Groups of them moved together from area to area, harvesting bunches of leaves from a bush and throwing them over their heads into a wicker basket on their ...
... back they scored again and then PERSIB got a penalty. It all seemed to be goiing downhill though. Once the other team was ahead and all we got was a penalty kick, both teams were falling all over the place. At one point four people were down and they only had 2 teams of stretchers.
