OFC Champions League: It's An All-Kiwi Final

The semifinal round of the OFC Champions League concluded on Sunday with two games.

At Auckland, New Zealand:

Emiliano Tade (33') and Joao Moreira (64') each scored once as Auckland City registered a second 2-0 victory over AS Tefana, this time at home, and ousted the Tahitian club 4-0 on aggregate.

At Wellington, New Zealand:

Joel Stevens scored twice (7', 73') as Team Wellington, after battling to a 2-2 road deadlock last weekend, annihilated AS Magenta 7-1 at home in game two and finished off the club from New Caledonia 9-3 on aggregate.

Auckland City will host Team Wellington in the opening match of the two-game final on April 29-30, with the return match to be played in New Zealand's capital city on May 6-7, with the winner to play in December's FIFA Club World Cup, set to take place in the United Arab Emirates.
