American Samoa's five a side soccer team mixed a win, a draw and a loss on the opening day of the Asia Pacific Special Olympics in Australia.

The team opened with a 2-0 defeat to East Timor, drew 0-0 with Australia D before beating Australia C 3-1.

A lack of fire power up front cost the team in their opening two matches before Saito Mauga blasted all three goals in the final game after switching from goalkeeper to attack.
