Solomon duo shine in Nelson College FC victory in New Zealand

Solomon Island students at the Nelson College in New Zealand, Joachim Rande and Andrew Abba (pictured in blue), scored a brace of goals each to help their school club beat Redwood Pirates in a "top of the South" match at A&P Park on Saturday.

Nelson College proved too fleet of foot for Redwood Pirates, running out 5-2 winners.

Nelson's high speed attack consistently had Redwood on the back foot as they struggled to keep pace with run-away striker Andrew Abba and equally impressive midfielder, Joachim Rande.

The Solomon Island duo were a consistent threat throughout the match, accounting for two goals apiece.

Abba put College ahead in the 12th minute after a period of sustained pressure while Rande caught the Pirates defence flat-footed in the 26th to race away for College's second.

In the 10 minutes after halftime both Abba and Rande registered their second goals. Rande's effort a viciously slicing shot from 40 yards.

Brendan Lang's 30 yard speculator got Pirates back within 4-2 with 27 minutes remaining but College added a fifth goal soon after to seal the win.
