The first ever Solrais Women’s Premier League has just finished in the Solomon Islands, and it was a narrow title win for RSIPF Royals.
The title battle went down to the final matchday, where Royals met Naha.
RSIPF Royals were top of the table, with a two point lead over Naha, who could snatch the league title with a win.
