The Fa’asao Marist Crusaders Boys Varsity Basketball took an undefeated record of 5-0 to Tafuna yesterday to take on the ASHSAA defending champion Tafuna Warriors team that went into the game undefeated at 3 and 0. Also yesterday the Nu’uuli Voc-Tech Wildcats met the Faga’itua Vikings.
The Crusaders made it to the 5-0 mark when they defeated the constantly improving South Pacific Academy Dolphins by a score of 42-30 this past Tuesday.
Scores for yesterday's games were not available at press time.
Today’s game will have the Samoana Sharks hosting the Warriors. The Sharks, who sit at the number three spot in the standings, have made slight improvements on their overall play, which should make this match-up much closer than their first meeting when the Warriors pummeled the Sharks at the beginning of the season. Today’s game has a scheduled starting time of 4:30 p.m.
The other game that was scheduled for today between the Leone Lions and the Dolphins has been moved to tomorrow right after the Junior Varsity games at Samoana High School. The Junior Varsity games begin tomorrow at 8 a.m.
