In the co-ed U12 age group, the Lil Rascals and Team Betde are the frontrunners in the race for the two finals seats with the former leading the four-team field with their 3-1-0 win-draw-loss record. Team Betde is ranked second with its 3-0-1 slate, while Sisig United (1-0-3) and Orange Rangers (0-1-3) complete standings. The Top 2 finishers in the group after the double-round robin elimination will duke it out for the division title on Jan. 17.
