Girls HS soccer playoffs to get underway
Faga’itua and Tafuna have crashed the playoffs party with late wins in the season, pushing out Samoana from the top four and forcing South Pacific Academy to drop down from No. 2 to No. 4.
One of those wins for the Vikings is a 3-2 decision against previously unbeaten Fa’asao-Marist, the Cougars only loss of the season.
The playoff-bound teams are No.1 Fa’asao-Marist Cougars, No. 2 Tafuna Warriors, No. 3 Faga’itua Vikings and No. 4 South Pacific Academy Dolphins.
The Cougars will face off against the Dolphins while Tafuna takes on Faga’itua on Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at the Pago Park Soccer Stadium.
In the meantime the Cougars’ Junior Varsity squad are champions of their division, having completed the season with a perfect, 7-0 record. The Tafuna Warriors finished second in the JV bracket.
The Cougars and Dolphins met only once during the season with Fa’asao-Marist edging the latter 2-1 on January 27, 2016. Tafuna defeated Faga’itua 5-2 when the two teams met on February 29, 2016 in a lopsided win for the Warriors.
The championship game is scheduled for today — Thursday, March 17, 2016.
