Madang FC beaten 5-0 by AS Magenta

Madang FC were given a 5-0 beating at the hands of New Caledonia’s AS Magenta in the last Pool A match of the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) Champions League on Friday at Stade Numa Daly.

AS Magenta’s Nicolas Marin booted the first and only goal of the first half from a penalty kick in the 25th minute to give the home side a 1-0 lead.

The flood gates opened up in the second half starting from the 60 minute mark when Shene Jean Francois Welepane latched onto a cross from Marin to slot the ball past Madang’s Glen Agat.

AS Magenta scored again in the 69th and 73rd minute before finishing it off with a powerful strike from Joseph Athale that beat Agat in the 85th minute and cap off an easy win.

In the other pool A match yesterday, AS Central Sport beat Lupe Ole Soaga 3-0.

The 5-0 win allowed AS Magenta to become the first team to qualify for the OFC Champions League semi-finals.

First timers to the Champions League, Madang FC have registered one win from three games played.
