After a sour defeat yesterday in their clash with Besta FC, Momase FC will meet Southern Strikers on Wednesday in washouts while Besta will wait for their turn to take on Strikers on Saturday in round 3 here in Port Moresby.
Defending Champs Toti City Dwellers look to continue their good form in their meet with following last week’s closure of the Bisini sporting facility here in Port Moresby which resulted in a reschedule of the NSL round 1 match between Southern Strikers and Besta, round 2 of the competition went smoothly yesterday.
Round three will continue next weekend, again in Lae, Madang and Port Moresby.
This weekend’s results saw strong plays from all 6 teams who took the field.
Toti City Dwellers proved to still have the flare from last season, driving Buang FC up the wall, 8 – 1 in Lae yesterday.
Momase FC, on the other hand, are yet to put on their best performance, having lost their match yesterday to Besta 3-1.
This Wednesday’s match will see them in washouts against Southern Strikers.
Meanwhile, Madang FC has some big names this season, in the likes of PNG Skipper Michael Foster, along with Internationals Abel Redenut and Charles Lepani.
Foster and Redenut arrived in Madang a few days ago, and have joined their new team, while Lepani is expected to arrive in Madang the coming days.
This is expected to boost performance for the Madang side, and MFC Board member Conrad Wadunah told EMTV Sports that even the local boys in the team are also on par.
“After giving Toti Dwellers a run for their money last season until the final where they fell short of the title, the Madang outfit are looking at two strong competitions this year; Besta and Toti Dwellers,” said Wadunah.
The competition itself is now down to 7 teams with the Manus staying out this season Madang FC in Lae.
