Amical and Tafea book a spot in the TVL Cup finals

Amical FC and Tafea FC have both booked a spot in the Telecom Vanuatu (TVL) Cup final after respective wins over the weekend.

Amical FC got away with a 2-0 win over new comers Shepherds United FC thanks to a first half Robert Yelou goal and a second half super sub Jerry Shem's goal.

Shepherds had their moments in the game but failed to capitalize on their numerous chances.

The game was a replay of the Independence Cup which saw Shepherds playing in their first ever final in the premier division after a huge first division success, but it was Amical whom the eventual winners were coming out with a close 3-2 win.

Other semi final match saw Tafea claiming a 2-1 narrow victory over Spirit 08.

Spirit got into the score sheet ahead of Tafea with a superb Robert Tasso goal but failed to keep the momentum going and saw Tafea coming from behind thanks to Francois Sakama and Silas Namatak goals at the end of the second half to steal the victory from Spirit.

It was in the end experience versus youth with Tafea fielding an experienced side packed with national reps to come out and win the game for Tafea.

Port Vila stadium saw again a record number of crowds packing the stadium.

The Telecom Vanuatu (TVL) final will be classic with the new champions Amical FC taking on the former champions Tafea FC this Saturday at Port Vila Stadium.
