AS PTT have turned in a brilliant second half performance to beat Vanuatu’s UNV FC 7-2 and make it two wins from as many games at the OFC Futsal Men’s Champions League in New Caledonia.

The hosts went 2-1 down a couple of minutes into the second half after a superb finish from UNV’s Jayson Timatua.

But Michael Wassin’s side responded in superb fashion, hitting back almost immediately. First Richard Forrest blasted in the equaliser in the 24th minute and before UNV had a chance to regain their composure, AS PTT captain James Namuli’s thunderbolt fired them in front. Emmanuel Hmaen added a fourth before Namuli scored his second and Forrest fired in two more for a hat-trick late on to secure an emphatic win.

Earlier AS PTT made a terrific start with Richard Wainebengo opening the scoring in the fourth minute.

A minute later Alex Wilkins should have equalised, but he failed to control when clear on goal. A quick turn and shot from Emmanuel Hmaen forced a reflex save out of Sterry Tor in the UNV FC goal as AS PTT pressed for a second.

UNV FC were always a threat on the break and Paul Nalau forced a corner off a strong shot before captain Rene Bahormal levelled the scores with a powerful right foot effort with just over four minutes remaining in the opening stanza.

Tor made a diving save to deny Frederic Schwartz a shot on goal late in the half and they went to the break deadlocked.
