PRESS RELEASE – Experience comes in handy for youth soccer players in competitive divisions of the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League.

Playing the sport for just about a decade, 14-year-old Brennan Finona, formerly of Community First Dededo Soccer Club and now part of the ASC Trust Islanders Apaka, has managed to score at least once in each of his team’s matches this season, win or lose, at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

“Playing all these years in the youth soccer league, I’d say it really helps with player development,” said Finona. “Soccer is a team sport though, so having good communication with your teammates and working hard as a team to score goals and defend is what it takes to win.

“I wouldn’t be able to score any goals if it weren’t for my teammates passing the ball to me,” added the F.B. Leon Guerrero Middle School student.
