PRESS RELEASE – More than half of the players on Tumon Soccer Club’s U14 team in the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth League are entirely new to the sport, but they’ve been enjoying scrimmages and league matches at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

“I like the experience a lot – it’s fun, but it’s a lot of running,” said Tumon Soccer Club’s 13-year-old Brandon Salumbides, who played his first official soccer match in Week 4 of the youth league. “My friend’s brother – Dylan Naputi – he plays on the Matao and I was inspired to try out the sport this year.

“I didn’t play for my school, but I hope with experience from the youth league, I can play for my high school next school year,” added the Agueda I. Johnston Middle School eighth grader.

In Salumbides’ maiden match, his team fell to Community First Dededo Soccer Club. Diether Messner, Logan Bracamonte, Tyler Hilliard and Jericho Snaer all scored for Dededo in the win.

In other U14 matches, the defending champions Wings FC settled for a 1-1 draw with Quality Distributors. Takumi Ito scored for the Wings and An Truong scored for Quality.

Seung Min Kim, Yu Chan Lee, Luke Kim, and Michael Chong all scored for the Tigers in the team’s win over the Lil’ Bombers. Jackson Blackburn scored for the Lil’ Bombers.

The Wolverines defeated the Southern Cobras with goals from Noah Camacho, Jordan Diego, and Brianne Leon Guerrero.

The Strykers Red defeated the Sidekicks with goals from Anthony Moon, Xavier Naputi, Aidan Dickson, Luke Reeder and Clayton Mitchell.

In the day’s final U14 match, the ASC Trust Islanders edged the Strykers Blue 3-2. Gabriel Tan, Mia San Nicolas, and Marley Cruz scored for the Islanders. Sabrina Kenney and Caleb Elwell scored for the Strykers.

In the U17 division, the Strykers defeated the Sidekicks 5-0 with goals from Shawn Charfauros, Ray Gudmalin, C.J. Paulino, Michael “Jake” Benito, and Joshua Lujan.

The Wings Red defeated Quality Distributors Red with a hat trick from Shashikant Kotwal and other goals from Kaito Inoue and Isiah Lagutang.
