Solomon Warriors 4 – Real Kakamora 1

Real Kakamora started off well as their opponents took time to settle in but once they did they dominated proceedings until the end of the match.
Kluivert Dagi Jnr. was on target with a powerful left footed shot after only 2 minutes of play but Alfred Ali quickly advanced forward to narrow the angle and save the ball.
Solomon Warriors almost took the lead in the 10th minute through Dennis Ifunaoa who had his shot blocked by Mike Ngidu but Peter Taloga ensured that the ball went in a few minutes later when he headed a cross from Kidston Billy into the back of the net.
Sixteen minutes into the game Solomon Warriors made it 2 nil when Ifunaoa made up for his earlier miss right in front of goal to score a build up James Naka started in the midfield before heading to the flanks for a cross in to the Real Kakamora penalty area.
Molis Gagame Jnr. and Naka threatened to add more to Solomon Warriors’ first half haul but their attempts failed and they left the field leading 2 to nothing for the halftime breather.
Real Kakamora’s game in the second half was much more coordinated than the first as they used Richard Mama and Ian Ngahugari to distribute balls to Dagi Jnr. and substitute Peter Kennedy who made good runs against the Solomon Warriors backline after he was brought in to replace Solomon Mamaloni Jnr., however, excellent defending from George Kwanae and Hadisi Aengari kept them at bay.
To make matters worse for Real Kakamora, Ifunaoa struck again in the 50th minute to increase Solomon Warriors lead to 3 – 0 after managing to squeeze the ball home under pressure from 2 defenders who were hot on his heels.
Matthias Saru threatened to pull one back for Real Kakamora in the 60th minute when he broke free from his marker and curled in a powerful shot from outside the penalty box but, unfortunately for him, the ball only hit the post.
It was all over for Real Kakamora when Gagame Jnr. added his side’s fourth goal in the 62nd minute from outside the 18 yard box to give themselves a healthy 4 – 0 lead going in to the final quarter of the game.
Real Kakamora’s consolation goal, which incidentally is their first of the season, came in the 66th minute when Peter Kennedy scrambled home a shot to claim something for his efforts throughout the second half.
The win confirms Solomon Warriors claim to the third place in the league ladder with 12 points from their 3 wins and 3 draws.
