Koloale 6 – Malaita Kingz 0

The Koloale outfit featured former Hekari United duo Henry Fa’arodo and Gideon Omokirio for the first time in the Telekom S-League and the pair certainly made their contributions in their respective positions in the midfield and backline but the day belonged to Benjamin Totori who furthers his status as playmaker and goal scorer with his top class performance.
Koloale struggled in the opening minutes and it looked like Malaita Kingz were going to be the first to score with Bartholomew Sale heading towards goal from a cross in the third minute but Shadrack Ramoni got in the way to save the ball.
Malaita Kingz had another opportunity to score through Dick Bensy in 11th minute before Koloale started coming into the game firstly through Ian Paia who sent his shot too high and Benjamin Totori who found the post after beating 2 defenders.
The first goal came after 20 minutes of play from the penalty spot after Joses Nawo was fouled and Totori found the back of the net in the second attempt after the referee Matthew Taro ruled that Leon Fox moved out from his line too early to save the first one.
Koloale extended their lead to 2 nil just after the 30 minute mark from a perfectly aimed free kick by George Suri after Paia was fouled by Bensy outside the penalty box and could have gone further through Totori and Mostyn Beui but Malaita Kingz were able to prevent more goals coming before the break.
A more organised and determined Koloale side returned in the second and their opponents were left at their mercy as they took control of the game in the obvious chase for a giant score line.
Three (3) minutes after the restart Beui made it 3 nil with a fine finish from close range after receiving a low cross from his right before turning towards goal and slotting the ball past a defender and the goalkeeper.
Malaita Kingz almost got on the scorecards in the 55th minute when Trevor Suinao used his speed to beat one opposing defender before crossing to Sale who could have done better with his shot but he sent the ball went too high.
Two (2) minutes later Koloale went 4 – 0 up through Totori who crept behind his markers where he picked up a cross from Beui before hammering the ball past Fox.
Paia gets in on the act in the 77th minute when Totori pushed forward with a powerful run before turning the pass to the youngster who sent the ball home with powerfully struck low shot.
Paia returned the favour to Totori in the 82nd minute when he sent a lofted ball towards the former Waitakere United striker who scored the first hat trick of the Telekom S-League adding Koloale’s sixth and final goal of the day.
The victory puts Koloale back on top of the Telekom S-League table with 15 points claiming the spot back from Western United who move to second place with 13 points.
