“It feels great, it feels awesome to win the championship – I feel like the team can do anything,” said Sevilla, an 11-year-old student at St. Paul Christian School. “We played with good defense, and the Wings did too. For me, as the team’s forward/striker, I had to really work to get open to receive the ball and shoot.

“I look forward to returning in the fall season later this year and helping the team defend the title,” added Sevilla.

Triple J Auto Group awarded each player in the Islanders U12A team with a limited edition, hand-sewn Kia FIFA World Cup soccer ball for their championship victory.

In the third place match, key saves from goalkeeper Nikolai Champaco helped the Guam Shipyard Wolverines edge the Tigers 2-1. Kristofer Alcantara and Josiah Bernardo scored for the Wolverines and James Lee scored for the Tigers.

With the close of the season for the U6 age division to the U12 age division, youth clubs organized potluck celebrations for their players and families. Some clubs also recognized their players with certificates, medals, or trophies. As a fun day for the younger age divisions in the GFA Grassroots Jamboree, a special schedule, which included an array of quick, back-to-back matches with different teams and activity stations, were set.

“I enjoyed the skill station the most in the Jamboree,” said Zaeyah Tajalle, a six-year-old student at Marcial A. Sablan Elementary School, who plays for the Southern Cobras. “I liked it the most because we got to run with the ball and practice kicking the ball into the goal.”

In the upper age divisions, the Wings Red, the lone undefeated team in the U17 division, battled to a 5-5 draw with the Southern Heat. Marlon Evans scored twice and teammates Daniel Kim, Toy Matsushita, and Ryo Sakane scored for the Wings Red. Gideon Tyquiengco and Devin Quinata each scored twice and Donovan Reyes once for the Heat. The Wings Red will next face the defending champions Islanders Betde for the division championship title Saturday.

The Islanders Betde defeated the Sidekick SC to stay in title contention with goals from Ryan Quitugua, Nick Cabuhat, Phillip Ogo, Mike Mira, Sora Recella, Tevin Pangelinan, Joshua Cepeda, and Leon Bamba. Arvin Ramachandran and Dalton Kinney scored for the Sidekick SC.
