Out of the eight university teams (Lahore School of Economics, GCU, FC, LUMS, FAST, UMT, UCL and NCA) from Lahore, the Lahore School of Economics Soccer Team scored second position in the Soccer Championship at the LUMS Sports Gala held from March 19, 2007 till March 30, 2007.
The Lahore School started its campaign against NCA with a 1-1 draw. In its next match, Lahore School defeated UCL by 6-1. The final group match was a closely fought (0-0) draw with GCU.
The Lahore School continued its form in the semi-final against the host LUMS. At full time, the thriller was stalled at 4 goals each. Both teams went all out in the extra time but the score line stood un-altered. The result came down to the first and the only penalty shoot out of the tournament. Lahore School’s team, clad in red and white, downed LUMS by 5-4 in the shootout to book themselves a slot in the finals against GCU.
