Solomon Islands beats Tahiti 5-1
Benjamin Totori scored a double for the Solomon Islands, both goals coming in the first half. While Tahiti is resigned to the bottom of the Group B standings, it has a chance to record its first win on Saturday in the group fourth round stage when it faces Tonga, another team without a win thus far. The Tongans will be eyeing that match as its chance to rectify the imbalance which sees 36 goals already scored against them.
The remaining matches for the Solomon Islands are a tough prospect, facing Vanuatu next then New Zealand next Monday in the last round. They have a slim chance of taking the top spot in Group B but need to win both their remaining games handsomely and rely on other outcomes for the remaining fixtures.
