In the second week’s training, the players adjusted consciously and played some wonderful tactical cooperation. The team beat Peking University 4:2 in the second round, gained a 3:0 win against Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture at the first knockout round, and another 3:0 win against Beijing Jiaotong University at the second knockout round. During the semi-final, CUPL defeated Beijing Wuzi University 3:0. Finally, CUPL claimed championship with a victory of 1:0 over Tsinghua in the final round.
