Undefeated teams face tough opponents

Both teams have similar records of 6-0 with Black Roses holding the goals difference edge, 39-26. Black Roses will play the standings’ No. 3 team Utulei Youth (2:30 p.m.) while Ilaoa & To’omata goes up against Fagasa Youth (11:30 a.m.).
Tafuna Jets, fourth in the standings, could move into the No. 3 spot should they beat Vailoatai Youth and hope for an Utulei loss to Black Roses.
After Fagasa Youth in fifth place it’s Kiwi Soccers, PanSa, Lion Heart and Vailoatai. No. 11 and 12 are Pago Youth and Fagatogo Blue, respectively.
BLACK ROSES vs. UTULEI YOUTH
Utulei Youth has not had a team competing in the women’s 11-a-side competition for a while but boasts some very talented players such as former U-20 representatives Fiapa’ipa’i Siatu’u and Fuataina Siatu’u and Quarina Evagelia.
Black Roses, on the other hand, have some of the island’s best players in sisters Lela-May, Filiga and Meleane Kerisiano, Ora Ott, Salevu Filiva’a, Gloria Nuusila and former U-20 members Moaga Siaulaiga, Fiso Letoi and Farah Mata’ituli. They are still the class of the division and are the favorite in this contest.
ILAOA & TO’OMATA vs. FAGASA YOUTH
Ilaoa & To’omata will be pitting their two best scorers in Lela Waetin and Charlotte Uili against the OFC U-20 Women’s Championship New Zealand 2010 golden glove goalie, Sancia Sopoaga of Fagasa (11:30 a.m.).
One of Fagasa Youth’s weaknesses is their lack of an established striker and will have to hope for someone to score against a tough Ilaoa & To’omata.
TAFUNA JETS vs. VAILOATAI YOUTH
The Tafuna Jets have risen to the No. 4 position thanks to two straight forfeited wins — against then No. 2 Kiwi Soccers on Oct. 23 and most recently against Fagatogo Blue on Oct. 30.
This will actually be their first match in three weeks and on paper, they should be able to handle Vailoatai Youth (1:00 p.m.) easily as the latter has a 1-5 record.
KIWI SOCCERS vs. PAGO YOUTH
Kiwi Soccers will be looking to rebound from three straight losses, one of them a forfeit, against 10th seeded Pago Youth (2:30 p.m.).
Meanwhile, Pago goes into the match in search of their first win, coming close two weeks ago against fellow Pago Pago-based club PanSa when they were just minutes away from winning before an equalizing goal was scored.
PANSA vs. GREEN BAY
PanSa, the 2008 champs and 2009 runner-up, is in trouble of missing out on the top 4 as they currently sit at 8th place. With five more rounds to go they need to set their winning gears in motion in order to have a chance at making the postseason.
They play against bottom of the standings’ Fagatogo Blue (8:30 a.m.) and will need this to be the first rung of victory in their climb back to the top 4.
LION HEART vs. GREEN BAY
Green Bay, sitting at No. 6, has to win in order to keep their hopes alive at making the top 4. They will pit their .500-record against Lion Heart’s (8:30 a.m.) 1-5, best for No. 9 in the standings.
Lion Heart has been beset by not being able to field a full complement of 11 players but has shown a spirit of competitiveness, especially from their goalie and club president, Amio Mavaega-Luvu.
Green Bay is only in 6th place by way of the goals differential tiebreaker over fellow-Faga’alu club, Kiwi Soccers (7-0).
