Koloale 3 – Western United 2

The match kicked off to an upbeat tempo with both sides playing with speed giving the thousand plus fans who came to witness the game much to be excited and be noisy about.
Western United got the first shot on goal from a free kick taken by John Anita but while the shot had the power it turned away at the last moment and went out for a goal kick and Koloale’s followed shortly from Ian Paia who volleyed a corner from Joses Nawo just wide off the mark.
The first goal of the game came after the half hour mark when Anita made a great individual break past 3 Koloale defenders before slotting the ball past Shadrack Ramoni to give Western United the lead.
Koloale pushed strongly for the equalising goal but they had to wait until just before half time when George Suri beat the Western United wall and the goalkeeper with a perfectly taken free kick which almost mirrored one he scored against Malaita Kingz on Thursday.
Koloale looked devastating in the second half pushing the Western United defence to its limits with runs from Henry Fa’arodo Jnr., Totori and Nawo and their backline was also more composed than in the first half.
Totori was especially lethal for Koloale scoring their second in the 53rd minute after breaking free on the left before turning towards goal and letting loose a cracker which went right into the back of the net.
Twelve minutes later Koloale extended their lead to 3 – 1 with Totori again providing with another brilliant run on the right beating Derol Melo before pushing the ball home past Felix Ray Jnr. from a very narrow angle.
Western United were under pressure after the hour mark and despite their best efforts could only manage 1 goal which came from the boot of Nathan Kera in the 68th minute after a goal mouth scramble.
Coleman Makau almost grabbed the equaliser for Western United in the dying minutes but his shot went too high and with it went his side’s hopes for salvaging a point from the match.
The victory puts Koloale in front as outright leaders in the Telekom S-League table with 18 points from 6 matches impressively winning all of their games while scoring 23 goals and conceding only 5.
Koloale’s final match of the first round is on Wednesday at 4:00pm at Lawson Tama when they take on bottom placed Real Kakamora who are yet to register points.
