Solomon Warriors extend lead

KOSSA stays in second place

By Taromane Martin

SOLOMON Warriors FC extended their lead the 2017 Telekom Soccer League season to 24 point after claiming their eight win in the competition.

The Moses Toata coached side defeated a determined Real Kakamora FC 4-2 yesterday after leading 2-0 at the break.

R/Kakamora had chances but wasted them as they remain at the bottom of the table with four points after one win and a draw so far.

KOSSA FC cemented their spot in second place after beating FC Guadalcanal 3-1 on Saturday. The Eddie Marahare side looked dangerous with the combination of James Naka and Kennedy Watemae leading their attack as they secured three more points on Saturday.

The win sees them with 20 points; four points shy of the table leaders Solomon Warriors.

Henderson Eels FC and Marist FC remain in third and fourth position respectfully after a 1-1 draw yesterday.

Marist took the lead through their forward Suarez but saw Joses Nawo equalizing for Eels to spoil Marist’s parade. The draw leaves both teams with seventeen points on the table.

Malaita Kingz FC remains with 10 points following their surprising 3-2 defeat to Western United FC on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the race for the top two positions is heating up with the level of competition at the Lawson Tama improving.

While the level is of the game is slightly improving fans and some clubs are disgusted with some of the officials officiating in the matches calling on the Solomon Islands Football Federation Referees Association to train their referees more to be able to officiate the games.

A number of poor calls and reckless tackles that have went unnoticed have costed some of the big clubs who are already feeling the effects from the injuries suffered by their top players.

Meanwhile competition matches for the TSL will continue this week and on Wednesday with the mid-week clash at the Lawson Tama stadium.
