Subroto Cup: Meghalaya and Manipur schools enter final

New Delhi, Oct 12 (IANS) OM Roy High School, Shillong, Meghalaya entered the U-17 Boys' final while RMSM Vidhyalaya, Nambol, Manipur secured a spot in the girls' title clash in the 54th Subroto Cup football at the Ambedkar Stadium here on Saturday.

While boys from Meghalaya shot down Army Boys, Danapur, Bihar 3-0; RMSM Vidhyalaya, Nambol, Manipur girls romped home to a 5-1 victory over Reverend Saiaithanga Memorial School, Aizawl, Mizoram.

Although Meghalaya boys teams have won the U-17 title in earlier editions, this is the first time that this particular school team will appear in the title clash. The clash between Army Boys and Meghalaya was an exciting, fast paced one. Both teams were equally matched although the taller, stronger Army Boys enjoyed considerable physical advantage over the smaller but quicker Meghalaya players.

However, Meghalaya's superior fitness saw them through as they pumped in three goals in the second session.

In the girls' section, RMSM Vidhyalaya booked a spot in the final with an easy 5-1 win over Reverend Saiaithanga Memorial School. The girls from Manipur did not face too much trouble from their rivals and a hat-trick from D Grace in the first half and another couple of goals by Ratanbala Devi after the break were enough to see them through.
