Kossa imposed a harsh defeat to the bottom-ranked side Malaita Kingz at 2020 edition of Solomon Islands’ Telekom S-League. The experienced James Naka scored for his team in the process, but it was the half-time substitute Lore Fonaota who made history for Kossa and certainly at the Solomon Islands’ stage as he scored four goals in only eight minutes.
Fonaota had already scored twice in the current season of Telekom S-League, but he did not start the game as an option of team head coach Fred Osifelo. But the Wednesday was to be Lore’s day: he was introduced just after the start of the second half and did not take long to hit the net; at the 59th minute his scored his first goal, but the party continued: two minutes later Fonaota was on target again, he repeated it more two times – at the 65th and 67th minute of play – to confirm his side win. At the moment the game was already 6-1, Malaita was able to score another at the end of the game, but nothing that changed the fantastic performance of Kossa and especially of the 35-year-old Lore Fonaota.
“Lore’s a natural sprinter turned footballer. The likes of Tibon Oge mentored him as he switched to football. Now as an experience striker, we’re very pleased to have him in Kossa FC. He does have his special factor which the team appreciates a lot,” said on the player Kossa’s tactical analyst Alex Waimora.
“Lore was on fire, especially after missing one-on-ones against Marist last week – he regrouped and improved rapidly“, added Waimora. Kossa added very important three points to their campaign after an unfortunate defeat against Marist in their previous match in the national league. Now the team seems stronger and expects to battle at the top of the table.

I am also watching that match between Kossa FC and Malaita Kingz and I would like to make a correction here. Lore Fonaota only scores 3 goals and not 4 as you have mentioned the other goal was scored by Harrison Mala.
That’s not what Telekom S-League stated: https://www.fijifootball.com.fj/competition-list/telekom-s-league–2020-881434424/kossa-fc-malaita-kingz-fc-6-2-881452002/
