Four games took place on February 19. The first one was the second championship confrontation in the primary division between Central Abaco Primary School’s Soaring Eagles- also undefeated through the season – and St Francis de Sales. The Soaring Eagles won that game, cancelling the need for a third game, as the championship rule was to win two out of three games. There was good action, but Central Abaco Primary was more coordinated as the final result demonstrated.

The first out of three games in the girls division was next. The SC Bootle Dynamic Dolphins were playing against the Eagles. ACS’s team won by one point, 28 to 27, in a very tight game.

The second out of three games took place after school on February 22. It was a very animated and aggressive performance with the Eagles leading by five points at half time. They ended up winning by a margin of ten points, 35 to 25. The players were not the only ones animated. Coaches on the side line screamed their encouragement and advice during the game. Uproar ensued with the supporters of the Eagles hugging each other in a tumbling pile.
