Western United 0 – Solomon Warriors 2

Solympics duo Micah Lea’alafa and Jeffery Bule did the damage and there was no way back for Western United who did not have the guidance of their coach, Stefan Metanolmski, on the sidelines. Solomon Warriors had good backing from the sidelines and their short passes were working wonders for them in the midfield where they had almost 100 per cent control.
Western United had to rely on long balls but this was ineffective against the Warriors’ tall defenders and Hadisi Aengari had a good day keeping them at bay. However, there were times when they built up good pressure against Solomon Warriors but the finishing was not up to par.
Lea’alafa put the Warriors ahead after only 12 minutes after advancing with a string of short passes that put him behind the Western United defenders and he just flicked the ball over the goalkeeper to put his side ahead. Western United almost equalised with an effort by Commins Menapi but his shot lacked the power and Silas Seda was able to save.
Another chance fell to Western United to equalise in the second half with Joe Luwi taking the shot after combining with Menapi and although the shot had the power it went directly at the goalkeeper who easily gathered up the ball.
The win for Warriors was all but confirmed when Bule found space in the Western United penalty box and connected with Jerry Donga’s cross which beat the goalkeeper and all defenders and he coolly slotted the ball into empty goal.
With their 3-point gain Solomon Warriors are now the top club in the league courtesy of a better goal difference than Western United who share their point total of 22 points.
