Northern United Soccer club pips DMP in HFA league

The Northern United Soccer club which consists of players from the North Malaita area has pipped DMP soccer club 3-2 in a tough and physical encounter at the King George VI south soccer pitch yesterday afternoon.

Yesterday's game was part of the Honiara Football Association (HFA) Division 1 league games which saw a strong DMP outfit denied victory under the mights of the Northern United boys.

During the first half, Northern United was leading DMP 1-0 with Northern's goal coming from a penalty. After the breather, both teams came firing after being mentored by their coaches. This quickly resulted in an equalizer by DMP forwards. As time goes on lack of fitness was obvious in both teams. DMP utilized that to score their second goal to the appreciation of its fans whilst Northern supporters watched helplessly to what appears to be hand ball from the DMP striker. However, sheer determination and stamina instilled in the Northern United boys by well known trainer, Mr Fa'ako Liolea, Northern United managed to slip in another equalizer to level the scoreline at 2-2. The final quarter was filled with tempo and physical attacking as both teams tried to secure a full 3 points. The Northern supporters were treated to a late winner by their left flanker to make it 3-2, enabling the Northern United team to get the full 3 points from that game.
