Warriors over Vikings, 26-6

Our finest teams battled it out for this year’s 2010 - 2011 American Samoa High School Athletic Association’s Varsity Football Championship match up on Saturday, with the Warriors claiming this one with a big blow out victory defeating the Vikings 36 - 6.

This match up was one tough game, as it was played under heavy rain showers, which had the players hyper and wet, throughout the whole game.

As soon as they rain poured, both teams had to ditch their passing game, and focus on running the ball.

Samoa News spoke to Jason Magalei, Tafuna Warriors head coach about the game. “First of all, I would like to send out our fa’amalo and fa’afetai to head coach Sua’ese Pooch Ta’ase, and his players and the parents of their association for a heck of a game. They showed very good sportsmanship ... [and were] our toughest competitor this year.”

He had praise for his coordinator coaches Loso I’aulualo on offense and defensive coordinator coach Kevin Magalei.

As far as our offense, we changed it up from our regular scheme, so we had to work with our double tights, we had to allow an extra blocker inside, for an attack in the box, and when that happens, we were able to get Viavia Manuma out. But defensively, coach Kevin and coach Nathan Magalei, coach Scottie and the rest of our defensive coaches did a hell of a job today to adjust to Fagaitua’s offense. But our kids, they played really well today. They came out – they represented, and they did a good job today.”

On the other side of the field, Samoa News spoke to Fagaitua High School’s head coach, Sua’ese Pooch Ta’ase, on what he has to say, about the match, and how things went on their side of the field, “first of all, I would like to congratulate coach Jason Magalei and the Warriors team for a great job today. Tafuna was the better team than us, and we would just like to congratulate them on a job well done.”
