Hyderabad: Telangana Sports School (TSS) stamped their authority in the Hyderabad leg of the Reliance Foundation Youth Sports football tournament by clinching a double crown here on Friday.
TSS first claimed the junior boys’ title defeating Kennedy High the Global School 4-1 in the final at Loyola Degree and PG College ground, Alwal. Their school girls then made it two in a row by recording a massive 12-0 victory over International School in the summit clash.
Interestingly, the TSS players Bathala Sunil and R Ravali also stole the spotlight on the final day with their fine goal-scoring displays.
Sunil single-handedly destroyed Kennedy High scoring all four goals (10th, 11th, 45th and 57th minutes), including a hat-trick. Rahul Thaniru scored the lone goal for the losers.
The TSS girls were far more ruthless as they went on a rampage from the start and pumped in eight goals in the first session itself. Ravali led the charge scoring half of them before adding another to emerge the highest goal-scorer of the day with five goals. Yedulla Pujitha was also impressive with three strikes while Sharika Rudraboina, V Sharadha, K Alekya and Savitri Guddegari netted one each.
Government Vocational Junior College, Nampally ruled in the senior boys category defeating St Mary’s Junior College 1-0. The winning goal was scored by B Mallikarjun in the 42nd minute.
However, the most thrilling encounter was reserved for the last when Wesley Degree edged past Muffakham Jah College 3-2 to win the college boys final.
