The Raiwaqa Masters team made up of veterans of the sport beat Phillipinas 49-28 at Ed's Court in Raiwaqa.

"Today (yesterday) experience won over youth and the oldies proved they still have the winning formula," he said.

"We just did the basics right and it was a learning experience for the younger players."

He said the Master's side had set the standard in the competition and provided a good challenge to the younger teams.

"Competition has been good so far. Last weekend, we had to postpone the games because of the heavy rain and we played those games mid-week.

"Competition is picking up quite well and the younger players are slowly learning and becoming better.

"The most important thing for them to do is to stick to the basics and execute the basics really well if they want to win."
