The Bishop’s School,Kalyaninagar,completed a double crown by winning the boys’ under-12 and under-14 titles,while St Vincent’s School faced the ignominy of losing both the finals they featured in,on the final day of the eighth Bishop’s Invitational Inter-School football tournament on Saturday.

Jay Gupta scored a hat-trick,slotting in goals in the 13th,34th and 40th minutes as The Bishop’s comprehensively beat St Vincent’s School 3-0 in the under-12 final.

Gupta emerged the top-scorer of the tournament with six goals. St Vincent’s had to be content with the runners-up trophy and the award for best player which went to Steve Pereira.

The under-14 final saw The Bishop’s,Kalyaninagar,take on Army Public School. The Bishop’s was in an unstoppable form as they hammered four unanswered goals against their opponents.

The ‘best player’ of the under-14 category,Ishan Dey,scored a brace as did Ronak Tanna,who ended up as the top-scorer of the tournament (u-14) with nine goals.

Dey opened the account for Bishop’s,Kalyaninagar,in the 31st minute before Tanna made it 2-0 in the 35th minute. Dey scored yet another in the 42nd minute before Tanna completed the rout,slamming in the fourth,just three minutes later.

The Bishop’s School,Camp,gave themselves some reason to cheer as they won the boy’s under-16 title beating St Vincent’s School 2-1,in a cagey affair.

Ryan John opened The Bishop’s,Camp,account in the second minute before Dhairyasheel Bhadale made it 2-0 in the 22nd minute. St Vincent’s pulled one back through Pranav Bhandari in the 63rd minute of the match,but the Bishop’s,Camp,defence held firm to deny their opponents any further happiness.
