Prisha Patel on the prowl for Bombay International

Prisha Patel


Prisha Patel, 10, played with plenty of verve and vigour and worked tirelessly in both attack and defence. Her twin strikes from long solo efforts were instrumental in Bombay International School’s (Babulnath) fluent 2-0 victory over Dhirubhai Ambani International School (BKC) in a girls’ U-12 quarter-final match of the MSSA inter-school football tournament at Azad Maidan on Thursday. 


Prisha displayed excellent dribbling skills and her ball control was seen all over the ground. With dashing runs, she spearheaded the team’s attack, and when the rivals had ball possession, she was quick to fall back to support the defence and ensured her school came out victorious. Prisha, who had earlier scored nine goals in the school’s 13-0 win over Rustomjee Cambridge School (Dahisar), has now accumulated 11 goals from three matches.

Scottish, Cathedral win

Earlier, Bombay Scottish (Mahim) and Cathedral & John Connon (Fort) scored contrasting victories to advance into the semi-finals. Scottish eked out a narrow 1-0 against Don Bosco International (Matunga) with Noopor Sonthalia scoring the winning goal. In contrast, opportunistic goal-scorer Anasuya Raju scored all the four goals as Cathedral blanked JBCN International School (Borivli) 4-0.

In the first match, Smt RSB Arya Vidya Mandir (Juhu) prevailed over Arya Vidya Mandir (Bandra) 3-0 via the tie-breaker after the match ended in a 1-1 draw. The Juhu girls took the lead through Alysa Hora’s strike, but the Bandra schoolgirls immediately equalised through Myraah Soniminde’s goal. In the tie-breaker, the Juhu school converted through Alysa, Anika Taneja and Avika Tatke, while AVM Bandra failed to convert a single penalty.

St Mary’s emerge victorious

Meanwhile, in a boys’ under-12 quarter-final encounter, St Mary’s SSC (Mazagaon) capitalised on the chances that came their way to hand arch-rivals Campion School (Cooperage) a 2-0 defeat. 

Zakariya Motiwala scored the opening goal in the sixth minute and Elijah Monteiro tapped in from close the second in the final minute.

Later, Stanislaus HS (Bandra) showed great courage and solid determination to knock out fancied Cathedral & John Connon (Fort), pulling off a 4-3 tie-breaker victory after both teams failed to score in normal time. 

St Stanislaus successfully converted four attempts through Advait Parab, Daiyaan Shaikh, Bhargav Dabke and Ehsaan Ansari, while Cathedral scored three with Anaai D’Souza, Aarish Sanghvi and Arjun Vijay managing to beat the rival goalkeeper.
