New Delhi: Oriental English School, Manipur got the better of Government Mizo High School, Mizoram by a solitary goal to lift the inaugural All India Subroto Cup Football trophy for under-17 girls here on Thursday.

The Manipur girls began the summit clash as underdogs against the free scoring Mizo team, whose star striker Offee Lalmingahualpuia had scored 14 goals in five matches before the final in this inaugural edition of the girls’ u-17 tournament.

But in the final, the striker was marked out of the game and hardly got a scoring opportunity. The Manipur girls concentrated on fortifying their citadel and M.K. Kashmina showed brilliant presence of mind to nod home the winner in the 36th minute off a flag kick, which proved to be the winner.

Manipur coach R.K. Amusana gave full credit to the team for the success saying that they executed the plan brilliantly.

“We had a specific plan for the game. We had studied the opponents and had ensured that Offee was marked well. Our players did a good job in executing the plan and that is the reason for our success,” said Amusana, who was later named the coach of the tournament.

Kashmina, who had represented India at the under-13 level, was ecstatic after the final whistle and said she was overwhelmed by the fact that she provided the team the reason to celebrate through her goal.

“We missed quite a few opportunities. But finally I could be the reason for the win feels good,” she added.
