First half goals down Nashik as Pune reach final

In the second semi-final of the day, Pune took on hosts Nashik. Both the teams started the game well and did not give each other many chances to break the deadlock in the opening minutes of the game.

Pune eventually opened the scoring in the 24th minute. A ball from the left wing came into the box which was not properly dealt by the Nashik goalkeeper. Pune’s Roshini took advantage of the situation and slotted the ball home to give her side the lead.

Six minutes later, at the half-hour mark, Pune scored again, this time courtesy of Purva. The Nashik goalkeeper again miscalculated the situation and Purva pounced on the opportunity and bagged the goal for her side.

Nashik could not make a comeback in the game as Pune came out on top in the end.

FULL-TIME: Pune 2-0 Nashik

Kolhapur will face Pune in the final of the WIFA Interdistrict U-17 Girls Tournament on 18 May 2022 at 08:00 am.
