Toti City Dwellers FC

Toti City Dwellers go down to Auckland City

The Group D winners hosted the Group A runners-up on the afternoon of April 5th.

Both sides were equally matched in the first 20 minutes, defending and making defenders rush to secure their goal area.

The tug-of-war ended when Auckland City’s David Browne curved a through ball into the visitors’ net.

The Lae boys, determined to make the hosts work, kept them at bay until the half time whistle.

A return from break saw the elusive Browne dribble around Toti City defenders – Valentine Nelson and Mosie Milubwa – to double his team’s tally.

Toti City Dwellers in high spirits

Upon arrival yesterday at the Jackson’s International Airport, coach Peter Gunemba said making it to the quarter finals is a success story for the team.

Toti City Dwellers FC, formerly known as the Lae City Dwellers, were undefeated in their Group A matches, registering one win and two draws at Stade Yoshida in New Caledonia. 

They finished two points behind group leaders and hosts, Hienghene.

Toti City coach Peter Gunemba said the toughest teams were pooled in Group A, and the high competition pushed his boys beyond their limits.
