Off The Map

Off the Map is a medical drama that follows the lives of the people who put their lives into the running of a non-profit hospital in the wilds of South America.

 

In need of more doctors, the founding doctor, Dr. Ben Keeton (Martin Henderson), advertises for medical residents to finish out their residencies in his hospital, in hopes of inspiring at least one person to stay on. Out of hundreds of applicants, he picks three.

 

Dr. Mina Minard (Mamie Gummer) is an urban doctor who misdiagnosed a patient which consequently led to his untimely death. Dr. Lily Brenner (Caroline Dhavernas) is an ER doctor who lost her boyfriend under her own scalpel. And Dr. Tommy Fuller (Zach Gilford) is a bright plastic surgeon who is satisfied with just getting by.

 

Together, they form an unlikely bond as the new kids on the block. During the first season, we watch as Dr. Minard slowly lowers the walls she had erected around herself prior to arrival. Dr. Brenner discovers that she is still a competent doctor, and Dr. Fuller learns the importance of being earnest.

 

But the real juice is in the stories that were playing out long before their arrival. Dr. Keeton has a deep dark secret and Dr. Otis Cole (Jason George) is a recovering addict. Emotions run deep as hope, love, and inspiration play out in the least likely of places!

Eastern Stars with new coach, Trevor Ire, who was a former NSL Player and PNG Rep, came on board with optimism to provide new prospects for the team. 

 

Oro football club on the other hand is banking on raw talent. Garry Moka and Sammy Campbell Misirait from Cosmos Football Club who took part in the Port Moresby Super League competition were outstanding for Oro. Both players showed class at defence and strike.

 

Charlie Paranda managed to find the back of the net in 42nd minutes into half time, having Oro comfortably leading. 

 

Eastern Stars however, were able to equalize through the second half with brilliant a strike by forward, Richard Sios.  

 

Both teams have bolstered their respective team rosters in the hopes of ending Hekari FCs reign as PNGs football kings

 

Eastern Stars managed a goal, winning the match at 2 points to 1 at the final hooter.

 

The Oro football club will need to pick up on the pace of preparation. This match is used as a trial to select a final 20- man squad. The club has lost some prominent players to other clubs and will now heavily rely on the youngsters.
