The Bintangor Lahanis have finally made the Bemobile Cup grand final in as many years, after narrowly beating defending premiers Agmark Gurias 12-6. They will now take on SBS Mendi Muruks in the final Showdown in Lae. Unfortunately for Port Moresby fans, the Grand Final has now been decided to be played in the Morobean capital, the last played there was in 1997 between Mt. Hagen Eagles and Lae Bombers.

I hang my head in shame.
But I hope that you will understand that I don't get paid for doing this as I always mention it here.
I have a full time job which I must give first preference. I commit my time out of generosity to this blog but when other matters of importance demand my time, then updates here is not a priority though I try my best.
Hello wantoks here and abroad, I'm back again after a long sleep from posting match updates here. I don't if I should apologise to you all for not committing myself here, but if you have been disappointed for the lack of updates, then, please take my excuse that I have been busy with work. Nonetheless, I will be covering the bemobile cup final series so stay tuned.
Well, the Bemobile Cup regular season ended last Sunday with the top five finishers in the competition advancing to final playoffs. They are, SBS Mendi Muruks, (Minor Premiers), Agmark Rabaul Gurias, Toyota Enga Mioks, Bintangor Lahanis and SNS Vipers.
The quartet following the finalists, Kongo Coffee Warriors, Masta Mak Rangers, ACTL Bombers and Hagen Kuris all hung their boots for next season.
The star-studded Rangers were a pre-season favorite to make the playoffs but haven't made it. What a surprise I'd say but yeah, they don't deserve to be there given their dismal performances this year.
The visiting Kongo Coffee Warriors from Chimbu Province held off a fast finishing Stop N Shop Port Moresby Vipers to draw 12-all this afternoon.
