Current national champions Solomon Warriors faced Isabel United at Lawson Tama Stadiun on this Sunday in the seventh matchweek of 2020 Telekom S-League – the national football league from the Solomon Islands. It was a very special match for Warriors’ head coach William Omokirio as he had the opportunity to face his brother Gideon who coaches Isabel United.
This clash was a very tough one since the early minutes and the nil-nil draw remained until the second half when Dennis Ifunaoa took advantage from a ridiculous mistake by Isabel’s goalkeeper Harold Nauania to score his first goal in the season and to put Solomon Warriors ahead with a beautiful goal from the left wing in the beginning of the second half to give three points to his side.
Despite having beaten their opponents, Solomon Warriors still need to work hard to improve their performance level as they are not playing in the same level that they used to play last year. This victory pushed Warriors back to the second position in the league with thirteen points in six matches. You can check the current league standings, results and top scorers by clicking here.
