St. Vincent’s High School Kerala U-14 team qualified into the Quarterfinals

St. Vincent’s High School LiFFA Boys represented Kerala Under – 14 team in Subroto Cup International Championship at Delhi. U – 14 category in Subroto cup we made the history by reaching quarter final. We defeated strong contender of Gujarat, Chattisgarh and Nagaland in group matches.

This was the first time ever that the Kerala U-14 team had reached the quarter final match of Subroto International Cup. It was so tough to play against Manipur especially against their well-built physique. They pressed and played well and their intensity was really high. We had good game, we shouldn’t have conceded three goals but overall our young boys got an amazing experience from Manipur team.

It was Manipur that went into the interval with a one goal lead from corner kick. The second half started with rhythm of LiFFA of boys but unfortunately the ball had strikedVinu on the arm inside the box and a penalty was awarded to Manipur. LiFFA found the back of the net, but Bijo JB was off-side. We have looked aggressive up front, but the defence was struggling to keep up with the barrage of Manipur attacks. Again Vinu had to commit a professional foul where he pulled the Manipur forward from behind, inside the penalty area. The Manipuri skipper converted from the spot to complete their 3 goal win and ended the LiFFA‘s run of the Subroto Cup 2018-2019.
