Defending champions Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Vidya Mandir (Borivli) played like a well-oiled machine and smoothly got past Pawar Public School (Bhandup), winning by a 12-2 margin in a boys' U-16 semi-final match of the MSSA-organised inter-school handball championship at Azad Maidan yesterday.
The Borivli schoolboys were well-organised in every department and displayed excellent teamwork to unsettle the opposition defence and they repeatedly hit the target to race away to victory.
SSRSVM skipper Vedant Kesarkar led by example by scoring three goals. He received support from Hate Dedhia and Gautam Wasnik, both scoring four and three goals respectively to knock the fight out of the Bhandup side. Aditya Ghaisas and Anjania netted a goal each to seal the win.
