Mount Sinai HSS to face Loyola in final today

Kohima, July 8 (EMN): Mount Sinai Higher Secondary School will clash with Loyola School, Jakhama in the final of the second edition of Kohima District Inter-School Football Tournament at the Khuochiezie ground in Kohima on Monday.

The valedictory function scheduled to be held at 1 pm, will be attended by MLA Neikiesalie Kire, advisor for Rural Development as the patron.

The tournament is jointly being organised by Royal Club Kohima in collaboration with the department of School Education and Youth Resources & Sports.

On the way to the final, Mount Sinai has remained undefeated throughout the tournament. They have so far scored 10 goals and conceded three goals, Dougunglal with four goals and Toshisungzung with three goals.

While Loyola has scored 18 goals with Vinongol Luho leading the goal tally with seven goals and Keduhoto Zao in second with four goals.

However Loyola lost a match against Mt Sinai in the Pool finals from a goalkeeping error. The team should be worried about the goalkeeper Luho who has conceded two goals in the previous matches.
