City girls Anoushka Parikh and Devarshi Sanghvi will vie for the top honours in the under-19 girls’ singles at the 4th Gujarat State Badminton Tournament.
In the semis, at Gandhidham on Saturday, top seed Anoushka faced little hassle in beating third seed Maitreyee Khatri of Vadodara 2113, 21-13. Maitreyee, to her credit, tried to put up a fight but she was clearly no match for India’s top ranked junior doubles player.
The other semi-final saw Vadodara’s Riya Gajjar’s run in the tournament halted by second seed Devarshi. Unseeded Riya did her best to stretch Devarshi but the later was at her best to register a 2115, 21-18 win to book the final berth.
