Rev. Father Boniface Florkiah Kickoff

-Supreme Sister Whips Watanga Girls

The Catholic Women Organizations (CWOs) of Christ the King Parish on the Old Road and the St. Joseph Parish on Capitol Bypass held a one-day kickball tournament on Saturday in celebration of their 2017 Mother’s Day Program.

At Action Field on the Old Road the two women’s groups settled to a 2-2 tie, after four rounds. The poor lighting forced the derby to be cut-off.

Rev. Father Boniface Florkiah took the kickoff.

The chairlady of the program, Mrs. Bibiana B. Blay, told the Daily Observer that the Sports Day is one of the activities leading to the Parish’s Mother’s Day program, scheduled for Sunday, May 28.

She announced that on Sunday, May 14, there will be a fundraising ‘Cake Rally’ between the men and women to raise funds to expand the Parish; and the following Sunday, May 21, there will be an unveiling program.

For her part, the chairlady for the Sports Day, Madam Gbour Wilson, thanked the participants from the St. Joseph’s women. She stated that absence of the men from the St. Joseph Parish prevented the hosting of the soccer game.

Madam Gbour also thanked members from Christ the King Parish for their patronage.

Meanwhile, in continuation of the national kickball league on the same Saturday at the Right-to-play field in Paynesville, Supreme Girls whipped Watanga Girls 11-3 points and qualified to the big eight as runners-up to Young Stars Sports Club in Group Four.

Watanga Girls will have to wait for the knockout draw to have a chance to battle this season.

Young Stars Sports Club defeated Blacktom 10-3 points to finish as Group 4 winners ahead of group’s favorites Supreme Girls.
