Marist unties tough Real Kakamora side
By Taromane Martin
KOLOALE futsal team posted a huge win in the 2018 Solomon Islands Ports Authority (SIPA) national futsal League yesterday hammering Henderson Eels 14-1 at the Multipurpose Hall yesterday.
Following their 9-2 loss to competition leaders Futsal Solympics, Tuesday last week, the Victor Waia Eels side fell apart in the first half, Albert Wetney, Lenson Bisili both finding the target to grab a comfortable lead.
Things fell apart again in the second half, Albert Wetney too slippery for the Eels defence as the Advanced Technology-sponsored side suffered yet again, another harrowing defeat.
“So far I’m pleased with the team’s progress. The boys I think have learnt a lot from our two matches we lost,” Koloale Team Captain Lenson Bisili told SunSPORTS after their win.
“I would like to thank all the boys for their hard work and team effort today. However, our transition during games is still a problem for us.
“It will need some polishing and every time we are working on improving it,” Bisili said.
Yesterday’s huge win over Henderson Eels FC sees Koloale FC with nine points after five matches played while Eels are yet to collect a single point.
Meanwhile, Marist futsal team continued their winning streak undoing a determined Real Kakamora side 4-2 yesterday.
Steven Toata and Braddley S put Real Kakamora FC back in the game after Alvin Ray put Marist in front with a ferocious strike.
Captain Elliot Ragomo doubled the lead for Marist and added their fourth before Ray hammered the final nail to seal their fourth win in the competition.
2017 Wantok Futsal Cup champions G-Camp FC also bagged their fourth win yesterday after stealing a 6-5 win from KOSSA FC in a nail biting match.
G-Camp had to fight back from two goals down for the victory which sees them in second place with 12 points after five matches.
Charlie Otainao found the back of the net twice for KOSSA in the first half to lead 2-0 at the break but saw Eddie Huniehu responding twice in the second half to level the scores.
Huniehu grabbed the lead for G-Camp two minutes later but saw Junior Kasute’e tying the scores for KOSSA.
A goal each from Charles Kalola and Otainoa for KOSSA followed suit to keep their search for a second win alive but saw Wilson Taloga and Huniehu adding three more goals to steal the win.
