Warriors, Western win as KOSSA stall

Solomon Warriors took the pitch against bottom placed X-Beam on Saturday and were clear about their intentions with a 4-1 victory. Gibson Daudau opened in the 20th minute and by halftime Solomon Warriors were comfortably ahead at 3 nothing as Jerry Donga added two more.
X-Beam rallied in the second half and a gutsy run by Danny Maeli saw them draw one back 11 minutes after the break. That goal, however, proved to be their only one for the match as Solomon Warriors regained control for to keep X-Beam at bay while allowing Dennis Ifunaoa to score their fourth late in the match.
The only cloud in Solomon Warriors win is the expulsion of striker Jerry Donga who will miss their next match but the defending champions will have enough firepower to make up for his absence.
KOSSA need only two minutes to get on the score sheet against Real Kakamora but fortunately for the Makira side that was the only time the former national representatives found the back of the net in the encounter.
On fire striker, Tony Otini, levelled for the Makiran franchise before halftime with a lovely finish and the match was won by Paul Hiri who netted in the 62nd minute. The win takes Real Kakamora to third place, unseating KOSSA who slip down to fourth as their winless streak extends to three matches.
Hana also earned three points on Sunday but it was not enough to take them beyond fifth place. Their meeting against Marist ended 1-0 with Guinean Abdouramane Kaba scoring the winner.
Western United ensured they remained on top of the title race but they were made to work hard for their victory against Malaita Kingz. Despite their arsenal of players they could manage a 2-1 win after being held to a draw for most of the game.
James Naka set Western United on the way after just three minutes but his effort was cancelled by a superb strike from Benjamin Kiko towards the end of the first half. Western United desperately searched for the winner and had a Benjamin Totori penalty to thank for seeing them home.
The action continues this coming weekend with Malaita Kingz and Western United taking on Real Kakamora and X-Beam, respectively this Saturday. Sunday sees Marist against Koloale and Solomon Warriors against KOSSA.
