The biggest sporting extravaganza of 2k17 started with a bang as 15th March heralded the beginning of Engineer’s Cup. It was three days of sheer adrenaline and awesomeness as teams from all over Odisha battled it out for the ultimate title! Let’s have a look at the various events!

The countdown to the 2017 Engineer’s Cup football season was much awaited, as spring practices and position battles for spots to the finale were on the depth.
It’s no surprise a handful of talented teams participated, ready to push for the title.Needless to say, football season at CET started with a bang!
CET-A, IHM, GIET-B, IGIT, GITA, GEC were the leaders of their respective groups and qualified for the next round.
CET-A, GIET-B, IGIT and GEC qualified for semis with CET and IGIT cruising to the finals. CET indeed made a spectacular comeback in the semis from 1-0 down to 2-1!

With hundreds of supporters and amusing commentary, the finals started. Well, when they catch fire, the CETians can bury opponents fast but doing the same against IGIT wasn’t easy.IGIT offered a much stiffer challenge. The first half was all about CET’s attack and gameplay.  But IGIT gained momentum in the second half and with a beautiful free kick by one of their players, IGIT were leading CET. With a goal in hand, IGIT aptly “parked the bus”  and killed off time with their possession-based play.
But in the end, IGIT became winners.So IGIT scored a ‘hat-trick’ of winning Engineers Cup at CET. Seems like running big teams out of the arena in March is becoming second nature to IGIT. But let’s not be disheartened CETians for we can work hard and play hard to break this streak.

They say Football is not a game but a religion. And CETians play football with their body, heart and soul. So that day isn’t far when the Engineer’s Cup will be in our clutch.

Sports are not just a means of entertainment but also a method by which human beings experience the power of teamwork, perseverance, patience, temperament and physical fitness. Volleyball is a sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team’s court under organized rules. Tough fights, powerful smashes and great blocks make this sport more interesting.

In this year’s iteration of Engineer’s Cup 2k17, a total of 14 teams participated in men’s volleyball, out of which two teams were from CET.
This year too, CET-B with hopes to preserve their winning streak from last year’s Engineer cup, in which they bagged the winning trophy, defeated the IGIT SARANG team in the finals. This year, the level of volleyball was better than its previous versions.
It was a knockout match tournament in the league rounds in which every teams showed their commendable coordination and several smashes to reach the semifinals. Four teams (CET-B, IGIT SARANG, ITER & RITE) qualified for the semifinal round. In the 1st semifinal, CET-B defeated the IGIT SARANG team by winning 2 sets out of three. On the other hand, ITER defeated the RITE team by a huge margin in the 2nd semifinal.
Final report:
CET-B won the toss and chose to serve. In a neck-to-neck match consisting of five games, the teams alternated in proving their mettle on the field. The first and second game was won by ITER which put a tremendous pressure on the home team. After losing two games, CET-B faced a do-or-die situation, as losing the third game would imply no fourth and fifth game and an automatic win for ITER. But, the comeback from the home team was appreciable. They managed to win two sets consecutively. The crowd too roared along with the players, as both teams inched towards the win. In spite of playing cautiously and narrowing down the margin of victory by preventing ITER from claiming an early lead, CET-B committed some blunders and ITER emerged triumphant, winning 15/9. ITER won the match 3-2. A shout-out to the CET-B team for putting up such a tough fight!
