Keep us posted on this sport as well...
On a very general view point, comparing PNG to other Pacific Nations, too many in-house fighting amongst the sports executives/administrators coupled together with favoritism and wantok system has brought this sport's code down to level where PNG is now struggling to bring back up...

TOTALLY AGREE...Support Soccer and make it National Sport. Rugby league is "Slap in the face" when news commentators or Rugby League Commentators make sarcastic comments to PNG and I do not know how this League became a National Sport.
This is a freaking Shame...
Support Soccer and lets make it National Sport.

Waves rolling with Central Coast FC
By WENDY KATUSELE
Gigira Laitepo Central Football Club have jumped into the top spot of the Telikom National Soccer League following their 2-1 victory over Petro Souths yesterday at the Bisini soccer grounds.
The Wesley Waiwai coached side now join champions Hekari United FC in the top rung of the competition ladder after the fourth round of the semi-professional challenge.
The match which was deferred from last weekend due to the visitors unable to board an Air Niugini flight into the capital city was brought forward to a mid week clash.
The official ladder: Hekari nine points, Central FC nine, Eastern Stars four, Bulolo United four, Besta PNGFA United FC three, Souths and Tukoko University yet to register a win.
In front of a very small crowd, Central were given a little bit of work to do with Souths backline up to the task but the efforts of Marshall Lori and Padro Ajakopa who worked overtime to contain Central as striker and import Reginald Davani found the net in the 37th minute for the opener.
Quick play at the start saw a good footwork by Naime Kepi beating two defenders to easily slam the ball to the corner of the goal mouth much to the delight of the supporters who came to cheer their boys on.
Kepiís goal came a minute after Davaniís goal to the surprise of the visitors who were still trying to get their act together.
Kepi went on to beg the man of the match award despite being replaced in the 84th minute.
Souths captain Ronald Sohuruís tireless efforts in coordinating play in the midfield landed him two points while Davani got the referees nod for a point for his efforts in helping his side to another consecutive victory.
Central went on the break leading 2-0 and that was it as they were denied more scoring opportunities from several brilliant saves by goalkeeper Jacob Senat.
Davani had two golden opportunities with a one on one situation with the goalkeeper but the opportunities went begging.
Souths goal in the 53rd minute came from hard trier and former Hekari United player Manta Kavoe to bridge the scoreline.
The visitors had the chance in the 84th minute when Central were left one player short on the paddock when international goalkeeper David Aua was given a red card for back chatting the referee.
Reserve goalkeeper Joshua Moha had to be brought in to replace Kepi to move into the goal mouth but that was it as Central continued to defend until the final whistle.
