Haryana - Nagaland showdown in Subroto U-17 Girls final
The Girls Senior Secondary School from Bhiwani will take on Sports School from Kohima in the final of the Under-17 Junior Girls at the Dr. Ambedkar Stadium on October 10...
In the semifinals played at the same venue today, the Haryana girls outscored Umthli Secondary School from Meghalaya with an 8-0 verdict while a solitary goal from Nenneiuah in the 51st minute saw the Nagaland girls take their appointed place, beating Government Mizo High School (NCC) from Aizawl.
In fact, the contrasting semifinals one could witness a proper game plan devised by the Bhiwani girls against their Meghalaya rivals. Attacking from the word go, they had a complete control over the match as was evident from the deep inroads they made. On the other hand, the girls from Meghalaya, on a tight leash, failed to pierce through strong defence of Haryana.
Rajini Bala and Tamanna struck within a minute of each other in the fourth and fifth to surge ahead. Then Nisha and Sushma followed suit in the 17th and 18th minute to swell their tally and before the teams went for break Nisha struck once more as Haryana led 5-0. After return, Nisha hit the target twice for her four goals and Smiksha completed the rout.
