PRESS RELEASE – The battle of the Budweiser Soccer League’s two undefeated Division I teams Quality Distributors and Table 35 Espada FC resulted in a 2-2 draw in Week 3 action at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

Quality’s Aaron Scott had the early goal against Espada FC and Scott Spindel added another before halftime to take a commanding 2-0 lead. Alan Jamison recorded Espada FC’s first goal in the 52nd minute and 20 minutes later, a Thaddeus Atalig goal reduced his team’s deficit to just one goal.
