WINGS RED AND ISLANDERS PLAY TO DRAW

The Wings Red managed to wrest the U17 division title of the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League from the ASC Trust Islanders Betde after playing to a draw.

PRESS RELEASE – The Wings Red managed to wrest the U17 division title of the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League from the ASC Trust Islanders Betde after meeting the minimum requirement – a draw – in the final week of upper division matches at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

A Wings Red draw with the Southern Heat in Week 10 gave the Islanders (9-1-1) a glimmer of hope to repeat for a division title that the team held through 2013, but the urgency of their must-win situation against the Wings Red (9-0-2) came late in Week 11.

After the Wings Red pulled ahead with a 4-1 lead by halftime, the Islanders began their comeback with just 10 minutes left into the deciding half. A pair of goals from Sora Recella put the Islanders within one and in the 80th minute, Nick Cabuhat connected on a rebound from a shot by teammate Ryan Quitugua to force the 4-4 draw.

Isiah Lagutang led the Wings with two goals and teammates Marlon Evans and Kaito Inoue contributed one each. Jared Collado scored the Islanders’ lone goal in the first half.

“It feels good that the team was able to get the title back this season,” Lagutang said after the match. “What we could have done better was to keep up the pressure on the Islanders through the whole match and not slack off, even when we’re leading.

“Overall, we did well and the Islanders did well. It was a good game, and it was a good comeback for them to force the draw,” added Lagutang, a 16-year-old student at Harvest Christian Academy.

In other U17 division matches, goals from Ian Tumamak, Andrew Baldwin, Joshua Cepeda and Sol Kim helped Quality Distributors Red defeat its Blue counterpart. Tara Usita-Lee and Davilyn Sablan scored for Quality Blue.

Devan Mendiola, Noah Duenas and Kennedy Macatuno each scored twice in the Islanders Apaka’s 8-3 win over its Asut counterparts. Tristin Guile and Daniel Lanquin also scored for Islanders Apaka. Anthony John, Tom Park, and David Okuhama scored for Islanders Asut.

Community First Dededo Soccer Club defeated Sidekick SC 5-2 with two goals from Carlo Cortez and one each from Jesse Rojas, Kyle Lagrimas, and Clark Pacay. Arvin Ramachandran scored both goals for the Sidekick SC.

Chris Cawili, Keita Yoshida, Alexander Errett and Raymond Macias all scored in the Strykers 4-1 win over the Wings Black. Inochi Recella scored for the Wings.

In the U14 division, the Strykers Red completed its dominance of the division, blanking the Wolverines to finish the entire season without allowing any goals.
