WEEK 9 OF ASHSAA CLEARLY ROARS: LION JVs ARE THE SEASON’S CHAMPIONS
Week No.9 of the ongoing American Samoa High School Athletic Association (ASHSAA) Football Season clearly gave Leone High School this year’s Championship title in the Junior Varsity Division, as they are the only team in the Division — with just one more game to go — with an undefeated record for the 2013 season.
The JV game between the Leone Lions and the Fagaitua Vikings was ASHSAA’s only football game held this past weekend due to the Moso’oi Festivities, which were sports events, i.e. volleyball, cricket and rugby, that took place on island.

Leone 42 - Fagaitua 8
The Lions continued rule of the JV division is in large part due to their having the fastest player in the division — Folasa Vili. Vili scored the majority of Leone’s points against the Vikings this past Thursday evening.
However, Jeremiah Pritchard and Aleipata Fereti were also ‘fear factors’ in this game. And a big plus for the JV Lions is the decision by Leone’s Head Coach Arona Samoa to make the former Vikings star — Fereti — quarterback for the Lions.
Leone has one more game to go, and as far as this correspondent can see: they are going to win their last game against the Sharks, in order to roar this season closed with an ‘undefeated’ championship title.
