Jan. 30, 2009 – The Central Link's Howie Williams converted a penalty kick in the first half of extra time as the Central Link defeated the Waitikubuli 2-1 in the 'Best of the Rest' tournament on Thursday night at the Lionel Roberts Stadium. It was the second straight victory for the Link, who defeated the Laraza 1-0 on Tuesday. The Waitikubuli took the early lead when David Sorhaindo scored. The Link's Franklyn Victor scored the equalizer before the half. The Waitikubuli had previously defeated the Raymix 2-0 this past Tuesday.
