No. 1 Cougars vs. No. 3 Vikings for Girls HS Soccer title

The Cougars advanced to the title game for the second year in a row after narrowly defeating the South Pacific Academy Dolphins 1-0 in the semi-finals. Fa’asao-Marist lost to the Kanana Fou Stallions in last year’s championship game.
Faga’itua beat Tafuna 4-0 handily in the other semi-final to advance against the Cougars, a team they beat 3-2 during the season.
Fa’asao-Marist sent a barrage of attacks at SPA from the opening kickoff to the last whistle on March 15, 2016 and except for one, were all turned away by the stellar play of Dolphins’ goalie Anastasia Tue.
Shots from beyond and inside the penalty box, low shots, high shots, she turned them away until Evelina Leuma blasted one from inside the goalie’s area for the game’s lone goal.
Even the season’s best player, Nikki Tolmie, could not score a goal against a great performance by Tue.
She also received big help from defender Rapiel Faataa in repelling the invasive Cougars.
It was a rematch of a game the Warriors won 5-2, but this time around, Faga’itua turned the tables with a commanding 4-0 win. The Vikings have been able to turn around what started off as a dismal season into a championship potential campaign, thanks mainly to an infusion into the varsity squad of players from the J-V team.
They have made the difference by shoring up Faga’itua’s turn of events as they beat the competition’s No. 1 team in Fa’asao-Marist and avenged a 5-2 loss against Tafuna with a 4-0 win.
Fatima scored a hat trick for Faga’itua.
