Summer League ends on a high note

“It has been a great two weeks of our program but sadly, it has come to an end,” said FFAS President Iuli Alex Godinet in his closing remarks on Friday, July 15, 2011 at Pago Park Soccer Stadium. “But we’ve got prizes for all of you and want to thank everyone for making this competition a great one!”
All players in the 6-8 and 9-11 age groups received one soccer ball each while their teams were handed a box of Mix Chips and case of soda each. FFAS also provided the teams of this division with 10 Carl’s Jr. food vouchers each.
“This soccer ball is for you to go and start playing with at home and we hope you continue to play soccer,” Iuli told the young crowd. “Keep playing so that you can grow up to be as good as our players in the older competition.”
Playoffs and title games were held for the Boys 15-17, Girls 15-17 and Boys 12-14 age groups, respectively.
“The (executive) committee, association and I are thankful to you our children for starting off the first competition on our newly re-seeded field and what a great first competition it has been,” Iuli said.
