The semifinal matches of the 17th state level Olympian Jarnail Singh Memorial Football tournament, organised by the Olympian Jarnail Singh Memorial Tournament Committee at Babbar Akali Memorial Khalsa College Garhshankar were played today. 

In the first semi-final of the club section of the tournament, Rail Coach Factory Kapurthala, beat the Dalbir Football Academy, Patiala 4-1.

In the second semi-final of the club category, Olympian Jarnail Singh Football Academy, Garhshankar and Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Football Academy Banga had a tough match. Although Banga Academy had a lead of 1-0 at the end of this match, but due to a dispute between the two teams, the decision could not be taken about the winner. The Olympian Jarnail Singh Football Academy, Garhshankar, had filed an objection that some players of the SGHS Academy were not registered so they were not eligible to play. The tournament committee handed over the matter to Punjab Football Association (PFA). The PFA, after the scrutiny of this match would give the decision before 12 noon on February 12. 

In the village section of the tournament, in the first semi-final Samundra defeated Fatehpur Khurd by 5-3 goals in penalty shootout and entered the finals. In the second semi-final of the village section, Moranwali defeated Garhshankar 2-0 to reach the finals.
