St Stanislaus (Bandra) boys failed to take advantage of playing in home conditions. Both, the St Stanislaus boys’ under-12 and under-10 teams suffered defeats against arch-rivals Don Bosco HS (Matunga) in the MSSA inter-school hockey tournament at the St Stanislaus High School ground recently. 

Samarth scores winner

In the boys’ under-12 final, Don Bosco ‘A’, riding on Samarth Singh’s crucial second half goal, recorded a narrow 1-0 win against St Stanislaus to lift the Walter D’Souza Trophy.

Earlier, in the boys’ under-10 title clash, Don Bosco ‘A’ powered by the brilliant twin strikes from Tanish Pednekar scored an authoritative 3-0 win against the St Stanislaus lads to win The Oliver Andrade Trophy. Arjun Pawar scored the opening goal.
