On the side board, Srujana smoothly sailed past Tanishka Save of JB Vachha High School (Dadar) who was unable to win a single board. Srujana was in terrific form and played with a high degree of accuracy to pocket the coins and did not give Tanishka any chances and quickly wrapped up the contest with a 25-0 verdict.

The girls’ under-14 final was also a one-sided affair as Shravani Manjrekar of IES VN Sule Guruji (Dadar) brushed aside the challenge from Suhani Pachanekar of IES Modern English School (Dadar) cruising to a 20-5 victory.

In contrast, the boys’ under-14 title round witnessed an absorbing tussle for supremacy between Avinash Ajgaonkar of Modern English School (Dadar) and Umar Shaikh of Mount Mary School (Goregaon). Avinash held his nerves and displayed more confidence to overcome Umar by a close 25-17 point margin to emerge victorious.
