SECURITY guards and match officials had to separate Waitakere United and Solomon Warriors players as tempers flared after the Oceania Football Confederation Champions League match ended in a 1-all draw at Churchill Park in Lautoka yesterday.

Referee Salesh Chand flashed yellow card each to a Waitakere United and Solomon Warriors player following a melee after the final whistle.

James Naka scored in the 45th minute for the Solomon Islanders.

Waitakere United's goal came in the 86th minute after Warriors goalkeeper Silas Seda propelled a high lob into his own net.

Waitakere United coach Paul Temple said the Warriors gave them a tough time.

"The Warriors were tough with some good players who played the ball around nicely," he said.

"We are happy to get at least get a point out of it. I'm disappointed that a few decisions did not go our way."

Warriors coach Moses Toata said they dominated the game but wasted many chances.

"We control the possession but did not put away those opportunities," Toata said.

"We wasted a few sure goals but that's the way the game went."
