Western United 2 – Malaita King 2

It took Malaita King only 19 minutes to take the lead with Benjamin Kiko putting in the opening goal with a powerful strike past Western United goalkeeper, Navusu Kitu. Benjamin Totori almost drew the game level in the 24th minute but missed and Malaita King went even further in front 12 minutes later courtesy of Dunstan Quanafia with a shot from close range.
Western United’s fortunes turned for the better early in the second half their first goal came from penalty kick after Fred Bala handled the ball inside his own penalty box. Himson Teleda lined up the shot and made no mistake with a shot past Leon Fox.
Teleda grabbed the equaliser later on in the match with a shot from close range. As the Malaita King started to drop pace Western United pressed for the winner but none came and last season’s runner up had to settle with a share of points with their opponent.
Malaita King are looking forward to a 2 week break as they are bye this weekend and will play Koloale a fortnight from today the same club Western United will meet this coming weekend.
