Jack Samani scores hatrick in PNG to greet new PRK Souths' coach in style
PRK Souths has been one of the most feared franchise in the Papua New Guinea National Soccer League because of several Solomon imports, but recently slipped down the ladder after unimpressive performances following the departure of one of its founding coaches, Paul Usumai. As a result, they have signed Jerry Allan who was part of the Marist FC Coaching panel to rescue their hopes of winning the league.
Jerry Allan who hails from Gwaunatafu Village in Malaita started his National Soccer League tenure in style as PRK Souths slipped out of midseason slumber to hammer rivals Gelle Hills 5-2 in the local derby in Port Moresby on Saturday. According to reports from the PNG National, Jerry Allan had done a lot of work with Souths on attack and defence, and was after the game.
PRK Souths led by prominent Solomon players such as Jack Samani, Abraham Iniga, and John Iani enabled Souths to score four quick goals in the opening 30 minutes to completely shutout Hills. Jack Samani, who scored a hat-trick of goals was also named man-of-the-match.
