Hekari progress to O-League final

The other finalist will be determined tomorrow when Auckland City meet Waitakere United in the Group A decider at Kiwitea Street, with Waitakere needing only a draw to claim top spot while Auckland need the win.
It was the imports who starred for Hekari today with goals coming from Fijian Pita Bolatoga and Solomon Islanders Henry Fa’arodo and Alick Maemae, who claimed two. Qualification for the final comes as just reward for the Papua New Guinea club champions after they finished one point behind 2009 finalists Koloale in Group B last season.
Meanwhile, Marist could only manage a consolation goal in the 78th minute through Commins Menapi and finished bottom of the group with one point from six matches.
In today’s other Group B match, Lautoka picked up three points with a 3-1 win over Tafea in Port Vila but the Fijians had to settle for second spot, just one point behind Hekari.
The first leg of the final will be played on Saturday 17 April with the return leg scheduled for Sunday 2 May.
