The seventh matchweek of 2020 Telekom S-League kicked-off on this Saturday with two matches being contested at Lawson Tama Stadium in Honiara – the capital of the Solomon Islands. Henderson Eels and Kossa confirmed their favouritism and won their respective games.
Real Kakamora faced Kossa in the opening game of the day and Chris Hatarau scored an early goal to put Kakamora ahead in the fourth minute. Both teams were performing in a very good level: while Kossa were trying to equalize, Kakamora’s attack was confusing the opponent’s defenders as Adrian Mara, Benjamin Toata and Chris Hatarau were moving a lot to create chances.
Kossa had more possession in the game and the team coached by Fred Osifelo equalized in the beginning of the second half with a penalty kick scored by youngster Barrie Limoki. A few minutes later Limoki almost scored another goal but his shot hit the post. After losing a big chance in the first half, Harrison Mala found the net in the 83rd minute to give three points to Kossa.
Henderson Eels came to the pitch a few minutes later to face Marist FC. Despite all efforts, Marist were not able to stop Eels’ attack as Raphael Le’ai and Augustine Waita scored once each. At the final whistle, Eels defeated their opponents by 2-0 to remain on top of the table with eighteen points in seven matches. The bad news for Eels is that Rodney Suri was red carded in the second half and he is going to miss next week’s match against Malaita Kingz.
Le’ai is living a marvelous moment as the 17-year-old forward is the top scorer of the league with eleven goals in seven matches and it would not be a surprise if he wins Telekom S-League’s Golden Boot race for the second staright season.
Two more matches will be contested this Sunday while the final clash of the week is going to take place on Wednesday. You can check Telekom S-League current standings, results and top scorers by clicking here.
