The Inaugural Momase Regional Youth Games (MRYG) is entering into its finals today after teams took part in four days of hectic competition, but some codes are yet to reach the finals due to issues with venues and weather disrupting their matches.
The Touch Rugby competition is the only code that has completed its regular rounds and will host the final rounds today while Basketball, Volleyball and Soccer are yet finish their regular rounds and reach their finals.
Basketball code is expected to complete all their regular rounds today before the closing ceremony on Saturday, 30th September.
Competition Director Charles Morola said that despite having only one available basketball court, the minimum number of entries from district teams have made their matches bearable throughout the tournament.
In Volleyball, a number of games were suspended due to rain that disrupted their games mid-competition. The weather further affected the competition progress when the down pour continued throughout the day.
RYG Tournament Director Andre Ikufu assured players that they will have to use the available playing courts to complete their regular rounds and head into final round of games.
The soccer code has already secured another venue at the Madang Teachers College which will add to the two other soccer pitches already available at Laiwaden for their competition games.
With a total of 40 teams and over 90 games, organizers say that soccer will need more than the three fields that are currently at their disposal to complete their matches on time.
Meanwhile, despite the rain, the Inclusive Sport code were able to get their matches underway as soon as the weather let up.
There were a good number of prospective talent that were also on display during the one day tournament which had competitors come all the way from Karkar, Sumkar and Bogia.
