MUNGKAS women beat Guria 2-1 to win the Port Moresby Soccer Association women’s premier division at Bisini Park on Saturday.
Mungkas women scooped up K2500 and shield while Guria were rewarded with a trophy and K1000 prize money.
Mungkas captain Jessica Nawi said after the match that winning was all they had been talking about while in camp and made it happen on Saturday.
“We were prepared for it and coach Robert Sabadi was responsible for all the finishing touches in our preparation and he should be credited for the win,” Nawi said.
Sabadi said Mungkas were the 2013 champions of PMSA and worked hard to reclaim the title three seasons later.
“They (players) prepared and work hard for it and did it their own way to maintain that,” he said.
Both sides have several current and former international players but Mungkas’ fast and free flow attacking set the pace of the game.
Mungkas were the first to hit the net on the 12th minute through Lavinia Hola.
It was an even tussle in the midday heat but in the 23rd minute, Mary Valu’s push her side further ahead with 2-0 lead. Mungkas had players like Fatima Rama, Claire Tsuga, Damaris Serubi, Dora Wibeawa, Lavina Hola, Gloria Leali and Alisandra Elijah dominating the park.
Guria’s skipper Esther Kurabi, Bertha Yapi, Samantha Peninsa and Katherine Horis played their guts out breaking into Mungkas box but could not turn it into point.
