THE country’s top tier football league, the Telekom S-league (TSL) will wrap up its 2021 season this weekend at Lawson Tama Stadium with the final six matches.
Real Kakamora FC and Kula FC will kick off Match Week 21’s matches at 12pm this Saturday.
Kakamora is aiming to finish in the top four, however, were unfortunate to do so following their 1-0 defeat to Laugu two weeks ago which gave Henderson Eels the advantage to secure the fourth spot.
Kula FC has been struggling since the start of the season despite changes in players during the Transfer Window and the ousting of their former head coach, Alick Collins.
Sitting at the bottom of the table for most of the season, Kula is aiming to at least extend their points to nine with a win and seven points should they finish off with a draw.
The second match on Saturday will feature KOSSA FC and Southern United FC at 2pm.
KOSSA made a very slow start to the TSL, suffering seven consecutive defeats in round one of the season.
Their second round campaign is much better with the inclusion of new players and a change in coaching staff.
They are currently on the seventh spot with 27 points.
Southern United sits at the tenth spot with 16 points.
Henderson Eels will take on Honiara City FC for the final game at 4pm on Saturday.
Since joining the TSL competition, Eels has never won against Honiara City.
Having already secured the fourth spot, Eels is not prepared to give away their final match and they will be aiming to break the spell and register their first win against City.
City is on the eleventh place with 15 points and has the chance of moving up by a spot if they win and Southern United loses to KOSSA.
Sunday’s matches are the biggest and must see matches which comprise of the two of the TSL title contenders.
The 12pm match will see Vfresh Isabel United taking on Laugu FC.
Isabel United has the chance to finish sixth if they win the match with the hope of Kula FC beating Real Kakamora FC.
Both United and Kakamora have 31 points each which is only differentiated by their goal differences.
Sunday’s 2pm clash is a decider for Solomon Warriors FC to keep their hopes of winning this season’s title.
If they defeat Waneagu they will go top with 49 points.
However, they will have to wait for the outcome of the season’s final match between current leaders Central Coast FC and Marist FC at 4pm.
A defeat or draw for Coast will see them get their hands on their seventh TSL trophy.
In order to maintain the top spot, Coast needs nothing less than a win. A win for them will see the youthful Central Coast FC side hoisting the TSL title for the first time. This will be something historic for the club, after competing just two seasons in the country’s top tier football league.
