Lady Crushers begin 2015 spring season with win

[Jan. 25, 2015 - Harmon, Guam] The three-time defending champions Doosan Lady Crushers began its 2015 campaign with a 4-1 victory over league newcomer Southern Heat in the opening weekend of the Bud Light Women’s Soccer League Spring season at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

Caylani Estoy, Skyylerblu Johnson, Colleen Naden, and Maria Abbey Iriarte scored for the Lady Crushers. Carmela Tyquiengco scored the Heat’s lone goal.

In another opening week match, the Lady Rovers, last season’s runner-up, also began the New Year with a win, defeating Quality Distributors in a 3-1 contest.

Quality’s April Talledo opened scoring for both teams in the 31st minute on a free kick from the left side that escaped the reach of Lady Rovers’ goalkeeper Leodith Abinales, but four minutes later, the Lady Rovers’ Melissa Elwell leveled the match with a shot off a pass from Catherine Kendall for the eventual 1-1 halftime score.

Defender Theresa Graham’s long-distance strike in the 66th minute from a Quality ball clearance put the Lady Rovers up by one and four minutes later, Lady Rovers’ newcomer Kayla Bero added another goal to cap her team’s victory. Bero moved up to the women’s top division after playing for the Lady Bombers in the GFA Women's Intermediate 7-A-Side Recreational League last year.

In the early match, Hyundai defeated a shorthanded Guam Shipyard team 8-2 with four goals from Shana Spindel, three from Olivia Flores, and one from Levana Terlaje. Fourteen-year-old Hannah Cruz scored for Guam Shipyard in her women's league debut, and teammate Rhiannon Pangindian also scored.

Based on goal differential, Hyundai is on top of Bud Light Women’s Soccer League Week 1 standings, with the Lady Crushers and Lady Rovers rounding out the top three.

Spindel’s four goals put her on top of the Golden Boot race after one match, followed by teammate Flores with three.

League play continues Sunday with the Lady Strykers taking on Quality at 5:30 p.m. on United Airlines Field 1 at GFA and the Lady Rovers playing against Shipyard on United Airlines Field 2, also at 5:30 p.m. Hyundai plays the Heat at 7:30 p.m. in the evening’s late match.

Budweiser Soccer League to resume Saturday

[Jan. 9, 2015 - Harmon, Guam] The Budweiser Soccer League returns to action Saturday evening at the Guam Football Association National Training Center after taking a two-week holiday break.

Immediately before the break, the Rovers (6-1) secured its first-place spot in league standings by defeating frontrunner contender Guam Shipyard (5-2) with a 3-1 victory. Ian Mariano, Natsuki Recella, and David McCallum scored one each for the winning team. Andre Gadia scored Shipyard's goal.

Shipyard, the only team to have defeated the Rovers this season, needed at least a draw to nab first place going into the league's two-week break; however, in the teams’ most recent fixture, Shipyard was without its top scorer Cameron Giles and the Rovers added back Ian Mariano, the league's Golden Boot frontrunner, and Jason Cunliffe in their lineup. The pair took a break from the team's first match-up with Shipyard, a 2-1 loss.

Bulldogs win third-straight U8 title in 3v3 grassroots tourney

The Bulldogs continued their dominance in the Guam Football Association 3v3 Grassroots Tournament by winning the U8 division title for the third-straight time in as many tournaments at the GFA National Training Center.

“It feels great to win again because it was the third time,” said Riku Meyar, who has played on all three Bulldogs championship teams. “We were able to win because we just kept working hard every game, even against some stronger teams this time.”

Mini futsal tournament held for at-risk visiting students

Thirteen-year-old GianCarlo Abril thoroughly enjoyed a rare opportunity to play in a mini-futsal tournament with visiting students from Japan at the University of Guam Fieldhouse and hopes to participate in future exchanges.

“It was a great event to interact with people from different cultures who play the same sport,” said Abril, an incoming freshman at Father Duenas Memorial School. “We don’t have many opportunities to play futsal, so this was a great experience for me, and for others on the team. I’d love to participate in future events like this one.”

Abril was one of a handful of Guam’s U14 and U16 national team training squad members who competed against visiting students from Japan’s Wasegaku High School system during their annual excursion to Guam.
