Solomon student in PNG helps Sobou FC to beat Mt Hagen Blue Kumuls

Reigning champions Lahi Sobou have already sounded a warning they will defend their PNG Football Association national soccer club title. The champions thrashed a fired-up Mt Hagen Blue Kumuls 3-0 in the opening match in Pool A, then ousted the home side Kimbe West United 1-0.

Sobou had to go through a hard time before coming out winners. In what was expected to be an easy walk in the park for Sobou, they were held scoreless in the opening quarter of the first half. However, Sobou settled in quickly to co-ordinate play against Kumuls before Sowera Gurti slammed in the opener at the break to lead 1-0.

The Kumuls came back strongly in the second half but it was sobou’s experience that had the champions laughing in the end with two more to douse the Kumuls’ hope. The goals came from Clifford Wate, a Solomon Islander (31st minute) and captain Richard Daniel (60th minute) to seal the game 3-0.
