Setting things straight
With Papua New Guinea losing their first match and Samoa coming away with a draw in theirs', the clash between both teams was an attempt to set things straight and get their respective campaigns back on track. It was a tough match as both teams were able to match the others skills. But it was evident by the end that the Papuans wanted the win more than the Samoans did, as the former were able to run in 4 unanswered goals.
PNG 4- Samoa 0
Caroline Kahai, the PNG Team Manager, said that her girls did exceptionally well. “We were hoping for more than that but Samoa was also tough in there,” said Kahai.
Both sides will be going against the hosts tomorrow with PNG taking on the Fiji Under 23 at 9:00a.m and Samoa playing Fiji at 3:00p.m.
Goals: PNG 4(Julienne Naron- 11th; Terry Kiapin- 16th; Kari Raurela- 47th; Monica Wadi- 61st) Samoa 0
