For the first game of the Inter-Hostel Football Tournament, Nilgiri and Vindhyachal played against each other in an adrenaline-pumping match and honestly, we couldn’t get a better start to this season!

The anguish of missing out on inter-IIT this year, due to the unfortunate floods in Chennai, lay heavy on the players’ mind. But today’s match gave them the opportunity to shake it off and get into the game again. Early into the game, Vindy took a lead with a brilliant 2’ goal by Lenboi. Close at heels, Nilgiri equalised the score with a 8’ goal by Rishabh Baid who had entered the field a few minutes ago. His entry into the game and his display of skills raised the overall morale of Nilgiri team. The score read 1-1 till the half-time. It was during the 2nd half when Nilgiri wrested the game away from Vindhyachal with two rapid-fire goals – Saurabh Chaudhary at 52’ and Shivank Rawat at 55’. A flame of hope was kindled for Vindhyachal when Lenboi struck again at 57’ and nearly missed a free kick when the ball bounced off the top pole of the goalpost. However, the referee’s final whistle gave the game to Nilgiri. Rishabh Baid was lauded for his overall performance and awarded the “Man of the Match” title as he scored the first goal from Nilgiri’s side and acted as the moral support for the team.
