Solomon Warriors 3 – KOSSA 3

While the first shot on goal was from Solomon Warriors’ Dennis Ifunaoa, it was KOSSA defender, Chris Tafoa who opened scoring from a 25 yard free kick. It followed a foul on Harrison Mala by Anthony Talo and Tafoa’s set piece kick ushered KOSSA in front.
Following the goal KOSSA’s game broke down as Solomon Warriors went in search for an equaliser. This did not come until the 25th minute when Fred Bala used his hands to punch the ball towards his goalkeeper to the disapproval of the referee who pointed to the spot.
Vanuatu international, Brian Kaltack, levelled the scores by sending James Do’oro the wrong way with a textbook penalty kick.
Ten minutes later, Kency Tangis’ sent his attempt just wide but he soon made up for his mistake by giving Solomon Warriors the lead in the 37th minute. The run was along the left through Bata Furai who crossed into the box for the unmarked Tangis who directed the ball in to the back of the net. KOSSA’s appeals for offside were unheeded by both the referee and his assistant.
KOSSA looked more organised in the second half and they exposed the Solomon Warriors backline on a number of occasions but finishing correctly was an issue. Charlie Otainao failed in his one on one with Talo and was off target on another occasion from a similar position.
It took another penalty for the game to be levelled and like in KOSSA’s first goal, Talo was again involved bringing Coleman Makau down inside his own box. Bala tucked the penalty away to draw KOSSA on par with Solomon Warriors blowing the game open with ample time still left on the clock.
The lead was taken by KOSSA in the 90th minute through Otainao who fired home from a difficult angle taking the scoreline to 3-2.
Solomon Warriors did have the last say in the match when the third spot kick of the match was awarded against Albert Junior and Kaltack finished neatly to ensure his team salvaged a point from the encounter.
