Title chases take shape

In the women’s league, three teams are now in the running for the fourth and final play-off spot. Fagasa Youth and Tafuna Jets are tied in fourth on 10 points after both moving up a place because of their latest wins.
But Fagasa hold a big advantage due to their vastly superior goal difference. They have had no trouble finding the net for a goal difference of 15 while the Jets are lagging way behind on minus one.
Lila Waetin netted a hat-trick as Ilaoa and To’omata beat Green Bay 4-0 while Melinda Tupua struck a brace for Fagasa Youth as they defeated Vailoatai Youth 6-1.
Black Roses remain in top spot and are followed by Ilaoa and To’omata while Utulei Youth move back to third.
In the men’s division, wins by Black Roses and Utulei Youth caused a ripple effect of changes in the Pool A standings. The Roses blasted Kiwi Soccers 9-0 while Utulei Youth beat Ilaoa and To’omata 4-0, thus altering the top four picture.
Black Roses, the defending champions, were helped to the win largely by a hat-trick from Jerry Iosefa and a Dion Ott brace.
The Roses have now moved into the top position for the first time this season. The loss drops Kiwi Soccers down a spot to second place while Utulei move up to fourth. Idle Fagasa Youth drop down from second to third.
The Pool B standings are mostly the same as that of a week ago. Vailoatai Youth are in the lead with Pago A second, FC SKBC third and Lauli’i fourth.
Ryan Petaia, Tanielu Tanielu and Faiaai Kerisiano each notched hat-tricks as Vailoatai handed a 15-1 defeat to Tafuna Jets B. Oi Sinapoa and Tolu Malaeulu also both grabbed a brace for the league leaders.
