TIGERS, BLUE TIE IN U12

[sixcol_five_last]

PRESS RELEASE – Every time the Tigers gained the upper hand, Quality Distributors Blue just wouldn’t let down, forcing their opponents to settle for a 2-2 tie in the U12 division of the Chevrolet Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League Spring season at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

“It felt good to score in the last few minutes to tie,” said Quality’s Matthew Calip, a student at Oceanview Middle School. “For our next game I think we need to work on passing more and try to score more goals as a team.”

The Tigers found their opportunity early in the first half when Quality’s defense tightened in the midfield, leaving Anthony Moon unmarked near the goal. Moon didn’t disappoint his teammates, sending a shot from the left side to the opposite post for the score.
Quality knotted the game early in the second half when Ally Dumlao connected on a kick-in from teammate Tiffany Lopez. The Tigers’ second-half goalkeeper, Luke Kim, initially blocked the shot but was unable to secure the ball before Dumlao kicked it again to roll it into the goal.

Minutes later, the Tigers found themselves in the lead again following a shot from Alvin Yang, however, Quality would deny a win before the final whistle. Calip connected on a through pass from Dumlao for the final score of the match.

“After they scored another goal (in the second half), I didn’t think we could win because I knew we had very little time,” said Dumlao, a student at St. Paul Christian School. “When Matthew scored though, I felt relieved. At least we got a tie and we didn’t lose.”
