Abba scores twice in Waitakere’s win


Andrew Abba scored two goals for Waitakere United yesterday in the New Zealand national soccer league

ANDREW Abba kept his scoring form intact by getting on the scoresheet twice as Waitakere United hammered Tasman United 3-0 yesterday in the New Zealand’s ISPS Handa Premiership.

The former Solomon Islands international, 29, has now taken his season tally to three goals in four games as five-time champions Waitakere continued their resurgence at Trusts Stadium in West Auckland.

The Chris Milicich-coached team, who got off to a forgettable start to the season with two straight losses, scored three goals in 10 minutes to record their second straight win.

Chilean Eder Franchini Pasten opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Abba came off the bench to score twice in five minutes to secure a comfortable win.

In the other match yesterday, fellow Solomon Islander Micah Lea’alafa helped Auckland City to defeat Eastern Suburbs by 1-0 and remain top of the table.
