Showing good understanding and excellent teamwork Catholic Gymkhana recorded a convincing 3-0 victory against a spirited Regal FC in a Second Division match of the Mumbai District Football Association (MFA) League 2023-2024 and played at the Air India Colony Ground, Kalina on Tuesday.

Diminutive left winger Kastubh Meher played a stellar role scoring two goals, one in each half, while Catholic Gymkhana captain Mohit Chandiramani fired home the third with a rasping long range effort.

This was Catholic Gymkhana’s second consecutive win in Group-C. They had earlier defeated Sanpada - Mumbai Ultras 2-0 in the opening match last week.

Catholic Gymkhana got off to a rousing start and rocked the Regal FC goal when Kastubh trapped a pass from the right and then coolly lobbed over the Regal goalkeeper Ankit Nejani in the very third minute.

Regal CC tried to fight back but Catholic Gymkhana continued to call the shots as did the bulk of the attacking but missed a couple of easy chances and failed to add to the scoreboard.

After the change of ends, Catholic Gymkhana maintained the momentum and after wasting at least three clear scoring opportunities finally managed to double the lead. Kastubh showed good presence of mind to deftly chip the ball into an open goal. Regal goalkeeper Nejani rushed out of his box to tackle Catholic Gymkhana’s Chaitnaya Gund but the ball came to Kustubh who made no mistake in dispatching the ball home from 30-yards out midway through the second session.

Later, Chandiramani after a solo run down the middle unleashed a rasping shot from the top of the box and beat goalkeeper Nejani who made a valiant effort to make a save.

Earlier, Rising Sun FC riding on Abdul Karim Khan’s lone striker defeated Strangerz FC 1-0 in a match of the same division.
