Description:
Morvel talks about the history of football (soccer) on Ahamb. Ahamb's team, Varus, has historically been one of the best teams in the area. The name Varus comes from their motto varus bonbon 'we paddle together'. In the past the team had to board a large canoe and paddle a long way to Lamap, where the tournaments were usually held. Some attribute their success to this team spirit.
