Madang Defeat Lahi

Having had a tough encounter in both their pool matches and fighting their way through to the qualifying finals, Lahi would have a tough assignment in facing hosts and BESTA Cup semi finalists from 2015, Madang

Lahi were in trouble within the early stages of the match, with Tia Mark brought off after a challenge, as Madang used their home advantage to dominate possession.

Hekari defender Jeremy Yasasa, playing up front for the visitors, was marked well, with his goals in both the quarter and semi finals proving his attacking prowess

Fellow Hekari teammate Emmanuel Airem, playing at the opposite end, would have the first attacking chance, firing a weak left shot.

Madang would continue to threaten and when Airem finally got a shot off , it was straight at the keeper. Zaun Tupani though would score for LAHI and open the scoring, after a mishap in Madang’s defence.

However, two minutes later Madang had a chance following a handball inside the penalty area, with Neil Hans stepping inside to tap in the equaliser.

Airem bringing the local supporters to their feet, scored again to take Madang out to a 2-1 lead, before he would do the same in the second stanza to see Madang home as 3-1 victors.
