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.

Matches of the U17 division, delayed until the completion of the upper turf pitch, officially started with seven matches Saturday.

Nathan Camacho led the Wolverines against the goal-hungry Wings Black team, earning a hat trick in the 7-2 victory. Teammate Jestin Escobar added a brace and teammates Derrick Cruz and Napu Mesa added a goal each. Hinako Ito, a female member of the Wings Black team, scored a goal in the first half and later in the second half, teammate Ryo Sakane scored his team’s other goal.

The Wings Red team fared better in its opening match, blanking the Community First Dededo Soccer Club. Edwin Wong led the Wings Red team with five goals and teammate Kaito Inoue added two goals. 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.

The Southern Cobras defeated the Sidekicks 7-3 in one of the day’s late games behind two goals each from Keith Surber and Napu Topasna. Seth Surber, Donovan Reyes and Jason Miller also scored for the Cobras. Jake Benito, Chris Cawili and Henry Haight scored the Sidekicks’ three goals.

The Strykers edged Community First Dededo Soccer Club 2-1 and the Wings blanked the Mini Masakåda, Guam’s Girls’ U14 national team training squad, in the day’s final game in the division.

In the U12 division, the Wolverines settled for a 2-2 draw with the ASC Islanders Apaka. The Strykers Red defeated Tumon Soccer Club 6-1, the Tigers conceded two goals to Community First Dededo Soccer Club Gold, but still earned a 10-2 victory, and the Wolverines’ other team blanked the Strykers Blue. The ASC Islanders Asut defeated the Wings Black 5-1, the Sidekicks won 9-1 against the Lil’ Bombers and the Orange Crushers defeated the Southern Cobras 8-1.

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.
