X-Beam 1- Koloale 3

The return of Ian Paia to the Koloale line-up was a major confidence booster for the club after missing his services against Solomon Warriors last week due to suspension. X-Beam, on the other hand, were missing key players to suspension and religious commitments.
However, it was the in-form Luwi who had everyone’s attention with his goal hungry attitude. It took only two minutes for him to register and while full credit goes to Luwi it was Paia’s run along the wing that provided him with the opportunity.
Koloale’s lead was extended in the 20th minute when Luwi sneaked past the X-Beam backline and ran scot-free to score his second of the match. More damage was piled on X-Beam when Koloale went three up in the 33rd minute courtesy of midfielder Mostyn Beui.
Unfortunately, for Koloale, their star striker, Luwi, had to exit the match after clashing with X-Beam defender, Stanton Hila.
The second half featured a desperate chase from X-Beam who tried to manifest something magical from their predicament. John Duddley came close to scoring 67th minute but Shadrack Ramoni made a good save to deny the X-Beam midfielder.
Their only goal of the match came in the 81st minute from Kidston Billy and was from the penalty spot. Beui was judged to have handled the ball deliberately in his own penalty box and the penalty was awarded.
Koloale are now in fourth place while X-Beam slip to third place following KOSSA’s result earlier in the afternoon.
X-Beam: 1(Kidston Billy 80’)
