Winning the toss, the Samoans went into bat first and got off to a bad start as the first 3 wickets fell in close succession for only 13 runs.
This brought to the crease, captain Regina Sela Monika Lili’i who momentarily turned their innings around smashing 30 runs.
But her dismissal brought about a batting collapse as the rest of the batting order all scored below 20 runs.
After the full 20 overs bowled, Samoa finished at 9/103.
PNG’s Tanya Ruma was phenomenal picking up 3/11 followed by Norma Ovasuru who finished with 2/8.
