“My team is a new team with more of freshers who are now experiencing the league…it was because of lack of experience. It’s the first game…my boys did well they played well but they are yet to still get the experience to better themselves to play as a team and grow more” he said.

Seven teams are competing in this season’s league with the top four ranked teams at the end of the regular season slated to play in the postseason.
