As the 2014 National Soccer League Competition fast approaches, two Port Moresby-based franchises, Eastern Stars and Oro Football Club, took to the soccer field in a friendly, yet important match that will determine the final Squads.
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.
