Solomon players help lift YoungHeart Manawatu to top of table in NZFC

Solomon Islands National soccer players in the likes of Benjamin Totori, Alick Maemae, and Nelson Sale have played a huge part in yesterday's victory for YoungHeart Manawatu Football Club against Otago United, to top the table in the New Zealand Football Championship after round 3.

It is understood that both Benjamin Totori and Alick Maemae scored a goal each in the 15th and 60th minutes respectively, to help Manawatu beat Otago United 4-1. Nelson Sale also played a gallant role in the defence resulting in Otago's only one goal. But the standout Solomon player in the Manawatu team who is always referred to as a constant threat to opposition teams and currently on fire is Mr Totori, who has scored three goals from three games. This has assured the Manawatu coach of good things to come following the departure of ace Commins Menapi to Waitakere United.

Just on Saturday, a Benjamin Totori goal for Manawatu has also made an upset victory over the defending champions and World Club Championships-bound, Auckland City, 1-0.
Now, Manawatu is enjoying a two point buffer atop the ladder after Waitakere United's 1-1 draw at Team Wellington on yesterday.
