(We experienced one loss. Then a back-to-back loss. That was painful for us. We will really strive hard especially against the BOC because we really need to win.)
Meanwhile, the BOC Transformers aim at claiming their 8th win.
The Bureau of Customs Team is determined to maintain a clean record. For this, the team will prepare for the Malacañan Kamao intensively.
