Koloale survives Marist onslaught

Koloale survived its final pool game on Saturday against Marist winning 2-1 and finishing on top of Pool A.

The game was pulsating from the blow of the whistle. The Lawson Tama crowd watched with excitement as the two giants of the DJ League displayed classy football.

Marist dominated the opening minutes and was unlucky not to have gone ahead with 3 goals. They had clear chances but could not convert them into goals.

Although Marist scored first Koloale showed composure and scored the equalizer few minutes before the break. After the break both teams sensing the urgency went on overdrive to the obvious delight of the crowd watching the match.

Chances were created at will for Marist with the likes of Abraham Iniga and Jack Samani beating their opponents with their one - two combination. However, luck was not on their side that afternoon. Koloale finished the game with a beautiful play of their own in the 70th minute to break the heart of Marist players and fans as they tried desperately to equalize. Koloale went out winners 2-1.

The finals of the National Club Championship are currently underway at the Lawson Tama stadium.
