Kiwi FC have qualified for the Oceania Champions League football competition after winning the OFC Preliminary tournament in Rarotonga.
The Samoa club champions came from a goal down to thrash Tonga's Veitongo FC 7-1 yesterday to finish with maximum points from three games, three points clear of Cook Islands champions Tupapa Maraerenga, who thumped Utulei Youth from American Samoa 9-1.
Kiwi now join Nadi FC from Fiji, AS Magenta of New Caledonia and Tahiti's AS Tefana in Group C for the OFC Champions League, which takes place in Auckland in April.
Coach Martin Tamasese said it was pleasing to see his side get through the match after a slow start which saw them go down a goal after 23 minutes.
Kiwi also won the Preliminary tournament two years ago.
