Koloale 0 – Solomon Warriors 3

The first shot on goal came in the first minute from Carrol Kakate and that was pretty much his approach throughout the game putting the Koloale defenders under pressure, thus, not allowing them to be involved effectively in their game plan.
Koloale looked like they had the game in control with the number of chances they had to score in the first half starting with Benjamin Totori’s shot in the 12th minute and later Joses Nawo’s cracker from a tight angle but both attempts were handled easily by Paul Huia whose performance has also improved in his second game for Solomon Warriors.
Solomon Warriors became more of a threat in later stages of the first half almost claiming a goal in the 32nd minute through Frazer Maebule but they got the break they were looking for did not come until the 42nd minute when Molis Gagame Jnr. followed Maebule’s attempt to put the ball past Ramoni for their first of the day.
Koloale were in unfamiliar waters going into the halftime break and needed to do something in the second half while Solomon Warriors had to ensure they did not score.
However, the second half was not favourable to Koloale as Solomon Warriors continued to mount pressure on them for more goals and closed the supply line to Benjamin Totori upfront and frustration started to creep into their game.
Koloale were further in the blues when Coleman Wasi extended Solomon Warriors’ lead to 2 – 0 in the 62nd minute.
Leading 2 to nothing Solomon Warriors were in a comfortable position but a lot of time was left to play and the danger of their lead being turned on its head was still very much alive so their approach was to keep Koloale busy in their own half.
The famous victory was finally confirmed when Kidston Billy scored their third goal after picking up a through pass ahead of Kakate before turning it into the back of the net with a powerful shot past Ramoni in extra time and seconds after the game came to an end.
Koloale are still leading the Telekom S-League standing despite this loss which they will only see as a bump in their journey so far but it will be a major confidence booster for Solomon Warriors who are looking to apply more pressure for the top spot.
