School league resumes tomorrow
SAINT John’s Community High school escape defeat yesterday to share the spoils with Tuvaruhu School in the Honiara Football Association (HFA) high school league.
Second half substitute Clement M. found the equalizer for St John from a free kick in the 47minute after team mate Wasi was chopped inches from the penalty box.
But it was Tuvaruhu who grabbed the opening goal through Samson Hanianoe in the 19 minute but saw Alex T. equalizing for St John 42 minutes into the first half.
Team Captain Junior Laka gave Tuvaruhu the lead 66 minutes into the second half but saw Clement steering St John from defeat, curling a wicked right foot free kick to see the match end in a 2-2 draw.
“This result gives us encouragement. It was our game, ours for the taking unfortunately it ended in a draw which is a good result for us,” St Johns’ team captain Teddy Stanley said.
“We are a bit disappointed not securing all three points but still a draw is a very good result for us. From here we move on and will work extra harder for our remaining matches,” Tuvaruhu team captain Junior Laki said.
Meanwhile results from yesterday’s other game saw King George Sixth School defeating Burns Creek four goals to one.
