Dinge Flying Bees and Balanga picked the last two spots available to the Quarter-Final.
Fans at Kaltungo and Billiri Township Stadium were treated to soccer spectacle by the youngsters on parade.

In the penalty shootouts, Flying Bees won 5-4.
If the first game of the day produced much to celebrate, the second was salivating.
