The Ma­ha­rash­tra out­fit dis­played ex­cel­lent un­der­stand­ing and co­or­di­na­tion and worked bril­liantly as a team and went on to record a thump­ing 10-0 win against a lowly Dadra Na­gar Haveli in their sec­ond Group-B league match of the West Zone leg of the Na­tional Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship for the San­tosh Tro­phy in So­la­pur, on Sun­day.
