Private Elementary Schools Soccer ends

With a heavy torrential downpour on Wednesday, Nov. 25, four teams lifted the trophies for their divisions to conclude the little more than a month-long tournament.
“This has been a great league and we want to thank the eight private elementary schools for participating this year again,” said FFAS Vice-President Sandra Fruean, closing the league on behalf of president, Faiivae Iuli Alex Godinet.
Faiivae was away attending the OFC Executive Committee meeting in Papua New Guinea.
“This league is very popular every year and I thank everyone involved in it, especially the parents and players,” Faiivae said upon returning from PNG. “I also want to extend a big thank you to the CCCAS Church and the Kanana Fou Seminary College for allowing us to use their field for our games.
“It’s location and size makes it a perfect fit for us to hold our games here,” Faiivae added.
“We are looking forward very much to seeing you again next year,” Fruean said.
All four championship games were held simultaneously and the results were: Marist St. Francis beat South Pacific Academy in the final of the Boys Grades 6-8 division; Kanana Fou A beat Peteli in the final of the Girls Grades 6-8; Peteli beat St. Theresa in the final for the Boys Grades 3-5 division; and South Pacific Academy won against Samoa Baptist Academy in a shootout for the Girls Grades 3-5 bracket.
The most valuable player awards went to: Gabriel Taumua of Marist St. Francis (Boys 6-8); Iris Penitusi of Kanana Fou A (Girls 6-8); Senifili Tele’a of Peteli (Boys 3-5) and Amelia Saulo of South Pacific Academy (Girls 3-5).
Samoa Baptist Academy principal Lucy Tafao spoke on behalf of all the schools, thanking everyone involved with the league.
Trophies for first to fourth were handed out after the finals as well as snacks and drinks for each school. KS Mart sponsored the trophies for the Grades 6-8 division, and McConnell Dowell sponsored the Grades 3-5 hardware.
