Ref sends 6 players off in Oceania tournament match

Six players were sent off during a soccer match between Fiji's Nadi FA and Samoa's Kiwi FC at the Oceania Football Confederation's Champions League tournament in Auckland on Monday.

Both teams were left with eight players as referee George Time of the Solomon Islands showed six red cards in a match won 4-3 by Nadi with a goal in the seventh minute of stoppage time.

Desmond Faauiaso of Kiwi and Waisake Tabucava of Nadi were the first players to go off after a clash in the 41st. Nadi goalkeeper Vereti Dickson and Kiwi's Lionel Taylor were dismissed 10 minutes before fulltime and Lawrie Letutusa followed in the 87th minute.

Napolioni Qasevakatini of Nadi was the last player sent off deep into stoppage time.

Anesh Khem scored all four Nadi goals.
