The day started with a historic moment as the first ever game at the Rising Star Sports Ranch and Resort was played at 8:00am.
UDA 06B Blue won that game 4-0 in the first of their two games of the day. That result pushed them through to the final where they scored the games only goal enabling them to be a part of history and emerge as champions. There is no denying the amazing experiences those kids had.
