THE SEMIFINALS of Eugene D’Souza Football Tournament organised by Khrist Premalaya Regional Seminary (KPRP) will be played on Sunday at St Joseph’s Co-ed School playground.
Infant Jesus, Vrindavan Nagar, will clash with St Edmond Campion in the first match at 1:30 pm. Holy Family, Habibganj, will meet St Joseph’s, Idgah Hills, at 3 pm in the fight for the berth in final.
Infant Jesus of Group B who defeated Khrist Premalaya (KPRP) in the quarterfinals has good players like Randier, Praveen and a strong back Kanchan who acts like a catalyst in boosting the team’s gusto.
The morale of Group C victors, Campion boys, is high after convincingly defeating St Antony’s (Kolar) 4-1 in the quarterfinals.
Campion remained undefeated in the league stage of the tournament. St Edmond Campion is one of the most favoured teams for this year’s Eugene Memorial Rolling Football Trophy.
On the other hand, strong players like Antony, Vicky, Lavesh and Ravi from Group A victors Holy Family, Habibganj, will have to face St Joseph’s, Idgah Hills, who emerged victorious from the Group D.
Idgah Hills will surely have to work hard to reach the final. Idgah’s Ignatius Kindo and Roshan Ekka will have to work out a specific strategy so as to put a strong resistance to the imposing frontline of the Holy Family.
