Solomon Warriors and Honiara City clashed at Lawson Tama Stadium in the eleventh matchweek of Telekom S-League – the national football league from the Solomon Islands. It was the last match of the first round and now teams will have a break as the mid-season transfer window opens next Monday.
Honiara City just needed 35 seconds to open the scoreboard. Junior Annie passed by a defender and crossed from the left to Cleophas Oriana who pushed the ball into the net. Sixteen minutes later, Tigi Molea was fouled inside the box by Prince Pue and Dennis Ifunaoa scored from the penalty spot to equalize.
Ifunaoa was having a great day and he found the net for the second time to put Warriors ahead in the 36th minute while Vanuatu international John Alick headed the ball into the net after a corner kick to extend the lead in the final minutes of the first half. The final goal of the contest was scored by Norman Winford in the beginning of the second half. At the final whistle, the score was 4-1 in favour of the Warriors.
Solomon Warriors finished Telekom S-League’s first round with nineteen points in ten matches. They are currently eight points behind league leaders Henderson Eels, which means that the team coached by William Omokirio will have a lot of work in the second round of the season.
On the other hand, newcomers Honiara City finished the first round in the sixth position with thirteen points – a solid campaign for a debutant. You can check 2020 Telekom S-League standings, results and top scorers by clicking here.
