Kanyakumari grabs Subbaraman Trophy

By Super Admin

Tiruchi, Jan 2: Kanyakumari emerged as winner in the State Youth football for the A G Subbaraman Trophy defeating the defending champion, Tiruvallur 1-0 on Thursday, Jan 1.

The Tiruvallur strikers were off colour for most part of the encounter, finding it hard to control the ball. The midfielders too struggled to initiate the moves and their passes were not up to the mark. The Kanyakumari defenders stood like a rock and troubled the rival forwards, who were forced to go for long-rangers, many of which sailed over the post.

Kanyakumari was reduced to 10 men early in the second half when Nagarajan was ejected for two yellow cards. Undeterred, Kanyakumari kept up the pressure and made some dangerous moves.

Its positive approach reaped benefit when Jabersingh headed in a cross from Rajkumar in the 72nd minute. Tiruvallur tried hard to draw level, but the equaliser eluded it till the end.
