Municipal School down Hiranandani 2-0 in Div III semis of MSSA
Colaba Municipal School beat Hiranandani (Powai) 2-0 to enter the Div III final of the Mumbai Schools Sports Association (MSSA) U-16 inter-school football tournament at Azad Maidan yesterday.
This win secured promotion to Div II for the Colaba outfit, who will take on St Xavier’s (Bhandup) in the final later this week.
The gritty Colaba lads, who hail from various slums around Badhwar Park, Ambedkar Nagar, BMC Chawl, Dhobhi Ghat etc, have been improving by leaps and bounds after making their Div IV debut last season.
Satish Gawane gave Colaba the lead in the 18th minute with a swerving volley, while defender Vishal Bhalerao sealed the victory with a stunning solo effort in the dying moments.
