Fenedy fires team to New Caledonia win

The friendly match at Port Vila Stadium was arranged as part of each side’s preparations for upcoming competitions. Amicale are readying themselves for the second half of their 2011 O-League challenge while New Caledonia are working towards the Pacific Games, to be held in Noumea during August.
The visitors, who are defending champions of the Pacific Games football tournament after winning the 2008 event, will also take on the Vanuatu national team on Monday at 4pm local time.
They will hope to avoid another defeat following the disappointing loss to Amicale.
Masauvakalo put his side in front but New Caledonia hit back through Michel Hmae to make it 1-1 at the break. Amicale brought on Saimata Chillia and Bisili Lenson in the second spell and the changes helped them earn the upper hand.
They went ahead again when Masauvakalo finished off a great pass from Solomon Islands star Jack Wetney, before fellow Solomon Islander Alick Maemae wrapped up the scoring with a strike from the penalty spot to make it 3-1.
Amicale team manager Andrew Leong is full of praise for Masauvakalo and says his increased familiarity with others in the side has helped his game a lot.
“Fenedy was great last year and is great this year too but the team is helping him. He now knows his teammates better,” Leong says.
In a match played as the curtain raiser to the main game, Tafea dished out a comprehensive 10-1 defeat to Lifou.
Things do not get any easier for Lifou as they meet Amicale on Tuesday from 4pm local time, while Tafea’s next match is an intriguing clash with Amicale on Saturday.
