The weekend of football in New Caledonia’s top-tier football league had some surprises; AS Lössi could hold AS Magenta to a draw – two rounds in a row Magenta is unable to win at Mobil Super Ligue – and the then leaders Tiga Sport also failled to capitalise on SC Ne Drehu at Stade Numa Daly. The round was very good for Hienghène Sport that retook the top of the table as they surpassed JS Baco at Stade de Hienghène; Horizon Patho is now third in the process tied in points with the two top-tabled Hienghène and Tiga.
AS Wetr collected a very important win over AS Mont-Dore that continues their bad moment in the national league. The impressive 4-0 win of Wetr put them now at the fifth place in the standings with the same number of points of SC Ne Drehu. Germain Haewegene scored his goal of number nine in the league in this clash – the top scorer of the league so far.
Jeremy Jeno scored for AS Magenta first in the second match of the Saturday, but Anthony Timoteo was able to find an equaliser for AS Lössi. In Maré, at the Stade de la Roche, also on Saturday Horizon Patho continued their impressive season winning AS Kunié by 3-0; goals scored by Paul Ngaiohny, Yoan Bearuné and Luc Andre Washetine. To complete the matches of the Saturday, Hienghène confirmed their favouritism in the derby of the north against Koné-based side JS Baco by winning the visitors by 3-1.
On Sunday at Stade Numa Daly, Richard Sele‘s goal was not enough for Tiga Sport as they suffered an equaliser from Lifou’s SC Ne Drehu. With the 1-1 draw, Tiga lost their first place in the run, but they continued tied in poits with the first placed Hienghène Sport – and also with Horizon Patho that is now ranked third.
