Eels draws to be farther from Warriors

The second round of Telekom S-League started this weekend with lots of new players. Some of them already debuted and even scored goals. Let’s check what happened in this gameweek!

SOLOMON WARRIORS 3-1 MARIST

Solomon Warriors won again after losing the first half by 1-0. As Oceania Football Center already reported Benjamin Totori (2) and Dennis Ifunaoa (1) came from the bench to seal Warriors’ win. “Feeling good to be back to Warriors” said Ifunaoa. They now have 25 points and lead the league with some margin to second place Henderson Eels. Marist goal was netted by Steward Toata.

MALAITA KINGZ 6-0 REAL KAKAMORA

Real Kakamora loses again to remain on the last position of the table with zero points. Malaita Kingz goals were scored by Edward Huniuehu (4), Michael Foster (1) and John Mark Seni (1). Huniuehu is back to the Golden Boot race with nine goals scored in this S-League, he is just behind Tony Kaltack who netted 14 times for Solomon Warriors.

LAUGU UNITED 4-1 GUADALCANAL

Laugu is one of the teams that added more new players for the second round of the league. Some of them already debuted against Guadalcanal and two of them even scored to help Laugu to win their fourth match in this season. Dunstan Quanafia and Mathias Iani netted on their debut while the other two goals were scored by Atkin Kaua and Allan Peter. Just like Huniuehu from Malaita Kingz, Atkin Kaua also scored nine goals in the league and is one of the contenders for the Golden Boot Award. Guadalcanal goal was scored by Sanga Misitana and they remain in the 8th position with just three points.

KOSSA 1-1 HENDERSON EELS

Henderson Eels opened the scoreboard with Joses Nawo in the 7th minute but Adrian Mara scored for Kossa to tie the match some minutes later. This match marked the debut of Raphael Lea’i for Eels who played 90 minutes and the debut of Charles Mani who came off the bench for Kossa. This result was not so good for Henderson Eels because they are three points behind Solomon Warriors in the title race. Kossa is in the fourth position and they must fight for the third place until the end against Malaita Kings and Laugu.
