The group stages of the BOOST-Chennaiyin FC Football Championship were underway in full swing at the Doveton School, Vepery here today. With the entertaining one-off knockout ties to decide the group stage teams concluding on Monday, the round-robin group stage in both U-13 and U-15 categories promises further exciting football involving lots of talent and goals.
There were three group games each played in both age categories of U-13 and U-15 on day seven. Don Bosco, Perambur U-15s began proceedings with a 2-1 win over Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Virugambakkam, goals from Sri Arabind and Maran continuing their side’s fine form in front of goal.
Hosts Doveton School, Vepery U-13s then narrowly defeated Chennai Public School through Daniel’s well taken strike. Jagadish then helped Seventh Day Adventist U-13s to a 1-0 win over PSBB KK Nagar.
Back to the U-15 action, as Kings & Queens Residential School ran out 4-0 winners over Bethany H.S.S., courtesy goals from Anuj, Ashish and Aman. The only draw of the day was witnessed between SBOA U-15s and Chettinad Vidyashram U-15s, playing out a 1-1 stalemate.
The day ended with a bang as Anjuman Matriculation U-13s cruised past SBOA U-13s by a 5-0 scoreline.
