Solomon Warriors overcome a determined Laugu United on the final match day of the S-League in 2019 at Lawson Tama to go three points clear at the top and secure a spot in next year’s OFC Champions League.
Vanuatu international midfielder John Alick scored in the first minute of the encounter to help secure maximum points for the defending champions.
Laugu had some good opportunities to score but an experienced Warriors defence kept them at bay.
Warriors now have 38 points and a game in hand against FC Guadalcanal when the league resumes in 2020.
Title challenger Henderson Eels, with 35 points, have also ensured they’ll appear in the OFC Champions League 2020. Their final match is against Real Kakamora in their final league match in early 2020.
Should the standings remain as they are at the end of 2019, as S-League champions Solomon Warriors would join Group C alongside AS Magenta, Tiare Tahiti and the qualifier runners-up.
While Henderson Eels would head to Vanuatu to compete with Malampa Revivors, Lae City FC and Ba FC.
