Motohiro Kaneshiro of Sea-Hawks moves ahead with the ball as Murital Olaide Oladeni of Red Star looks on.


A goal in each half, enabled Sea Hawks to pull off a close 2 goals to 1 win over Red Star in the inter club soccer encounter played for the inaugural Super League Championship at Sugathadasa Stadium yesterday.

Sea-Hawks who came in to this game with a must win situation to remain in contention for the Championship, were fortunate enough to keep their hopes alive with a goal scored in the dying stages of the game, after being tied at 1-all at the breather.

Red Star drew first blood and surged ahead by breaking the deadlock in the 15th minute of the first half, when their playmaker Mohamed Rahuman, after receiving a pass from the left flank, penetrated the rival defense to power a 20-metre kick, which the goalkeeper had no chance of saving. With this goal Rahuman’s individual goal tally has increased to eight and continues to remain as the highest goal scorer of the tournament.

On the brink of half time (in extra time), Sea Hawks Japanese player Motohiro Kaneshiro equalised the score firing in a power packed kick to go for lemons with a 1-all scoreline. With this goal Kaneshiro scored his fourth goal of the tournament to become the fifth highest goal scorer so far.

After the turn around, both sides played an open game initiating some teasing moves, anticipating to increase their goal tally. Both teams eventually missed out on many scoring opportunities due to lapses on the part of the strikers who failed to capitalise on chances on offer by not putting the finishing touches. After some anxious moments in extra time, Danushka Madusanka sealed the game for the winners with a spectacular goal, after which referee Dilan Perera blew the full-time whistle. With this win they occupied the top position in the points table with 16 points collected from seven matches with five wins.
