Australia Wins Oceania Under 18

Australia qualified for the Under 18 World Cup in Korea this year with a 5-0 win over American Samoa. The game was called after four innings because of rain, which would disappoint many Samoan fans. American Samoa had pulled an upset over Australia earlier in pool play winning 4-3.

Australia was declared the champion based on their 16-0 win over Samoa in the playoffs. American Samoa then defeated third place Guam 15-6 to earn another shot at Australia. Mother Nature did not allow that game to be completed.

New Zealand finished fourth and Palau fifth in the tournament.
