The ASHSAA Girls’ Soccer competition kicked off with two games on Saturday, Jan. 7, 2012 at Pago Park Soccer Stadium.

Leone’s J-V and Varsity teams took on the Tafuna Warriors in the only games played. Matches between the Samoana Sharks- Kanana Fou Stallions and Faga’itua Vikings- Nu’uuli VocTech Wildcats were forfeited in favor of the Sharks and Vikings.
