Warriors Gagame Feni shields the ball from a Kings defender
S-LEAUGUE leaders, Solomon Warriors yesterday were close to have their unbeaten run in the competition end following a 2 all draw with league’s underdogs Malaita Kings.
Kings who were the day’s favourites had an injury time opportunity for them to overthrow the champions through a well build up attack which found their unmarked captain, Coleman Makau who failed to concede what would be a breakthrough for the league’s new comer’s.
Kings had their noses in front in the first minutes of play by Makau and George Abba; however the defending champions making sure they go for the breather without a blank score board had their first after goal following a through ball from captain, Judd Molea that caught speedy forward Dennis Ifua’onao in the Kings 80 yard box who tip the ball over a on running Kings custodian, Felix Ray to make it 2-1 before half time.
Both teams came back after half time with high expectations, however with Warriors dominating most of the ball possessions had a neat foot work in the Kings half that found their sneaky front man, Micah Lea’alafa to settle the score board.
The game had both coaches out of their seats and fielding in more freshmen in the second period of play.
Mid way in the second period Warriors were given the opportunity to advance from a spot kick result from a foul committed by Kings Defenders.
Then to Kings Relief Warriors captain Molea slot the ball wide from the goal mouth.
The second draw for Warriors means they now yet sits on the top of the table with 28 points from yesterday’s game, and Kings crawled up the table with 18th points.
In the other game yesterday saw Kossa take Real Kakamora at 4 pm.
