Skipper Dhiti Varma led by example and exhibited her versatility and capabilities in great measure. She was instrumental in shaping the fortunes of St Thomas Academy (Goregaon) as they pulled off a remarkable win against Canossa Convent (Mahim) in the MSSA girls U-16 Div-II final at Cooperage yesterday.

The Goregaon schoolgirls snatched a tense 3-2 sudden death win after the match was locked goalless at the end of regulation time and 2-2 after the first set of five penalties each.

"It feels great because this is our maiden title. It's even more sweet for me as this is my last inter-school match," said Dhiti, 14, a Class X student.
