Cambridge School (Kandivli) reasserted their dominance over St Joseph’s HS (Wadala) with a 1-0 win in the semi-finals of the boys’ U-16 Ahmed Sailor MSSA inter-school football tournament at Cooperage on Tuesday. Earlier this month, the Kandivli boys had beaten St Joseph’s 3-0 to emerge MSSA Division-II champions.


In an evenly contested encounter, Cambridge School took the early lead when striker Neel Shah found the back of the net in the fifth minute. The Cambridge boys then held on to the slender advantage. They await the winners of the second semi-final, between Don Bosco (Matunga) and Gokuldham (Goregaon).
