Teams around the nation’s capital battled on field as 32 teams came head to head against each other, including a team from the University of PNG.
In the second round of matches, Gold Black Knights battled on field with Morata Swans, both showing strong defense. It was a great battle field for the Gold Black Knights, though lacking in speed and power. The Morata Swans flew high, dispatching its opponent with a two-point lead and winning with 8 points to 4.
A tough match ensued in the third game between 9 mile Dragons and Guava Stealers but the Guava Stealers, who came in with the exact colors and design as their opponents, caused a confusing start after deciding to have its jerseys inverted. Regarless of a good start from both teams, it certainly got the best of them.
Guava Stealers, being the youngest team in the competition, satisfied itself scoring 8 points in the first half. In the second half, Guava stealers stole 4 points making a 12 point win over 9 Mile Dragons.
The tournament will run for 4 days and will end on Monday. The main purpose of the tournament is to keep the youth off the streets during the festive season with a worthwhile activity to keep them occupied.
