PRESS RELEASE – The Guam Shipyard Wolverines were among six other teams in the Chevrolet Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League U17 division to claim one of the first wins on the newly constructed upper turf pitch in the age division’s season opener at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

Joseph Cho, starting goalkeeper, added one off a header, and teammates Andrea Odell, Justin Johnson and Cain Takasu also added one to their team’s tally.

To raise much-needed funds to help sustain their programs, the youth league clubs currently are selling $10 raffle tickets in the GFA Chevrolet Supersonic Sweepstakes, featuring a brand new 2013 Chevrolet Sonic vehicle as the grand raffle prize. Proceeds from ticket sales will be distributed to clubs based on the number of tickets they sell. The club that sells the most tickets by March 30 also will receive a $250 bonus. Tickets may be purchased from club members or at the GFA Main Office in Harmon. The official drawing will take place April 20, 2013, Jamboree Day. For more information, call the GFA Main Office at 637-4321.
