It was a huge sigh of relief for the league after two accounts of false positives were recorded the past two weeks.
A referee and one player from Blackwater yielded positive results on their antigen tests the past weeks prompting the league to postpone some of the Elite’s games.
There was also a brief stoppage of play from Friday to allow the government to implement a new set of health protocols.
The league will resume its games on Tuesday, November 3.
