Hana 1 – Malaita Kingz 1

Two weeks ago Hana were second in the league table but now they slip to fourth place and missed the chance to cling to stay in the third place as the competition starts to heat up.
Futsal international Coleman Makau opened for Malaita Kingz just 25 minutes into the match with a drawing run that pulled the goalkeeper to one side before he fired to the far post. However, that was after he squandered an opportunity just minutes before.
With the teams going to neck to neck in the first stanza with possession no more goals could be scored by the time halftime caught up.
Hana were even more desperate in the second half as they piled everything against Batram Suri’s Malaita Kingz. The result was several yellow cards as pressure mounted and time started to run out.
Malaita Kingz were not excused from their share of mishaps as two opportunities to extend their lead were missed midway through the second half.
The cost was not fully realised until a cheap foul on Dalton Maesia led to Hana’s equaliser inside stoppage time. Maesia floated the ball into the penalty area and with all the Hana players but the goalkeeper there, it was no surprise that one of them got the header.
It was not the best performance from either side but Malaita Kingz will be ruing the result more than Hana who seemed content that they salvaged a point from the match.
Hana: 1 (Eusebius Mangi 90’ + 1’)
