SOLOMON Islands international Tutizama Tanito gets off the mark as he scored in his OFC Champions League debut for Lae City Dwellers last Saturday in Port Vila, Vanuatu.

Tutizama managed to put his name on the score sheet as Lae City Dwellers thrashed Tupapa Maraerenga 7-2 in the opening match of the OFC Champions League Group A.

He teamed up perfectly upfront in a three man attack alongside Papua New Guinea internationals Raymond Gunemba and Nigel Dabinyaba.

Former Henderson Eels striker Gunemba bagged four goals as he leads the golden boot race on match day one.

His compatriot Dabinyaba scored a brace and Tutizama completes the front trio scoring spree.

Tutizama told Sunday Sports he is pleased to score on his debut for Lae City in the O-League.

He stressed the win give them confidence as two tough matches against Nalkutan FC and Ba FC awaits in Group A.

Another Solomon Islander, Andrew Rarangia also made his debut in the OFC Champions League last Saturday.

He was instrumental in defence as Lae City Dwellers concede a single goal from the spot via a penalty.

 Lae City Dwellers FC will play its second match against Fijian heavyweights Ba on Tuesday.
