Anthony Talo sends Kooline to Futsal Champions League final

Kooline faced AS PTT in their fourth match in OFC Futsal Champions League. It was an important clash between the current top two teams in the championship because a win could qualify the winner to the final.

Kooline began the match on fire, scoring twice in the first minutes with Philip Maeta and Alvin Hou but they did not manage to hold the advantage. AS PTT tied the match in the first half to reach the half time with the scoreboard tied at two.

The second half was being a terrible nightmare for Kooline because AS PTT managed to score twice to take the lead by two goals (4-2). The late minutes were breathtaking. Goalkeeper Anthony Talo joined the outfield players to strengthen the attack and it worked well.

Robert Laua scored for Kooline to take the disadvantage to only one goal in the 35th minute. While Kooline was trying to score to tie the match, AS PTT was doing their best to hold the win. However Anthony Talo scored after rocket shot in the last minute to tie the game.

This result qualified Kooline to the final match. The draw was not the worst result for AS PTT because they are in the second place one point above third placed AFF Futsal from New Zealand. AS PTT last match in the first stage is against last placed Suva that did not win a single game so far.

There is a huge possibility of Kooline meet AS PTT again in the Champions League final.
