Day 5 Rustomjee Go Green Cup: High on stamina, intensity and spirit!

Friday marks the start of the weekend for everyone, however at the Don Bosco Grounds, Matunga it denotes the start of the business end of the 5th edition of Rustomjee Go Green Cup hosted by Kenkre. The evening started off with thrilling action on the the two fields as well as on the turf for the younger ones. The under- 14’s were given a day’s break in order to gear up for the final encounter tomorrow.

Under- 17

The first semifinal in this section was played out between Parasites and Orange Bleeders. In the first half, Parasites attempted for the goal on four occasions but failed to yield anything out of it and both the teams went into the break with a goal less score line. In the second half, both teams played attacking football as they searched for a goal, with one powerful Parasite attempt hitting the keeper’s chest while in the other half, a Bleeder’ shot was saved by the rival custodian. Eventually, the fate of the game rested on penalties and the Parasites were bang on target to win it, both while saving and scoring.

In the other semifinal , the K- Blues won their battle against SSBM FC. Shubham and Alister put the ball in the back of the nets for the Kenkre team as they now prepare to meet the Parasites in the Saturday final.

Under- 12

The climax contest in this category was the quarterfinal clash of Tridents v/s Bandra Stars. A tough knockout match, it was entertaining and gripping with two golden opportunities for the Bandra boys. The first on the 17th minute was denied due to some superb defending as the keeper fumbled while the second shot came in on the 20th minute as the ball ran just wide of the right post.

With the scores level at full time, penalties were to decided the further course but they proved to be ineffective as well as both teams scored all five.

Unlucky personified, is what Bandra Stars would have felt as they eventually lost a hard fought clash on the basis of a toss as Tridents progressed into the semi finals.

Joshua who was on the run got a superb strike in for goal on the 6th minute and scored again on the 8th minute leaving the keeper clueless. The Stallions went into the break 4 goals down.

The Lions taking on Scottish United was an interesting match combined with strong parental cheering from the sidelines. The Lions were clearly the dominating force especially their winger Agastya Bhat who scored a hat trick to hand the Scottish team a 3-0 defeat.

The first goal came off a penalty awarded for a hand ball on the 5th minute. Then in the 7th minute, Agastya shot from the right flank directly into the bottom left corner to go up 2-0 before half time. After the break, Agastya put in a long ranger on a free kick straight into the goal giving no chance whatsoever to the defense, keeper as well his own team mates for the victory!
