After three attempts for a championship title, Uptempo claimed their first one ever on Saturday to close the Fagaloa fall league (FBDG) with a 108-103 double-overtime victory over the DBAS Spoilers of Nu'uuli. Kelvin Tuamasaga, a firefighter at the Airport Rescue and Fire and US Army Reservist was named the Fagaloa Most Valuable Player (MVP), his second MVP award earned in the league. His first was earned in the first Fagaloa league while a power forward for Pago Eagles. He led his team to victory with 34 points during the championship game.

When the clock ran out, the game was tied at 99 all. Both teams stepped up their defense in the first OT but scoring was even, four points from each side, and a second overtime was called with the score at 103 all. Uptempo was able to gain five points all from the charity line during the second overtime, sealing their very first championship victory. Five key Spoilers, Fagaloa All Stars Pama, Nelson and Patrick, al fouled out late in the game. For Uptempo, just Sam fouled out. Fagaloa MVP titles are held by just two individuals: Tuamasaga and point guard Reno Amisone, both of whom played together for the Eagles and both have been named to the Fagaloa All Stars roster. This season, the Eagles basketball team disbanded and Amisone joined the Pago Kings while Tuamasaga joined Uptempo.
Vying for the third place spot were the Kings and Faga'alu Starz. The Starz only edged the Kings 78-76 to secure third place. Awards presentations followed the finals and Fagaloa named as the league's Most Improved Player (MIP), Aleki Savea of team Utulei.
