AS Pirae have been crowned Coupe du President winners following a 4-2 win over AS Tiare Hinano in the final this weekend.

Pirae, who had scored 29 goals in four games to reach the final, got the better of their rivals at the Stade de la FTF.

In a prequel to the upcoming OFC Champions League National Playoff, AS Vénus took on AS Pirae at Stade Pater with Vénus coming out on top. Pirae led through an early Matatia Paama goal before second-half finishes from Tauhiti Keck, Rainui Alexis Tze-Yu and Teanoi Tahau earned Vénus a place in the final-four.

AS Dragon, the team pushing Vénus all the way in Ligue 1 this season, are also through. Yannick Vero and Shawn Roonui Tinirauari’s goals were enough for a 2-1 triumph over AS Tamarii Punaruu.

AS Pueu required penalties to end AS Jeunesse Marquisienne’s impressive run whilst Ligue 2 leaders AS Taiarapu FC are also through after a 3-2 victory against AS Mira.

The two teams who will contest the final of Papua New Guinea’s Women’s National Soccer League have now been confirmed following two exciting semi-finals over the weekend.

Hekari United FC will face Bara FC after they overcame NCD FC and Mommers FC respectively.

Hekari United had to do things the hard way against their sister club. With the game level at 1-1 after 90 minutes neither side could find the winning goal in extra time, resulting in penalties. It was Hekari who then kept their cool to advance, winning 4-1 in the shoot-out.

They will meet Bara in the final, who had a much more comfortable semi-final fixture. The Northern Conference winners defeated Highlands side Mommers 7-1 in Port Moresby to secure their place in the final.

After a break from the action due to the OFC Champions League National Playoff between Hienghène Sport and SC Ne Drehu, the Super Ligue is back in New Caledonia.

Ne Drehu put the disappointment of missing out on the Champions League behind them in style, comfortably defeating Qanono Sport 5-0. Hienghene also enjoyed a victory, battling to a 1-0 triumph over AS Wetr.

However, Tiga Sport remain in the driving seat at the top of the table, beating AS Lössi to continue their unbeaten start to the campaign.

AS Magenta are fourth following a 3-1 win over bottom side JS Baco while AS Mont-Dore v Dumbéa FC and Horizon Patho v AS Kunié both ended as 1-1 draws.
