When the second round of play-offs was announced, Belvo One and Belvo Two were disappointed to learn that they would be playing one another. Making the best of a tough situation, they infused the 20-minute match with fun and playful sportsmanship. Though only one team would go through to the plate competition, both would share in the fun spirit of the tournament.

The prevailing team went on to face a tough Swedish squad. At the end of two challenging halves the opposition was scoreless. The Belvo ladies, came out on top by 24 points up and proudly came home with another piece of silverware for the club.
