The third and final round of the inaugural PRFU all Women’s 10s League occurred at Southern Plains, Silangan on July 26, 2014. The day was washed with rain, making it both the field and ball slippery and wet throughout the two game round. Manila Mayhem took round one and Cebu Lady Dragons won round two of the league so this third round was a critical win for both teams to secure a win for the series.
The first game was messy for both teams as everyone tried to maintain footing on the field control of a slippery ball. A lot of penalties from Mayhem gave the Lady Dragons a lot of possession but in the end, Manila we able to still score two tries by skipper Acee San Juan and Co-Captain Cassie Umali. Final score Mayhem 12 – 0 Lady Dragons.
The second game after a short break secured the win for Mayhem in the series as tries scored by Aye Honoras in the first half and Michelle Mateo in the second half showed the improvement of Mayhem’s attack and defense skills. Final score Mayhem 12 – 0 Lady Dragons.
The following day, the national selection camp was held to assess the improvement of players over the development league and select the athletes for the upcoming IRB Women Asian 7s Series starting in August. PRFU extends their gratitude to the Philippine Sports Commission for their support in developing local players for international tournaments. It is there commitment and dedication to the development of athletes that made this league possible towards creating a stronger national team.
