2016 OFC U-17 Women's Championship

Kig’s double takes PNG U17 to OFC final

The late goal at extra time was scored by Robertlynn Kig who also scored PNG’s first goal.

PNG was the first to score when Kig floated home a free kick into the top corner of the goal and found the net four minutes into the game.

New Caledonia struggled to escape PNG’s defensive half but couldn’t get past the strong backline as they attempted to score on several occasions.

PNG U17 coach strengthens defence

Coach Margaret Aka says it was frustrating that they couldn’t get the win against Fiji because they led the game twice and really should have been able to hold them out.

“Our defence has been a bit of a problem the last two games so that is something we worked on ahead of the game with New Caledonia.

“New Caledonia brings plenty in attack, so limiting that will be vital,” Aka said.

New Caledonia coach Matthieu Delcroix says defense is also their main focus against a fast and efficient Papua New Guinea attacking unit.
