Lion Heart, Utulei 1 & 2 in standings, faceoff Saturday

Lion Heart is coming off of a huge, 3-2 win over 2013 champions FC SKBC while Utulei Youth retained their Division 1, FFAS National Cup in a 3-1 win over PanSa.
Lion Heart is one goal ahead of Utulei Youth in the goals differential (6-5) tiebreaker as both teams have similar records of 3-0.
SKBC (1-2) falls to third place while Vaiala Tongan A (1-2), idle over the weekend, sits at No. 4 with PanSa (0-4) rounding out the standings at No. 5.
Sam Kome blasted a shot from inside the penalty area just seconds before the horn went off to signify the end of the match in what was a very tough game from start to finish.
Kome came out the hero with two goals scored, an equalizer and the game-winner.
Melfi Alsheri also scored twice for FC SKBC.
Alsheri scored 20 minutes into the first half only to see Michael Punefu of Lion Heart equalize five minutes before the half.
Alsheri put his team up with a beautiful header in the early minutes of the second half before Kome’s brace put the game away for the league’s top team.
Kaleopa Siligi completed a hat trick with a brilliant goal by making the defenders dance back and forth to his great dribbling skills before finding the tiniest of spaces in between the goalie and back of the net on the near post.
His first two goals came on PKs with the second awarded to Utulei after a defender pulled him down after a nutmeg by Siligi in the second half.
Utulei Youth will need all his skills to retain the Cup and remain unbeaten as they take on a very strong team in Lion Heart this coming Saturday.
