The championship organised by the Co-curriculum department, Ministry of Education and hosted by the Awang Hj Mohd Yusuf, Katimahar Primary School.
15 primary schools in the Brunei IV area took part in the competition where it aims to enhance the solidarity and cooperation between the schools through sports, as well as enhance the skills of the students in football.
The guest of honour at the event was the Acting Supervisor of Brunei IV, Department of Schools, Ministry of Education, Pg Haji Hamdan bin Pg Haji Abd Rahman, who had presented the trophies and medals to the winners.
The finals saw Limau Manis Primary School and Sengkurong Primary School go head to head at the UNISSA Football field Gadong.
Limau Manis was clearly a stronger team, with better coordination and skill level than Sengkurong. In the first half, Limau Manis was already leading 1 – 0. They had dominated the game in the first half, constantly attacking and out manoeuvring their opponents.
In the second half, a more determined Sengkurong side, had shaken the confidence of Lumapas, resulting in an equalizer through a wonderful ball over the wall during a free kick. With a new wave of confidence Sengkurong began to attack to gain the upper hand. However their whiff of confidence was quickly squelched as Limau Manis plotted their vengeance.
Limau Manis then sought to punish Sengkurong, by constantly attacking their goal, and penetrating the defence. Mere minutes after sengkurong scored their equalizer, Limau Manis countered a goal of their own, after a break in the defence had left the goalie wide open.
Not satisfied with the earlier goal, Limau Manis again attacked, and in not less than 5 minutes, they had scored yet another goal demoralising the Sengkurong team further.
The football game is a yearly competition to encourage students on healthy living through sports, as well as to instil the value of comradeship, health and teamwork as well as to be active in sports.
