The Fagali’i Volleyball team proved too strong taking home the Cup for this year’s Teuila Festival Volleyball tournament.

Fagalii was up against the defending Champions from last year’s tournament, Titans from Vaiusu and Vaitele. They won 2-0.

Fagalii’s first encounter in the playoffs was Uimaiama team from the Big Island of Savaii. Then they made their way to semifinals defeating one of the best teams in the tournament from Lona, Fagaloa. 

The President of the Samoa Volleyball Federation Sala Matafeo congratulated the Fagalii team.

“Congratulations Fagalii team, Eneliko Tui (Captain) and your team, you have come a long way and have been one of the most entertaining team of the Volleyball League”.

Fagalii team Captain Eneliko Tui was proud and satisfied with his team’s efforts. 

“I am so proud of what we have achieved given this just the beginning of something new to my boys and the team.

“We knew it was going to be a tough tournament but we’ve trained hard and we were well prepared for this kind of pressure.”

Spicy team from Si’usega came third overall, while Lona Fagaloa team came fourth for this year.

The Lupe o le Soaga team won the Women’s division, beating the Amouli team from American Samoa. I’asa took home the third spot while Saoluafata finished fourth.
