Thane: Manush Shah of Gujarat added a second gold this season when he made short work of Maharashtras Shubham Ambre in the Youth Boys final of the UTT National Ranking (West Zone) Table Tennis Championships at the Sulochana Devi Singhania School here on Saturday.

Manush, who won a silver medal in the season-opener at Sonepat and picked the trophy in the East Zone at Howrah, won 4-1 with little resistance coming from Shubham. The Maharashtra lad, who showed a lot of determination, especially in the quarters, went out of the equation despite taking the second game. Both had a good exchange of rallies and counters but in the end Manush was flawless on the day.

In the semi-finals, an off-colour Manush Shah struggled against Akash Pal of West Bengal who matched his rival’s skills before bowing ou 2-4. In the match that witnessed some long rallies, the Gujarat left-hander always had the advantage. But for Maharashtra’s Shubham Ambre, the match was as good as won when he confidently won the opening game after deuce against Haryana left-hander Wesley Do Rosario before consolidating his position. It was just a matter of time before he defeated his opponent.

The Youth Girls crown went the way of Moumita Datta of West Bengal, who defeated Anusha Kutumbale from Madhya Pradesh, 4-1 for her first crown in the season. However, it was a struggle for both Moumita and Anusha in the semi-finals as they ran into stubborn Maharashtra opponents in Manushree Patil and Swastika Ghosh. But, the two experienced paddlers prevailed over them to enter the final.
