Warriors seal MSC title

The final match of the week-long competition was held at Port Vila Stadium on Saturday between the two domestic powerhouses.
James Naka scored a first half penalty to give the hosts the lead, but it wasn’t enough to secure the title for Amicale as Denis Ifunaoa hit back twice to give his side the victory and the spoils.
Solomon Warriors coach Moses Toata, who was also celebrating his 40th birthday, was a very happy man on Saturday.
“I don’t know what to say other than thank you to my players for displaying an outstanding performance against the Vanuatu club champions,” he said.
“Our win over Amicale today is like a special present on my birthday. This is a great tournament and I just wish we could have the clubs from Fiji, New Caledonia and Papua New Guinea taking part next year.”
Four clubs took part in the second edition of the Melanesian Super Cup; defending champions Solomon Warriors and Western United FC from Solomon Islands and Vanuatu club champions Amicale FC who were joined by Erakor Golden Star FC.
Tournament coordinator Bong Shem says the competiton is organised by Black Pacific Events with the assistance of the Vanuatu Football Federation and Port Vila Football Association, who hosted this year’s edition.
