The 2nd edition of GTA U18 Gold Cup kicked off from 22nd September with 16 teams participating for the glory. Out of 16 teams, four deserved teams from the region qualified for the semis, namely S.U.M.I Kalimpong, Mungpoo Youth Club, Royal F.C Siliguri and Himalayan Sporting Club Darjeeling.
1st Semi Final was played between S.U.M.I and Mungpoo Youth Club. Samuel Tamang gave SUMI deserved lead in the first half, despite dominating the game SUMI could not find the killer goal and missed numerous chances. Substitute Darpan Gurung equalised for Mungpoo in the additional time of 2nd half. Thus the match was decided by penalty shoot out. Mungpoo converted 4 out of 5 while SUMI could only convert 1 out of 4. Heroic moment for Mungpoo´s goalkeeper as he saved two crucial penalties to put his team through to the final.
2nd Semi Final was played between Royal F.C Siliguri and Himalayan Sporting Club Darjeeling. Royal F.C fielded only 10 players due to age issues and paid the price as Pujan Subba and Jai Hang Subba scored for the Darjeeling side in the opening 20 minutes of the game. Pujan Subba got his second just after the start of 2nd half. Rohan Biswakarma scored the consolation goal for Royal in the dying minutes of the game. Himalayan Sporting´s substitute Rohit Subba made it 4-1 to put the game into bed.
