After seven matches without a single win, Tusbab Stallions are back on the right track as they have beaten Gulf Komara by 2-1 on last Saturday to stay alive in the fight for a spot in National Soccer League’s semi-finals.
Stallions’ opening goal was scored by Graham Berigami, which may be something strange for those who keep up with Papua New Guinean football as he is well known for being a goalkeeper as he represented his country at youth level playing as a keeper.
Having Berigami in the starting eleven as a forward was a shock and people got surprised with that. However, the 20-year-old player is already used to it as he has already played as a striker in local football leagues. He showed that the decision made by Stallions’ technical staff was a good one by opening the scoreboard for his side in the sixth minute of game.
Despite having scored the opening goal, Berigami did not have much time to celebrate as Renagi Ila equalized a few minutes later. The winning goal was netted by Jason Wadunah in the second half to put an end to Tusbab’s bad streak.
