Hekari thrash Huawei PS

Flanker Koriak Upaiga raised his Golden Boot tally with three goals while midfielder Emmanuel Simon added another two to raise their unbeaten stakes in the Southern Conference matches.

Hekari’s power striker Tommy Semmy had a rusty start failing three attempts that were foiled by PS Huawei goalkeeper but he gave in to Semmy’s fourth attempt for 1-0 lead.

Semmy had a hard time finding the mark with PS Huawei’s defenders frustrating his offensive.

PS forwards Iamo Maneka and Pokana Mea however were intent in attack despite lacking any real progress.

Maneka’s insistence paid off when he found a bare Hekari backline and rushed through to drive the ball past Hekari goalkeeper Ishmael Pole to level the scores 1-1 at the break.

In the second stanza, an indignant Maneka had Pole in trouble while chasing a long range shot from defender Francis Tulem.

It was during that split second that Pole despite having a hand on the ball let it slip behind him for PS to grow stronger with the score at 2-1.

That lead however was curbed on the next instant when Wira Wama unselfishly pushed through the ball for Upaiga to sweep past PS goalkeeper at close range to level the scores at 2-2.

Koriak and Simon were in devastating form and kept troubling the PS backline until Simon put one through to take the lead to 3-2.

Upaiga struck again after connecting a Daniel Joe’s cross to take their lead to 4-2 before Simon again scored his second goal for a 5-2 lead.

Then Hekari flanker Otto Kusunan drove deep into PS territory before crossing a low ball for Upaiga to head in his third goal and close the match at 6-2.
