The undefeated Guam National team rolled through the Lady Dragons in the first game of Sunday’s semifinal showdowns after a great display of full court defense and a constant attack to the basket proved to be a winning formula for head coach Sid Guzman and the National girls.

Guam National’s Kat Castro held down the first half scoring for the team as Castro put up 11 points, out scoring the entire Dragons squad as the Nationals jumped out to a 33-10 half-time lead. Castro finished with 22 points to lead the squad.

The undefeated streak continues for the National team as they will now face the Islanders Club as they defeated the Dededo Lady Bulldogs in a close game.

Islanders Club 53, Dededo Lady Bulldogs 51

Allison Bowman’s 12 points came up big for the Islanders as they advance to the championship game over Felicia Borja and the Bulldogs. Borja had a strong 21 points, but the all around effort of Bowman, Ruffina Royster, and Rebecca Rupley gave the Islanders the nod.
