a keenly contested encounter with the teams having equal exchange in the first session of the tie. Lawrence did have a slight edge as they found the net once in the first half of the match. It was Yasir Shaikh who gave them take the break on a happy note, which happened in the 16th minute of play.
But, the break saw the Kandivali enter the field to renewed vigour as they went about in their mission, and Aftab Khan doubled their lead nodding home Nayan Patil’s free-kick in the 28th minute. This goal put the Greenlawn on the backfoot, and as their defending trying to avert danger to their goal handled the ball and Jay Gosalkar converted from spot-kick. With seven minutes for the final whistle Jyotin Newalkar assured their stay alive in the championship.
