Academy makes controversial win

Vanuatu Academy Football team comprising mainly of Under 17 players from the local Academy have secured their first win in the Port Vila Football League Premier TVL Cup against new comers Ifira Black Birds last weekend.


A superb 35 meters Brian Kaltak free kick and Yvon Wilson goal sealed the victory for the young Academy side.


Ifira had a goal in but it wasn't enough for the Academy side to grab the controversial victory against Ifira.


Academy dominated throughout the game but Ifira defender Andrew Chichirua led a solid defense which at times proved an obstacle to the Academy side.


At half time saw a goalless game.


It was late into the second period when Academy's Brian Kaltak sent a screamer from a 35 meter free kick into the right hand side of the Ifira goal which sent the keeper the opposite direction.


Ifira then replied with a goal to get back into the game but couldn't hold their defense together when in the dying minutes of the game Yvon Wilson got one back for Shepherds to secure the first ever victory for Academy in the TVL Cup tourney.


During the second period 3 Ifira players were sent off with red cards.


Academy will take on former champions Tafea FC this weekend and will look to put on a similar game to last weekend's.
