Moaula United-National League Champs

Mouala United went through the season with an impressive record of 18 wins, 1 draw and only 1 loss to finish 5 points ahead of their closest competitor Cruz Azul.
Moaula United assistant coach Mr Tala Masene Salamasina Saveaalii expressed delight at winning the national league and explained that. “It has been a very tough completion both on and off the field and the success of the team has been through the support of the families and the village”.
Mr Saveaalii also commented that “ Our style of play is to play offensive football and score a lot of goals. Which looking back at the whole season worked well for us, even if we did concede the occasional goal due to this type of strategy. We also had some discipline issues at the beginning of the season which working together as a team we were able to overcome”.
In the day’s other matches second place Cruz Azul ended their season on a high with a 5-4 win against Togafuafua Saints in an encounter which produced nine goals. Third place Kiwi SC came back from being down 0-1 at half time to score two goals in the second half to win 2-1 against Moataa SC. In the match between Apia Youth and Adidas SC the score ended at 4-4.
The season which kicked off 6 September 2009 produced at times some very entertaining and hard fought matches. Moaula United won’t have much time to celebrate their victory since on May 15th, they will play against Kiwi Soccer Club in the final of the cup competition which kicks off at 4pm at the JS Blatter Football Complex at Tuanaimato.
