Who won the 2011 Pacific Nations Cup???

I know it was awarded to Japan, but according to the points differential, Tonga should have been first place. So why was it awarded to Japan? Are these stats wrong or did someone screw up and award it to the wrong team?

Another weird decision was the 2014 PNC. I remember it being reported that Japan and Fiji had topped their groups, that Fiji had topped Samoa on points differential. I always thought that was odd too because Samoa finished with a win and a draw whereas Fiji finished with a win and a loss. Now I see its written on wikipedia that it was Samoa and Japan that topped their groups.

As I understand because Japan beat Tonga on the last day they used the policy of head to head hence why it was awarded to them.
