Poro the LFA champs

first_imgThey defended their title well and the trophy will back to the Papua Compound swamps for the second time.They beat arch – rivals City United 4-2 in a penalty shoot – out after going into 1 – all during regular time.Striker Raymond Gunemba’s header ten minutes into full time forced the game into extra time.Gunemba, earlier on had strained his left leg but slotted into the game as a specialist netted the ball after a good workout by his strike partner and skipper Nigel Dabinyaba.Both teams played for 30 minutes each way due to time mismanagement as the earlier games didn’t play on their scheduled time.The main game which was supposed to start at 3pm was delayed by an hour.Both teams have successfully bid for the National Soccer League (NSL) and 12 other  teams around the country for the November 21st commencement.City United will be playing under the banner of Welgris City United and Poro will be known as the Lae City Dwellers.While United is a newcomer, Dwellers were the NSL premiers and will return to the competition to defend their title.last_img
