Cruz-Moaula Final

Kiwi were first to book a spot in the inaugural final, after their close, 2-1 victory over Apia Youth.
Kiwi were up, 2-0 at half-time, courtesy of Joseph (Harry) Hoeflich and Lionel Taylor goals.
Silao Malo’s strike reignited Apia attempts to match Kiwi’s first-half double, but it wasn’t meant to be.
Although Kiwi failed to score in the second spell, they wrapped up the win, 2-1.
Moaula-Cruz rivalry was thick in the other cup semi.
A dazzling duo by To’o (Fereti) Gosche dashed Cruz hopes.
While Geoffrey Strickland’s second-half goal heightened the pressure, his side couldn’t complete the double to force extra time.
In the first plate semi-final, Moataa SC are thanking their lucky stars that Jarrell Atimalala polished off their one-touch phase with a breakthrough goal in extra time.
Their opponents, Togafuafua Saints can only dream of what could have been. Robert Hellasoe fired the opening goal, just four minutes into the match.
At half-time the Saints were up, 2-1 but Moataa turned up the heat when they equalized in the closing minutes to send the match into extra time where Atimalala’s stunner secured Moataa’s place in the final.
Moataa will face Goldstar Sogi, who won 4-0- over Vaivase-Tai.
