The spectacle captivated both spectators and officials, who marveled at the raw talent on display.

"They are embarking on their football journey, thanks to MSSA for nurturing their passion," expressed one grateful parent.

Following a goalless first half dominated by mid-field battles, Aman Kothari's decisive strike in the 22nd minute clinched victory for his team.

In the third-place playoff, Dhirubhai Ambani International School secured victory with a lone goal, courtesy of Yuvaan Parekh in the 9th minute, assisted by Taimur Ali Khan, son of Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan.
