The Jets have increased their lead over No. 2 PanSa by a point thanks to the latter’s draw, and the Jets’ latest win on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2016 on Match Day 10 of the women’s FFAS National League.
Tafuna retained the women’s FFAS National Cup with a 5-0 win over Pago Youth while PanSa drew 0-0 with Puma to fall behind the Jets in the race for the 2016 title. In the other games it was Ilaoa & To’omata 2, Green Bay 0, and Vaiala Tongan won by forfeit over Lion Heart.
Lion Heart was unable to field a full squad of nine players to start the game.
TAFUNA JETS 5, PAGO YOUTH 0
Beulah Oney and Vasati Makiasi took apart Pago Youth in the women’s Cup challenge match by scoring five goals between the two of them.
Oney scored twice while Makiasi scored her hat trick all in the second half for another dominating performance by the jets. Despite the score, it was a tough first half with the Jets two goals by Oney coming late in the period.
Tafuna came into the day with a six-point lead over PanSa for pole position in the standings, and then saw that lead increased by a point when the latter could not come up with a win in their game.
ILAOA & TO’OMATA 2, GREEN BAY 0
Elsy Lui is on a scoring tear for Ilaoa & To’omata with three goals scored in a span of two weeks.
The latest was a brace of goals against Green Bay to help her team to only their third win of the season.
PANSA 0, ROYAL PUMA 0
PanSa escaped with a draw in what could have been a loss as Royal Puma squandered several 1-v-1 chances.
One of those opportunities was a called back goal on an offside infringement while a few others were shots that went wide of the net. Instead of falling behind a full three games to Tafuna, they are 2.5 with five games remaining in the season.
The women’s rounds 11 and 12 will both be played on Saturday, November 12, 2016.
