Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Mumbai: Pooja Kachare and Samiaa Shah, both produced strong impressive performances and scored comprehensive wins in their respective Girls’ under-19 singles and Women’s singles pre-quarter-final matches of the CCI-Greater Mumbai District Badminton Championship.

The second-seeded Pooja conceded just five points in coasting to a facile 15-3, 15-2 win against Vaishnavi Shete in a lop-sided Girls’ under-19 match, at the CCI Badminton courts. Meanwhile, Samiaa packed too much power for Shreya Dedhia and charged to a comfortable 15-1, 15-5 victory to seal her place in the Girls’ quarter-finals.

Both Pooja and Samiaa tasted more success by winning their women’s singles encounters. Producing another steady display, Pooja defeated Sayali Parab 15-6, 15-7, while Samiaa for the second time clashed with Shreya Dedhia and she once again stamped her superiority by charging to a 15-3, 15-1 victory in quick time to advance to the quarters.
