Weekend matches wrap TSL action for the year

The final weekend of matches produced some stunning results as if to say farewell to the 2011 football year. On Saturday, Malaita Kingz matched Real Kakamora’s feat earlier in the week by defeating a well-oiled Solomon Warriors side 2-1 in a very entertaining encounter between the provincial side and the capital heavy weights. Kidstone Billy put Solomon Warriors ahead in the first half but 2 goals from Michael Taeman in the second half sealed the victory for the visitors from Auki.
As if the Saturday result was not enough for the fans in Honiara, Real Kakamora then caused another major upset on Sunday when they edged former O-League finalists KOSSA by 1-0. Real Kakamora’s Johan Doiwale starred with the only goal in the game and their 3-point grab takes them to fourth place in the league ladder. The win comes on the back of the 3-2 humbling they gave to Koloale the previous week.
Of the twenty-eight matches in the first round of the Telekom S-League only 24 were played as some matches were cancelled due to bad weather and also due to Koloale’s engagement in the O-League. These matches will be played as catch-up games and they will be held next year. Once the catch-up matches are completed the second round of the league will roll into action.
The second round of the Telekom S-League will start in February 2012 but that will come after the 4 catch-up matches are played first. The tentative kickoff date is set for the second weekend of February. After the league is completed the championship will follow and if required the O-League playoffs will also be held. The current season of the Telekom S-League is scheduled to end by May 2012.
The other important news for clubs concerns the transfer window which according to the Solomon Islands Football Federation (SIFF) competitions department is opening on December 15. The closing date for the transfer window is January 31 2012. Clubs will have 45 days to register new players for the second round of the league and the SIFF competitions department is calling on the clubs to sort out transfers sooner rather than later.
“It is beneficial to all concerned for transfer to be done in a timely fashion. This ensures that players are properly transferred and no disappointments will arise. I also ask clubs to respect each other and formalise all requests for transfers through the official channels,” Ian Rarawa, the SIFF competitions manager says.
