Lae taught a lesson at home by victorious Hekari

In front of a boisterous partisan crowd at the Sir Ignatius Kilage Stadium, the defending champions saw off the challenge from an enthusiastic home side and cemented the minor premiership in the process.
With police presence and that of the visiting Enga Mioks rugby league team, the Red paced themselves well to dismantle Lae and dent the Morobean’s playoff hopes.
The first half was a hard but fair tussle with neither side making headway until the 34th minute when Hekari’s Joachim Waroi scored for the visitors for a 1-0 halftime lead.
Ten minutes into the second half saw striker Kema Jack blast in Hekari’s second goal to have the home side on the ropes.
The match seesawed with strikers from both ends unlucky with their shots as Lae tried to get on the board.
Lae, coming off a bye and spoting some changes to their playing and coaching personnel, were not able to trouble Hekari’s goal and that was a worry for fans.
Jean Kaltack fired the last shot for Hekari in the 64th minute to take their lead to 3-0 which also saw dejected Lae fans leaving the stadium well before full time.
Lae scored a consolation goal late in the match through Emmanuel Yawi. Although the score line was not as the 5-0 dealt to Oro FC last week, Hekari look unstoppable.
