42′ The Solomon Islanders have another chance to get back on level terms but Dennis IFUNAOA drags his shot wide when he might have been better served to pick out a team mate

25′ Raymond GUNEMBA is played into the box but Warriors goalkeeper TALO does well to hold onto his cross-come-shot
23′ Warriors have a good opportunity to take the lead when DAUDAU fizzes in a great low cross but no team mate can get a touch to it

11′ Gibson DAUDAU is set up for a strike just inside the Lae box but completely mis-hits his effort
9′ The rain has cleared in the last five or so minutes, hopefully the pitch will soon begin to dry up

3′ GOAL!!! Solomon Warriors 0 – 1 Lae City Dwellers: Lae take the lead when a intended cross from captain Raymond GUNEMBA finds its way inside TALO’s near post
1′ Nigel DABINYABA has an early chance for Lae after breaking down the left, Warriors goalkeeper Anthony TALO spills it but his defence bails him out to clear
1′ The pitch is still very soggy underfoot so a passing game is going to be difficult
