Rapatona and Gigira end match scoreless

PKA Rapatona FC and Gigira Laitepo have earned a point each after both teams failed to score, finishing in a nil-all draw today at Bisini Soccer Ground, Port Moresby.

It was a tough encounter as both teams struggled throughout the game but they both had the advantage of a strong backline.

This was the first time they have ever met so the pace in the first half was slow as they got used to each other’s game.

Rapatona picked up speed in the second half but missed an opportunity five minutes into the second half when a hand ball was awarded by the referee.

Despite Rapatona officials’ complaint against the referee’s call which stopped the match for about ten minutes, the referee stood by his decision and continued the game. 

Half way through the second half the pressure started to build and the tension grew among the players as they made attempts to score but failed until the whistle blew at full time nil-all.

Man of the Match was awarded to Rapatona striker Patrick Aisa for an outstanding game.

In the other match, Besta PNG United lost to Admiralty FC 3-0.
