Star Mountain’s Tau Winnie honours COVID-19 victims against FC Bougainville

The twelfth matchweek of 2019-20 Papua New Guinea National Soccer League was played on last Saturday as two matches were contested in Lae and three other matches were contested in Port Moresby – the capital of the country.

After a bad campaign in the first half of the season, Star Mountain show that they are a better team now. The team coached by Selan Elizah drew with Vitiaz United in the previous round and beat FC Bouganville 2-1 last Saturday. This match also reserved a beautiful moment during the celebration of one of the goals.

Attacking midfielder Tau Winnie scored Star Mountain’s second goal in the match and his celebration was very special: the 34-year-old player wore a facemask to show his respect to all people that lost their lives due to COVID-19 pandemics.
