The Hurricane ladies, cheered on by their male counterparts, came from behind to turn the tables and clinched the second and third set 7-15 & 11-15 to lift the cup. Earlier during the round robin league, Capital Challengers remained unbeaten against Hawally Hurricanes and Ahmadi Avengers, led by Dr. Prashanthy Sheejith, while Hurricane gals storm passed, a fighting Ahmadi Avengers to book a place in the final.
