KOSSA 1 – Malaita Kings 0

How the match panned out was far from everybody’s expectation with the provincial side levelling proceedings against KOSSA who found it difficult to break through the tough Malaita Kingz defenders.
The match was characterised by numerous missed opportunities on the part of both sides but Malaita Kingz will be feeling the pain more because the dying minutes of the game saw them let go of 3 right in front of goal opportunities to either claim a draw or even win the match.
Micah Lea’alafa was KOSSA’s key man for the day claiming most his sides shots on goal and also the only goal they managed and after only a few minutes he threatened Malaita Kingz with a header that went just wide and a few minutes later he fired in a shot which Leon Fox managed to control after it deflected out from his hands.
Kim Tegerobo started the attack for Malaita Kingz with a shot inside the KOSSA penalty box but his attempt went too high and a few minutes later George Ladusu let loose one from outside the 18 yard box forcing Severino Aefi to make a good save.
Despite several more chances for both KOSSA and Malaita Kingz in the first half neither side was able to register on the scoreboard.
The second half panned out similarly to the first but KOSSA moved more efficiently pushing through simpler passes to Lea’alafa in front but his shots went straight to Fox who made easy saves.
Lea’alafa continued to work hard for KOSSA and in the 66th minute he scored against Malaita Kingz with a shot that went directly to the goalkeeper but it was too powerful for him to pick up and it went all the way into the back of the net.
The Malaita Kingz search for goals was not affected by KOSSA’s strike but despite their best efforts late in the match they could not find any goals.
John Bakila, Henry Temewale and Bartholomew Sale all went close but their efforts either went wide or over the cross bar and even extra time could not salvage the game for them.
KOSSA may not be happy with the score line but it is a win nonetheless and the 3 points that come with it are invaluable and with this they now move up to third spot in the table behind Solomon Warriors and Western United.
