Nagpur: Anjuman College of Engineering & Technology succeeded in staying more focused than hosts Hislop College, giving of their best when it mattered the most and went on to bag the Rev. Stephen Hislop trophy as the curtains wrung down on the 20th edition of this annual inter-college football tournament on Wednesday. After a goal-bereft first half it was Rizwan Ahmed who took advantage of a goalmouthmelee and shot a low-right-footer to Hislop College’s goal-keeper Deepesh Burrewar’s left to the base of the post in the 44th minute. Giftson Saji squared a right-wing cross to make it 2-0 in the 49th minute, right-footing it from the top of the goal-area, once again in a goal mouth me lee.
Anjuman CET’s Rizwal Ahmed (18thmin)and Mirza Qadir(49th min) saw the yellow card. The need for a properly qualified referee was felt since both teams showed little regard for SiddharthKale,knowingnoharm could come to them if they challenge his decisions. An incident each from both colleges related to officiating almost brought the final to a grinding halt.
