PRESS RELEASE – The Sidekicks officially clinched the championship title in Division II of the Budweiser Soccer League following a 1-1 draw with the Rovers DII in Week 15 action at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

The 13-1-1 Sidekicks, which had its undefeated streak snapped in a Week 14 loss to the Crushers FC, needed at least a draw against the Rovers DII (9-3-3) to secure the division title with three more weeks left in the season.

A goal from the Sidekicks’ Shaine Munoz in the 10th minute helped his team to a 1-0 lead at half time, but minutes into the second half, a goal from the Rovers DII’s Agustin Choi leveled the match. The Rovers DII, needing nothing less than a win to stay in contention for the division title, attempted a handful of attacking plays in the deciding half, but the team was denied each time by a strong Sidekicks defense, resulting in the 1-1 draw.

In Division I play, Jan-Willem Staman’s free kick in the closing seconds lifted Quality Distributors FC over the Rovers DI 3-2. Staman also scored in the first half and teammate Shane Casey scored Quality’s other goal. Ian Mariano scored both goals for the Rovers DI.
