Jamnabai Narsee School (Juhu) and Lakshdham School (Goregaon) played out a goalless draw in an evenly matched Group B girls’ U-16 Division-I league match of the MSSA inter-school football tournament at the Cooperage, Churchgate, on Thursday.


Although the Juhu girls did the bulk of the attacking they were unable to create clear goal-scoring opportunities, while Lakshdham School, from a couple of counter-attacks managed to breach the Jamnabai defence, but were unable to break the deadlock.

In another match of the same group, Dhirubhai Ambani International School (BKC) defeated Apostolic Carmel School (Bandra) 3-0. Striker Tithi Agrawal scored two goals (10th and 30th minutes) after Navya Dholakia had scored the first goal in the seventh minute.

Apostolic Carmel custodian Vaibhavi Parmar suffered an asthma attack soon after the final whistle and collapsed to the ground. Vaibhavi had not carried her medication including the inhaler, but after receiving medical attention from the physio present on the ground she recovered and the school coach Cosmos Vaz on the mother’s advice took her safely home.

Earlier, consistent goal-scorer Riana Saraiya struck the lone goal as The Cathedral & John Connon (Fort) defeated Bai Avabai Framji Petit (Bandra) 1-0 in a Group A league match.
