Lions in firm lead of J-V soccer


Pago Pago, American Samoa – Saturday, March 20, 2010 — The Leone Lions are leading the boys’ high school junior varsity soccer competition, winning their second game of the season 5-3 against the Wildcats on Saturday, March 20, 2010 at Pago Park Soccer Stadium.

Every win is crucial in this division as the team atop the standings at the end of the two-round season will be crowned champs.

Samoana, the defenders from last year, have only a point to their name after two games and are sitting at fourth place. Second to the Lions are the Warriors, followed by Faga’itua, Samoana and then the Wildcats.

In the only other J-V match last Saturday it was Tafuna 3, Faga’itua 2.


An own goal against the Vikings proved to be their unmaking as that one mistake helped Tafuna win 3-2 as both teams were matched up decently against one another.

Because there are only five teams in the division, by ASHSAA rule this means there will be two rounds for the J-V.
