Solomon imports on fire in PNG's National Soccer League

Solomon players, Abraham Iniga and Jack Samani, who are playing for PRK Souths Football Franschise in the Papua New Guinea's semi-professional National Soccer League have scored doubles to bag the minor premiers trophy over the weekend.

PRK Souths claimed the PNG National Soccer League minor premiership trophy by thrashing Alois Kingsley Madang Fox 5-1 at the Laiwaden Oval in Madang yesterday. Souths Solomon Island imports midfielder Abraham Iniga and striker Jack Samani tore Madang Fox defence to pieces to score. Both Iniga and Samani scored doubles to have the minor premiership title in their bag.

The game started slowly until Souths settled to see their midfielder Iniga bullet the opening goal from outside the 18yard box to hit the net as Madang Fox goalkeeper Daniel Wato watched helplessly to lead 1-0. At the restart of the play, Madang Fox lost possession of the ball when Souths capitalised and skipper Lepani set his striker Samani to score the first of his two goals to lead 2-0. In the second half, Souths proved that they were serious contenders for the NSL champions tag when Iniga collected his double through a header following a good cross from his skipper Lepani to extend the lead 3-0. Frustration crept into the game with Madang Fox starting to employ dirty tactics but Souths kept their cool to score another through Samani from a penalty after he was brought down in the penalty box by a Madang Fox's defender. The Port Moresby-based team were not satisfied with the scoreline to see their Kimbe import David Muta put the game out of their opponents’ reach 5-0.
