Dholakia’s double gives Ambani title

0

Navya Dholakia, 15, played a stellar role to help Dhirubhai Ambani International School (BKC) clinch the MSSA girls’ U-16 Division-I inter-school football crown on Friday. Dholakia’s twin strikes—one in each half—ensured the Dhirubhai Ambani girls beat Lakshdham HS (Goregaon) 2-0 in the summit clash at 
Cooperage. 

“This is the first time I was playing in the MSSA final and the fact that we have won the title, has taken my joy, excitement and pride to another level. Despite having participated in the MSSA tournament for the last seven years, and even scoring as many as five goals in a match against JJ Academy in 2017 [my best performance], we somehow never managed to win the title. But this season, having lost to Lakshdham 0-1 in our first game and now defeating in the final, feels so much sweeter,” an excited Dholakia told mid-day.

“I may have scored so many goals, but at the end of the day, this is a team game. I feel it was every teammate’s performance and contribution has led us to this victory. Also, we could never have achieved this without coach Chanchal [Singh] Sir’s guidance,” added Dholakia.
