Fiji, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea have all reached the 2018 Oceania Women’s Nations Cup semi-finals with a game to spare.
Papua New Guinea progressed to the semi-finals after a 6-2 victory over hosts New Caledonia, Marie Kaipu featuring with a five-goal haul.
Wednesday’s other Group A fixture was a ten-goal thriller as Tahiti drew 5–5 with Samoa. Carole Teotahi hit a hat-trick for Tahiti but so did Sina Sataraka for Samoa, two of those in the last dozen minutes to rescue a point.
New Caledonia need a win against Samoa on Saturday to be sure of completing the semi-final line-up.
New Zealand hit Cook Islands for six, including an Emma Rolston brace, to ensure they progress from Group B.
Fiji are also through having thrashed Tonga 12-0, five goals coming from Cema Nasau and a hat-trick by Luisa Tamanitoakula.
The eventual winners of the tournament qualify for net year’s World Cup finals.
