Solomon Islands Wins First Match at OFC Women's Nations Cup

Solomon Islands' has won its first match at the OFC Women's Nations Cup, and in doing so jotted down their biggest ever victory at senior women's level.

The 4-0 result beats their previous largest winning margin of 3-0 over American Samoa in 2007.

Ileen Pegi was the star of the show with two goals while Ella Misibini and Betty Maenu'u also found the net.

"It's a good win for us and a great start to the tournament," Coach Timothy Inifiri says.

"It's too early to say anything but we are looking forward to playing the other teams in our group. We have seen how Papua New Guinea played in the other match today and will work on how to counter them in Saturday's game."

Attention turns to Group A again tomorrow when Tahiti meet Vanuatu at 1pm and Cook Islands face New Zealand at 3.30pm. Both matches take place on the oval ground at North Harbour Stadium.
