Jamnabai Narsee (Juhu) eked out a 1-0 win against Holy Family (Andheri) in a boys' U-14 Division-II semi-final of the MSSA inter-school football tournament at Cooperage yesterday.

Striker Arhaan Mohla scored the all-important goal (31st minute). Holy Family enjoyed more of the ball possession and dominated play but lacked coordination inside the rival territory and failed to convert their chances.

Jamnabai's defenders, meanwhile, were dogged as they frustrated the Holy Family attackers. Jamnabai's forwards could only manage a couple of stray counter-attacks and off one such move, they got their goal. Arhaan swooped in on a dipping cross from the left by Vivean Prabhu to net the winner.

Later, St Mary's SSC (Mazagaon) rallied from a goal down to beat RN Podar International (Santacruz) 5-2.

St Mary's Lyle Nunes netted a brace, while teammates Dharamraj Pardeshi, Anwar Ansari and Sarvesh Mane added one each. Podar scored through Jaden Jimmy and Vissav Garg.
