Tuesday, November 20 was the opening game in the Cameron Cup competition. A cold, cloudy day, with rain showers for the game, however all the games went ahead and were completed.
Albufeira won all six points from Floresta, Alvor took all six points from Balaia, with Pedras and Valverde sharing the points. This leaves the table, at this very early stage, with Albufeira and Alvor sharing the top slot with six points each, Pedras chasing on four, and Balaia bringing up the rear with zero points.
Thursday, November 22 was the Super 10’s competition – another changeable day, but all games were completed. Full results next week.

In League A, Tavira Tigers held three points from Floresta Foresters who won five, Valverde Vipers took six points from Alvor Scorpions who won two points, Valverde Vulcans held the full eight points from Pedras Panthers, whilst Floresta Rangers and Albufeira Cats shared the points with four each.
This sees Valverde Vulcans at the top of the table with 36 points, and Floresta Foresters together with another Valverde team, the Vipers, chasing closely behind on 27 points.
