Lyceum Football team makes it to the KUSC final
The Karachi United School Championship started out quite smoothly for the Lyceum, contrary to expectations. A dominant performance in all 3 group matches helped the team top the group as intense training followed. A thumping win in the round of 16 eventually set Lyceum up for a hard-fought victory against Bright Success in the quarter. With the team in the semi-final, chances to lift the KUSC trophy, that seemed real bleak at the start of a year, now looked like an actual possibility. A convincing 3-0 win over Agha Khan, the team that beat the current champions Cedar, set the stage for one last showdown against Nixor college. With nerves taking over and the crowds cheering, a thrilling final ensued; an equally matched performance took the match to penalty shoot-outs where Nixor prevailed as Champions. It was an unfortunate, heartbreaking end for the Lyceum team that grabbed the fair-play award in addition to the runners up trophy. Raneem Ul Hoda (C) was declared as the Most Valuable Player of the tournament.
