Shillong teams continued their unbeaten streak setting up a date with Kerala for the summit clash after sweeping through two categories in the semi-finals of the Reliance Foundation Youth Sports (RFYS) 2019-20 National Football Finals here at the Reliance Corporate Park Ground in Ghansoli, Navi Mumbai today.

In the first of four knockout games played on the day, H Elias Memorial registered a come-from-behind 2-1 victory after going down to ASC Boys Sports School, Bengaluru in the first minute itself. Goals from Gladdy Kharbuli and Sangti Shianglong ensured the Shillong side’s passage into the Junior Boys category final. Joining them would be Govt. Oriental HS from Edathanattukara, Kerala whose clinical gameplay was too hot to handle for their Dehradun opponents. 

Shillong College HS is now one step closer to defending their crown in the Senior Boys category after a 4-0 humbling of Mamta Modern SSS Delhi. The senior side of ASC, Bengaluru also bowed out after a heartbreak caused by a late injury-time goal from MSP HSS Kozhikode, the Kerala side winning the tie 2-1 under floodlights.
