Mumbai 7-0 Osmanabad

Mumbai took on Osmanabad at Goans and comfortably registered a thumping 7-0 victory with five of the goals being scored in the second half.

Jyotika Singh could have opened the scoring for the host early in the game but her curling effort sailed wide off the right hand post. Few minutes later, Jyotika saw her powerful shot rattled the crossbar which gave Osmanabad a huge relief.

Mumbai’s Juhi Shah then scored a brilliant free kick to put the host in front just before Akanksha Kandalkar made it 2-0 from close range.

On the 34th minute, Karen Pais made it 3-0 for Mumbai as Osmanabad’s defender was caught napping inside the box. Women’s league player of tournament Kimberly Fernandez then scored her first and Mumbai’s fourth of the match to put the tie to bed.

Priya Tiwari, Pooja Dhamal and for the second time in the match, Kimberly scored in the dying minutes to ensure Mumbai’s victory.

Gondia 1-0 Jalgaon

In the second match of the Championship and the first of Group C, Tripati Deep helped her side to register a narrow victory over a hapless Jalgaon side.

Her first half strike proved to be the decisive goal as Jalgaon didn’t make enough of their chances to bounce back in the game.

Kolhapur 15-0 Amravati

Five goals from Prathiksha Mithari and hat-trick by Prithvi Gaikwad and Mrudul Shinde helped Kolhapur to register a thumping 15-0 victory against their counterparts Amravati in their Group game at KSA ground.

Seven of those fifteen goals were scored in the first-half as Kolhapur proved too superior in front of Amravati’s young side.

Akanksha Suryawanshi bagged a brace whereas Aishwarya Havaldar and Rutuja Suryawanshi scored apiece to mark a memorable victory in their first match of the Championship.
