Women’s cup travels for fourth straight week
The women’s FFAS National Cup of the 2017 National League has changed hands for the fourth week in a row, this time going home with Vaiala Tongan after a 6-0 win over Ilaoa & To’omata on Sept. 23.
This was the second time Ilaoa & To’omata defended the cup and lost it this season, giving it away on the first week of the competition to Taputimu Youth. Taputimu then lost it to the Tafuna Jets, who then gave it back to Ilaoa & To’omata on week three.
The Jets have a shot at the cup again as they will challenge for it this coming Saturday.
In other games last Saturday, it was Black Roses 1, Tafuna Jets 0; PanSa 3, Pago Youth 0; Taputimu Youth 0, Green Bay 0 and Royal Puma won by forfeit over Lion Heart because the latter did not have enough players to start the game.
VAIALA TONGAN 6, ILAOA & TO’OMATA 0
Vaiala Tongan made quick work of their opponents with three goals in the first half, two of them coming in the early goings of the game.

At the moment Vaiala Tongan is third in the standings while Ilaoa & To’omata is in ninth place.
BLACK ROSES 1, TAFUNA JETS 0
Audrey Hall goaled one of two penalty kicks in the game to help Black Roses to a 1-0 win over the Jets. For the second PK, she had it careening off of the cross bar.
