Tafea and Amicale clashed in the Ken Memorial Cup

The two current powerful clubs in the Port Vila Football Association (PVFA), Tafea F.C. and Amicale F.C. who are in Pool 2 of the Ken Memorial Cup clashed at the Port Vila Municipal Stadium last evening.

The 2 clubs are competing with 8 other teams in the past 4 days to advance towards to finals of the Ken Memorial Cup.

The Ken Memorial Cup tournament was established in honour of Late Ken Masauvakalo, a national football star and hero who passed away last month in his home village of Mele, South Efate.

Many fans from both clubs and those who were keen to watch the new Amicale line-up, packed the grand-stand last evening with so many expectations only to watched it end with a draw.

Amicale imports have displayed a superb ball work only to find the Tafea defence hard to break with Freddy Vava and his boys tightened their barriers the full game.

Tafea had some good chances in the second half of the game when national striker Etienne Mermer blasted a distance shot at the Amicale goal keeper only to find it diverted wide.

Solomon Islands international player, Batram Suri had a chance in the last minutes of the game to accomplish Amicale's hope when he had a good control of the ball from the right but only to find it shot over the crossbar.

The match got difficult in some instances for FIFA referee Mr. Bruce George to handle in the last 30 minutes, but then it all ended with a draw.

The draw placed Tafea F.C. with 4 points leading the table in Pool B.
