Margao’s Holy Spirit High School to participate in Subroto Cup

PANJIM, Goa: Holy Spirit High School, Margao, will represent the state at the Subroto Mukherjee inter-school football tournament in Delhi after they defeated Fr. Agnel Higher Secondary School, Pilar, 1-0 in the final of the U-17 inter-school football tournament organised by the Directorate of Sports and Youth Affairs (DSYA).

The Holy Spirit school team was comprised of boys from the Goa Football Development Council (GFDC) Residential Football Academy.

“These boys are the future of Goan football. They have had won the state U-14 crown but this was their maiden title in the U-17 category,” said GFDC Chairman Dr Rufino Monteiro.

Meevan Dias scored the match-winner five minutes before end.

“The boys have shown a positive mentality every time they made decisions with and without the ball. They were tactically disciplined. I am very happy for them and thank my entire coaching staff for this fabulous result. It is great news for GFDC,” said Head Coach Derryl D’Souza.

Earlier in the South District final, Holy Spirit got the better of Miracles High School, Sanguem, 5-0.
