Defending TSL champions, Solomon Warriors FC remain at the top of the TSL tally and are in the driving seat to defend their title after a two-all draw with title challengers Henderson Eels at Lawson Tama on Saturday.
It was a tough and equally fought match as Warriors looks to maintain their lead and Henderson Eels to equal Warriors in points.
Raphael Lea’i broke the deadlock early in the first half to give his side the lead before evergreen forward Benjamin Totori replied with a close-range finish deep into the first half for Warriors.
Eels hit back to restore the lead with their second goal by Tutizama Tanito.
