It was much evident by their faces, that they were very much happy to meet their friends and to get back under the warmth of their mother, “University of Moratuwa".

Before entering to the battle, the current Mora football players arranged some fun games for the old Mora football players. Old Mora players enjoyed a lot from it and it allowed all the juniors and seniors to tight up their bonds.

But as in the other matches; Old Mora warriors invaded the battle field, and refused to give up the victory. They won the 3rd match which was a seven-a-side one by, 4-3 at full time showing how they did it back in their days.
