Solomon Islanders on target at the New Zealand Football Championship

Solomon Islands' soccer players currently staging a career at the New Zealand Football Championship have been in perfect form, scoring goals over the weekend to help their clubs retain top shots on the leaders ladder after round ten.

In the game on Saturday at the Caledonian Ground in Dunedin, YoungHeart Manawatu with the services of several Solomon boys thrashed Otago United 5-0 to hold a close second spot behind Waitakere United.

During the game, Totori added a double to his golden boot leading tally either side of halftime, while fellow Solomon Islanders Nelson Sale and Alick Maemae also got on the score sheet after a Phil Elder own goal started the proceedings.

In the other game yesterday at the Douglas Field in Waitakere, Team Wellington was beaten by Waitakere United 0-1, enabling Waitakere to hold a four point lead over Manawatu at the top of the table.

In the game proper, Waitakere had the best of the first half chances and finally broke the deadlock a minute prior to halftime when another Solomon Islander, Commins Menapi, scored his fourth goal of the season. The Menapi's 44th minute strike was eventually the winner for Waitakere United in that match.
