Trinity vs Einstein
With a good bunch of supporters behind their back, novice side Einstein put on a good fight.
They have already collected two wins in the tournament, but Trinity Int’l College was probably a step too big to climb for them.
They tried their best to get back in the game after falling behind by 14 points in the first quarter.
Einstein boys improved on their scoring in the subsequent quarters but even when Trinity boys took it easy their was no way back.
However, regardless of the loss, the minnows have qualified for the pre-quarter-final place with their two wins as group runner up while Trinity goes through as group winners.
Nepal Mega and Chanakya who are also in the same group have been eliminated.
