9:40pm Snipers vs Scuba FC: Scuba starting off brilliantly scoring two goals in 2 minutes from kick off through Pryo and Darren, looking sharp and dangerous .The Snipers quickly shrugged off the shock and got their defenses back in order, the game slowed down with both teams very carefull not to make mistakes however a foul committed by Scuba FC just outside the box gave Snipers their first goal. In the second half Scuba could not capitalise on many of their attacks , Snipers equalising through Ibrahim Anmak early on and finishing off with Atalay close to full time took the game 3-2.
