The competition is played using a mixed format with men and women playing in the team. Each game is played for forty minutes with the teams receiving a 5minute half time break after 20 minutes. Teams are also given unlimited number of substitutions and players can sub in and out as much as they want.

In the end, Agriculture managed a hard fought 3-1 win. Pool B leaders ANZ produced another good performance in winning 3-0 against the Water Recourse Division. The last game of Pool B resulted in CSL winning 3-2 in a hard close game against SMI.
In the day’s other results from Pool C, SNPF scored in the last minute to defeat Legislative 2-1. This result assured SNPF top spot in their group for another week. The volunteer group, known as the Redbacks, drew 2-2 with the Audit Staff in a very entertaining game.

The match on Friday between The Ministry of Police and Transam Samoa Ltd was a special encounter for Kuno Falanifisi. During last year’s business house tournament, Kuno played for Transam and now he would be playing for the Ministry of Police against his former teammates. His knowledge about Transam proved to very useful as Police quickly scored two goals through Joe Taioalo and Chriss Peni to take a 2-0 lead at half time. In the second half Police defended well and looked to keep Transam scoreless. However, Transam were awarded a penalty with only five minutes to play, which Ringo Tapelu converted to set up an interesting finish. Police however, were able to hold on for victory.
