Top team challenges for cup in women’s division

The other tough match features No. 3 Utulei Youth taking on No. 4 PanSa as all top four teams of the bracket take on one another.
All four teams are tied with 2-0 records each but are in their current standings based on each team’s difference in goals scored and goals against — Black Roses (15), Kiwi Soccers (11), Utulei Youth (8) and PanSa (3).
Teams from 5-8 are the Tafuna Jets, Taputimu Youth, Pago youth and Green Bay while the bottom three teams are Ilaoa & To’omata, Lion Heart and Vaiala Tongan.
The matches for Aug. 25 are PanSa vs. Utulei and Pago Youth vs. Vaiala Tongan at 9:40 a.m.; Ilaoa & To’omata vs. Tafuna Jets and Lion Heart vs. Green Bay at 10:40 a.m.; Kiwi Soccers vs. Black Roses at 1:10 p.m.
This is a game featuring young, up and coming stars (Kiwi) against established and some of the best female players on island.
It is also a tough one for the FFAS Technical Department in picking a favorite as both are evenly matched.
Kiwi’s young players are some of the best in high school such as Ruby Fia, JJ Sasala, twins Josephine and Lyonna Leota, Lotoa Simi and Elizabeth Uti.
The addition of sisters Regina and Rosary Wright, formerly of Black Roses, has made Kiwi a strong contender for the 2012 title.
Black Roses’ established stars are sisters Filiga and Meleane Ioapo, Angela Sao, Moana Siaulaiga and Fiso Letoi. Sao and the Ioapo sisters are all former MVP’s of various FFAS competitions while all of the players named above are current FFAS women’s national team players.
The addition of two experienced players Charity Tupua and Upuia Sao helps bolsters Black Roses chances to reclaim their title.
This game, besides being a cup match, could have a huge impact on the championship race later on in the season so it is vital for both teams to earn a win here, perhaps it could be the biggest win of the season for either team.
