Warriors thump Kiwi FC

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, April 16, 2014

SOLOMON Warriors ended their OFC Champions League campaign on a high thumping Kiwi FC 8-0 at Lautoka's Churchill Park yesterday.

The Warriors have been bundled out of the competition after their 1-2 loss to AS Pirae in their first pool game before drawing 1-all with Waitakere United.

Laced with seven Solomon Islands national soccer players, the side finally found form to demolish the Kiwi FC outfit.

Former Rewa striker James Naka was one of the standout players in the Solomon Islands outfit but it was his teammate Micah Lea'alafa who stole the show scoring four goals.

Naka opened the floodgates with a powerful strike in the sixth minute of play to lay the platform for his team.

Other goal scorers for the Warriors were Dennis Ifuanaoa, Jerry Donga and Gagame Feni.

Warriors coach Moses Toata was satisfied with the performance of his boys despite bowing out of the competition.

"The players were able to improve from the mistakes they committed in our first two games," he said.

"They played wonderful football today, unfortunately we are out of the tournament."

Samoan-based Kiwi FC could not do much to counter the opposition.

The side committed basic mistakes which was capitalised by the opposition.

Despite the loss, Kiwi coach Martin Tamasese said his players learnt good lessons during the competition.

"Even though we failed to win any of our games, I am satisfied with the players' performance," he said.

"The competition level is very high and our players are fortunate to be exposed to this kind of competition."
