Tyson Patel’s lone goal helps Steadfast FC see off Mumbai FC in U-16 Youth League

Steadfast FC – Mumbai Rush SC registered their first win of the U-16 Youth League after narrowingly edging past Mumbai FC 1-0 at Cooperage Stadium on Sunday evening. Tyson Jude Patel scored the only goal of the match in the 58th minute to help Paulo Magalhaes’ side to take all three points.

Mumbai FC came into the match on the back of a 3-0 victory over PIFA Colaba, whereas, Steadfast FC only managed to get a point against PIFA Colaba.

Although Mumbai FC dominated the game and kept more ball possession than their counterpart, the Yellow Submarine failed to capitalize their chances which unfortunately came back to haunt them in the second-half. Steadfast’s defenders Abel Fernandes and Shadrach Cardoza had a fine game who the majority of the match kept Mumbai FC’s forwards Kamran Ansari and  Zimik Khangampam at bay.

But the standout performer for Steadfast FC was none other than their custodian Ashray Gandhi who made some tremendous saves to deny Mumbai FC. One of the saves came off from Kamran Ansari’s powerful shot which Ashray brilliantly managed to keep it out.

In the 58th minute of the match, a slip up in Mumbai FC’s defense saw Tyson Patel in a one-on-one situation with goalkeeper Harshal Tandel where the former calmly buried his shot in the back of the net to execute an amazing counter-attacking move which put Steadfast FC in front.

Mumbai FC did have opportunities to score a late equalizer but Steadfast FC held their nerves to register their first win of the campaign. With this win, Steadfast FC have four points from two games, whereas, Mumbai FC have three points from two games.
