It is a well deserved win for the Minerva colts who put up a confident performance in the finals. They defeated MDSC by three goals to be crowned the U-13 Youth League Champions for the season 2017-18. Mohammedan, on the other hand, never looked to be in the game and were overshadowed by the team from Punjab.
