    THE V. CLUB LOOKED SET TO BEAT THE DRAGONS BEFORE PLAY BEGAN, BUT THE DRAGONS' PERFORMANCE PROVED A SURPRISE. THE DRAGONS MOVED IN QUICKLY, AND PLAYED FAST AND HARD.

    THEY SCORED THE FIRST GOAL OF THE MATCH, AND LOOKED SET TO SOLIDIFY THE ADVANTAGE UNTIL KIOONGE AND KENO OF V. CLUB LEVELLED THE SCORE. AT HALF-TIME THE TEAMS HAD SCORED ONE GOAL EACH.

    SHORTLY AFTER HALF-TIME EACH TEAM SCORED AGAIN, BRINGING THE SCORE TO 2-2. VICTORY FINALLY CAME TO THE V. CLUB -- KNOWN AS THE "BLACK PRINCES" IN CONGO-KINSHASA -- AND THEY DEFEATED THE DRAGONS -- NICKNAMED THE "MONSTERS" -- 3-2.
