School principal Sanjay Raman says they only found out yesterday that they’re part of this year’s FSSRL competition.

He says thanks to the support from parents and businesses they were able to get the playing kits for the team at the last minute.

Raman says this is only the beginning of what MGM plans to achieve in the sport.

In other U17 results, Marist Brothers High School defeated Assembly of God 18-1, QVS thrashed Vashist Muni College 50-4, Nasinu thumped Sacred Heart College 40-0 and Shreedar edged Dudley High 22-18.
