Life Skills: A Key to Women’s Empowerment

A quick one from the Mumbai District Football Association of Maharashtra, we bring you the latest development at the four-year old Magic Bus Football Team (MBFT) this time.

Mumbai, January 4, 2012: Magic Bus proved to be quite a dominant lot as they tamed Desperadoes 3-1 in a Division-I match of the Mumbai District Football Association(MDFA) league, played at the Mumbai Port Trust Ground, Reay Road, on Tuesday.

Making their intentions clear from the outset, Magic Bus hit the target three times in the first half to put themselves in a commanding position against their opponents who were struggling to find their footing.

Sushant Rajkar fired Magic Bus in front with a strike in the 15th minute, before Yogesh Kadam doubled the lead in the 20th minute.

Seven Minutes later, Charles Fernandes added his name to the Magic Bus scoresheet by scoring the third goal of the match seven minutes later.

Fighting a losing battle, Desperadoes managed to pull one back finally through the efforts of Avinash Pineiro who scored in the 47th minute.

Results: Div-I-C: Magic Bus 3 (S Rajkar, Y Kadam, C Fernandes) beat Desperadoes 1 (A Pinerho)

The MBFT has gone on to move up the MDFA League and has been sponsored by Barclays. MBFT comes across – for children and youth from all Magic Bus programmes – as an opportunity to take part in competitive sport.
