The Shaheen Sports Festival at Govt High School Ground in Sheikhupura completed its quarter-finals stage on 20 December 2012.
In 1st quarter final, Manawala FC beat favourites and fellow Sheikhupura side Muslim Sports FC 1-0. Aamir’s goal was enough to send Manawala to the semi-finals.
In second quarter-final, hosts Shaheen FC’s Red team beat Sukheki FC (Hafizabad) 3-1 with goals. Only Asif ‘Totti’ could score for Sukheki against a Shaheen Red side dominated by players largely from Faisalabad.
In 3rd quarter-final, the youthful Housing Colony FC beat Shaheen’s Yellow team 2-1. Umair Javed and Shahzeb scored for Housing Colony while only Husnain could respond for Shaheen yellows. Shaheen FC’s main side played as Yellow in the event.
In last quarter-final, Al-Fatah FC beat Farooqabad’s Mujahid FC on penalties 3-0 after a 1-1 draw in normal time.
The results meant Manawala FC, Shaheen Reds, Housing Colony, and Al-Fatah qualified for the semi-finals to set up an all-Sheikhupra clash for the title.
