😆 It’s been a Super Sunday as The Cathedral & John Connon Schoolwon the Bronze in Wardha at the Maharashtra State U 19 Girls DSO Football Tournament
This was the School’s First Appearance in this State Championship after having qualified as Mumbai City Champions in October 2013 and then going on to be crowned as Zonal Champions in November 2013 ~ Had blogged on this earlier
Fabulous Friday as Kunashni Parikh Captains Cathedral & John Connon School to their First ever U 19 Girls Football DSO Crown in 152 Years !
Monday, November 18th, 2013
Cathedral beat Latur 4-0 ( Goals scored by Simran,Ayushi,Anam and Tara),lost to Buldana 0-2 and then drubbed Aurangabad 5-0( Goals scored by Simran,Kunashni,Maitreyi,Urja and Roshni) to get the Bronze
🙂 Many Thanks to Cathedral Team Girl’s Mom Jankhana who had accompanied the Team to Wardha ~ she set up a Wardha Football Parents Group on Whatsapp and was giving us,Parents live updates during the Matches and even shared somes Pictures.The above Team Photo is courtesy her effort this evening
Surely a Proud Moment for the School and it’s PE Support Department and the Parents and Coach Deepak Narwade of these 18 ‘Never Say Die’ Spirited Cathedral Girls who have made this Team undoubtedly the Best one in the History of the School ~ The Coach calls them ” My Angels!”
It was a Complete Team Effort and I am Proud that this Team was Captained by my Daughter Kunashni Parikh (kneeling extreme right front row in the lone dark blue school jersey) ~She’s a Goalkeeper but played up full time in the Match for Bronze and even scored a Goal heading the Ball in ~ she’s been such an Inspiration to the Girls that some of the Junior Girls paid her a superb Compliment ” Please keep Failing in Std 12 till we reach it so you can be our Football Captain for the next few years !” 😆
Tomorrow they will announce who will represent Maharashtra at the Nationals and a few names should be from this Cathedral Team !
😆 Way to Go Cathedral Girls !
