The Chennaiyin FC Under 15 team lost by a 5-0 margin to Churchill Brothers SC in a Group C encounter in the National Youth League at the Utorda Sports Complex here today.
The CFC U15s started the better of the two sides and created a couple of decent chances in the opening few minutes. But with a quarter of the game gone, Churchill Brothers took the lead through a goal by Mackenzie Fernandes. And the scoreline stayed at 1-0 in favour of the Goan side at half-time.
In the second-half, Churchill Brothers dominated proceedings and doubled their lead through Mevan Shawn Dias on 53 minutes. And the same player completed his brace and made it 3-0 in the last quarter of the match, despite Chennaiyin FC’s best efforts to find a way back into the game. That was followed by two quickfire goals from Saideep Kishor and Aniket Chauvan to hand Churchill Brothers a 5-0 victory.
This concludes the CFC U15s’ campaign at the National Youth League. But despite finishing bottom of the table in Group C, this was a memorable season for the Chennaiyin FC boys, who had made it to the final round of the Under 15 Youth League on their debut season after winning the Chennai zone unbeaten.
