Midfielder-turned-goalkeeper Rithvik Punja's heroics helped last year's runners-up Don Bosco (Matunga) beat Colaba Municipal 3-2 via tie-breaker to lift the Mumbai Schools Sports Association's U-17 Ahmed Sailor Cup at Azad Maidan on Saturday.

After both teams failed to score in regulation time, Punja replaced regular custodian Aaron Koli for the shootout and effected three saves (Colaba Municipal’s Deepak Kannajiya, Mandar Kamble & Aakash Rathod) even as Keanu D’Souza, Nathan Fernandes and Vikrant Belwalkar found the target for Don Bosco.
