In stream B, Golden Eagles defeated Rieby United 3-2, Golden Brothers thrashed Rising Stars 10-2, and Eagles beat Leicester City 6-2.
On Sunday in stream A, struggling Maru Academy held the in-form Black Stars into a one-all draw while Jacaranda Academy redeemed themselves with a 3-2 victory over Santos. African Spears returned strongly from their Saturday defeat to put five past Young Ones.
