Sia-Raga relegated to PVFA First Division in Vanuatu

The 2019-20 PVFA Premier League season reached its end as the final matchday was contested on this Saturday in Vanuatu. Although Ifira Black Bird clinched the league title with one round in advance, it was a very exciting day, especially in the fight against relegation.

Galaxy and Tafea have beaten their opponents to finish the league in second and third positions respectively. Tafea’s forward Allista Kalip scored the fastest goal of the season as he just needed two seconds to open the scoreboard for his side against Ifira Black Bird.

The most exciting match was surely the clash between Mauwia and Sia-Raga as it was a must-win clash for both sides in order to avoid relegation. Mauwia kept their good moment in the season to beat their opponents by 2-0 which means that Sia-Raga will play PVFA First Divsion – the second-tier of Port Vila football league system – next season.

Mauwia finished the season in sixth so they will not need to play a relegation play-off. On the other hand, Yatel have beaten Erakor Golden Star by 1-0 but it was not enough for the team coached by Kiki Hinge as they finished the season in the seventh position.

Yatel will have to face Seveners United in the relegation play-off while Erako Golden Star, Galaxy FC, Ifira Black Bird and Tafea will contest PVFA Top Four to fight for a spot in the National Super League.
