Pune: Bishop’s School, Kalyaninagar scored crucial wins in football and basketball, in the 29th All Maharashtra Anglo-Indian Schools tournament, at the Barnes School & Junior College, Devlali on Saturday.
Bishop’s, Kalyaninagar beat St. Peter’s, Mumbai 1-0 in a tight Secondary football league match, while the girls registered big back-to-back wins in basketball. The cagers first scored a 30-0 win over Christ Church, Mumbai and later tamed Bishop’s, Undri 20-0.
In football, St. Peter’s fell behind by a 14th minute goal scored by Arjun Jachak of Bishop’s but fought back brilliantly immediately after when forward Hemanshu Kundhadia fired back-to-back volleys with the first rattling the horizontal and the other sailing just over.
