Hekari On Violence

The management of the Hekari United has expressed disappointment over the attack by Lae supporters on Hekari players in yesterday’s grand final match.

Team manager, Vonnie Kapi Nato told EMTV that this was  the first grand final that didn’t work out well and it’s not good.

Hekari United was leading three goals to nil when missiles were thrown at Hekari players.

The National Soccer League Grandfinal in Lae was mound by missile-throwing supporters.

The game ended prematurely.

Police and security personnel were outnumbered and could not control the crowd of about 1000 plus people.

Hekari begged a goal from Nigel Dabinyaba right on half-time to lead Lae one-nil into the break.

Hekari returned in the second half and added another goal to comfortably lead the game.

However a referee decision on sending off Lae FC playmaker and Captain Cole Liam and a third Hekari goal from Raymond Gunemba made the rowd to be rowdy.

The Hekari goalkeeper was the first to be attacked and later other players.

The game was called off and Hekari players were escorted out of the stadium.

Presentation was also cancelled with the NSL management yet to confirm when official results will be published.
