MANGILAO SOCCER ON TOP

PRESS RELEASE – Mangilao Soccer Club and defending champions Samurai Heat solidified their places in the top two spots of the Aloha Maid All-Girls Soccer League with wins Saturday at the Guam Football Association National Training Center in Harmon.

Both teams receive a bye during the first round of playoffs and a two-week break during the AFC U16 Women’s Football Championship qualifiers to be played at GFA Nov. 6-10.

Mangilao Soccer Club, the only undefeated team in the league, blanked Quality Distributors 3-0 behind two goals from Demi-Rae Shimizu and one from Tatyana Ungacta. The Samurai Heat scored five goals in the second half against the ASC Islanders Betde to finish with a 6-2 win on the final round of the regular season.

The Heat’s Quincy Tougher carried the ball to the right side and found Hannah Tyquiengco to open the scoreboard in the first half against the Islanders Betde, who were playing short with only four players in the 5-A-Side game format.

The Heat later extended its lead to two goals after Ally Cruz connected on a Tyquiengco kick-in. Tyquiengco scored again on a corner kick and later, Cruz created her own shot opportunity with a sprint up the right side for the 4-0 advantage. The Heat’s scoring spree continued with Carmela Tyquiengco and Martina Duenas trading a few passes before Duenas took a shot to give her team the 5-0 lead.

The Heat would lose its clean sheet late in the second half when the Islanders’ Paris “Mames” Blas found teammate Nicole Pierce for a shot. The Heat’s Caroline Auregelli answered back with an assist to Aubrey Esteves for another goal, before Blas took a Pierce kick-in for another Islanders goal before the final whistle.

In the day’s other All-Girls League game, the Doosan Crushers defeated the ASC Islanders Asut 7-1 behind two goals each from the league’s Golden Boot winner Krystiana Martinez and Francesca Pangelinan. Lillian Troy, Erica Evangelista and Anaka Park also scored for the Crushers. Rhia Pangindian scored the Islanders Asut’s lone goal.

The third-ranked Crushers will face the Islanders Asut again in the first round of playoffs Saturday. The winner of the game will play against the Samurai Heat on Nov. 17. The Islanders Betde will face Quality Distributors in the other first-round playoff game Saturday to determine who will advance to play the top-ranked Mangilao Soccer Club on Nov. 17.
