Manipur stamped their authority as the team to beat in the ongoing Junior National Football Championship for Girls U-18 with a commanding 12-0 victory over a hapless Bihar side. Manipur jumped into the lead very early on in the match with W. Ranjibala Devi scoring a goal in the 4th min of play. Bihar tried valiantly to control the Manipur offense briefly for a few minutes before Manipur went on a goal scoring rampage dashing all hopes of a possible Bihar comeback. Manipur although missing their star forward N. Ratanbala Devi for the 2nd match in a row did not deter one bit and H. Daya Devi filled in her shoes to perfection. The Manipur forwards Kashmina and H. Daya Devi scored 9 goals between them with H. Daya Devi scoring in the 31st min, 32nd min, 78th min, 85th min, 90+3rd min and Kashmina scoring in the 30th min, 34th min, 43rd min and 58th min. Left flank playmaker S. Ranjana Chanu scored a goal in the 86th min and captain Y. Hemolata Devi scored in the 37th min of play. Manipur played a team game with very unselfish play and the full team displayed good speed with the ball and deft passing skills. Premi Chiru and Hemolata Devi controlled the mid-field line and Anita Devi and Ranjibala Devi combined well on the right flank. Manipur held most of the ball possession throughout the game and displayed good on ball skills with short passing game. Most of the match was played in Bihar’s half with only Tara Khatoon working really hard to drive Bihar team forward. Manipur moved the ball around well, changed sides, with lots of touches to the ball and every player was fully involved in the game. In short, Manipur totally outclassed Bihar and torched them with a dozen goals with the final score reading 12-0 in favour of Manipur.

Maharashtra score a very impressive 5-2 win over Jharkhand in their concluding Quarter Final match of the Junior National Football Championship for Girls U-18, 2015. Maharashtra has been one of the crowd favorites of this championship and they put on a good display for their spectators and well-wishers to finish off their campaign in style. Bhagyashree Dalvi was the ultimate star of the match and she scored 4 goals for Maharashtra in the 38th min, 55th min, 55th min and 85th min of play to take the game away from Jharkhand. Bhagyashree was supported very well by the key Maharashtra play-maker Smriti Girish (Jersey no. 13) who was instrumental in driving the team forward and created numerous goal scoring opportunities. It was actually Jharkhand that started off well and dominated play in the early proceedings and took the lead with a goal by Purnima Linda in the 20th min of play. Sejal Nakhawa equalized for Maharashtra in the 30th min and the game was back in Maharashtra’s control. Maharashtra’s midfielders worked very well in unison and V.K Sruthilakshmi, Nikita Jadhao and Zarastyn Mistry distributed the ball well on both sides of the pitch. Bhagyashree Dalvi put Maharashtra ahead in the 38th min with a nice goal. Maharashtra led 2-1 at the Half-time mark. Changing sides, Maharashtra took full control of the match and Jharkhand had no room to move with the strong Maharashtra mid-field keeping possession of the ball. Bhagyashree Dalvi scored two quick goals in the 55th minute of play to give Maharashtra a 4-1 lead. Jharkhand pulled one goal back in the 65th min with Dolly Kumari finding the back of the net to trim the lead to 4-2. Jharkhand seemed pumped up with the 2nd goal and strived hard to move forward but Maharashtra stood firm and got their 5th goal in the 85th with Bhagyashree again scoring a fine goal to seal the deal against Jharkhand for an impressive final score victory of 5-2.
