Hekari settled for a draw with Yamaros, 3- 3

Hekari semmed to have the game in the bag but poor defence and unneccessary fouls cost them dearly.

Yamaros seasoned campaigners and Guria’s veteran Miriam Lanta, Samantha Peninsa and Flossie Makeu and flashy Delilah Wave failed to give and push their opponents to limit to deny them a win and left them shell- shocked.

The West Papuan pair of Lanta and Peninsa still had plenty to offer to women’s football with their superb performance on the field.

Midfielder Peninsa continued to trouble Hekari offensive play while Lanta continued to find lapses and capitalized on the free kicks.

Lanta, who played a leading role, curved a classic shot for a header to narrow the score 3-2 before Makeu fired a shot from close range to level the match with 10 minutes left before full time.

Despite the draw, Hekari United should be credited for their improved performance compared with first round performance.

PNG striker Ara Midi with experience under her belt should step up another level to lead the young lasses in the competition.

She is also the only representative player in the Hekari outfit and her team mates wil be counting on her expertise.

Midfielder Lornah Tauloi tried desperately for her side but she lacked support from her team mates.

In the opening match, Mungkas defeated University Inter 1-0 to sit on the top of the table in the Ox & Palm WSNL ladder.

In Lae, competition front runners Poro beat PNG Power 3-1 while the match between Wau and Bara did not eventuate.

The Team from Wau did not travel to Lae for the games.
