After the Boracay Dragon’s showing at the World Championships Beach Ultimate in Brazil where they represented the Philippines and won silver, and as they have been winning the annual event, the tournament was titled “Slay the Dragons”. Several teams from Manila gave it their best but still, the Dragons at their home court was in their element and showed no chance of letting go of their 5th consecutive Boracay Open Championship. The Sexual Chocolate Team, composed of celebrities, athletes and experienced ultimate players from Manila came closest but still in vain. In the end it was the Boracay Dragons White still prevailing 16-7. It was a race to 15 but a two point huck was thrown and caught in the end zone at the last point.
