Women’s leaders emerge

Both are leading their groups with six points each after their second rounds played on Saturday, October 1, 2011 at Pago Park Soccer Stadium.
POOL A
Ilaoa & To’omata leads Pool A by three points over (in order of goals difference due to three points apiece) Pago Youth, PanSa, Green Bay and Vaitogi United.
In other Pool A matches it was PanSa 5, Black Roses 2 and Green Bay 2, Vaitogi United 0 with Pago Youth idle over the weekend.
ILAOA & TOOMATA 13, LION HEART 0
Ilaoa & To’omata cruised to a 13-0 victory over Lion Heart behind a five-goal performance from Mary Ipiniu and braces from See Sagote, Lela Waetin and Taulagi Sagote.
PANSA 5, BLACK ROSES 2
Defending champs Black Roses are in a deep hole with a long way to climb out after losing their second match of the season 5-2 against 2008 champs, PanSa.
They are currently sitting in sixth place out of seven and if things continue may not make it out of the pool stage to defend their title.
It was a close first half with PanSa leading 2-0 and they came back strong with Angela Sa’o scoring two. But they could not mount a strong comeback as Rete Tago also scored a brace to lead her team in the win.
GREEN BAY 2, VAITOGI UNITED 0
Goals in each half helped Green Bay record their first win in their first match of the season after sitting out the opening weekend with a bye.
POOL B
A win by default saw Kiwi Soccers jump to the top of the leaderboard over (in order of goals difference due to four points apiece) Tafuna Jets and Vailoatai Youth.
Their win came against Fagatogo Blue for not showing up to the field on time while in other games it was Tafuna Jets 11, Atu’u Broncos 1 and Vailoatai Youth 6, Fagasa Youth 1 with Utulei Youth sitting out with a bye.
TAFUNA JETS 11, ATU’U BRONCOS 1
A barage of goals from the Jets saw them earn their first win of the season after starting it off with a draw.
Despite starting the game with only nine players, they still dominated Atu’u as Sina Luani led the way with five goals scored, followed by a brace each from sister Makerita Luani and Tagiilima Lotoa.
VAILOATAI YOUTH 6, FAGASA YOUTH 1
For the second straight week Vailoatai started first half with a 2-0 lead and this time they did not relinquish it to a tie like the did on Sept. 24 against the Jets.
They went on to win 6-1 against a short-handed Fagasa as the latter started and finished the match with only eight players.
