Tibet-Football-tourrnament-2017Dharamshala — The champion of the 2nd Women's Football Tournament was Hans Raj Mahilla Maha Vidyalaya (HMV) who beat DAND Football Academy (DFA) in a penalty shootout (6-5) after the match ended in a draw (1-1) at the Upper TCV football ground in Dharamshala on June 7th.

The winning team from Jalandhar had to come back from a goal behind, scoring the equalizer just a few minutes before the end of the match.

In a penalty shootout, HMV’s goalkeeper denied two penalties of the team from Amritsar, ensuring their win as champions of the tournament's second edition.

Without any Tibetan team in this year’s final, the two Tibetan teams - Tibetan School Girls’ Team and Tibetan Open Girls Team – faced off each other in an exhibition match, which the TSG team won with a score of 2-0.

President of Central Tibetan Administration, Sikyong Dr. Lobsang Sangay attended the match as the chief guest.

In an interview with Phayul, Tenzin Sheldon, who has played in both the tournaments, said that Tibetan girls still have lots of room for improvement if we compare ourselves with the visiting Indian players, who have been practicing for months.

“A team has been selected and if the team is given proper training, we can beat them."

TNSA organized the tournament in collaboration with the Tibetans Women’s Association this year.
