MEN’S SOCCER LEAGUE BACK IN ACTION SATURDAY

The Budweiser Soccer League returns to action Saturday evening.

PRESS RELEASE – The Budweiser Soccer League returns to action Saturday evening at the Guam Football Association National Training Center after taking a two-week holiday break.

Immediately before the break, the Rovers (6-1) secured its first-place spot in league standings by defeating front runner contender Guam Shipyard (5-2) with a 3-1 victory. Ian Mariano, Natsuki Recella, and David McCallum scored one each for the winning team. Andre Gadia scored Shipyard’s goal.

Shipyard, the only team to have defeated the Rovers this season, needed at least a draw to nab first place going into the league’s two-week break; however, in the teams’ most recent fixture, Shipyard was without its top scorer Cameron Giles and the Rovers added back Ian Mariano, the league’s Golden Boot front runner, and Jason Cunliffe in their lineup. The pair took a break from the team’s first match-up with Shipyard, a 2-1 loss.

In Division II play, the Rovers FC DII team lead the pack with a perfect 7-0 record going into the break, followed by league newcomer, Islanders FC (5-1-1). The Pago Bay Disasters (4-2-1) currently are in the bronze position followed by Tumon (4-3) and FC Beercelona (3-3-1). Big Blue, Shinko Siheky FC, Strykers FC DII, Crushers FC and United Masters follow in division standings, respectively.

Family FC (5-1) leads the Masters Division with a slight edge over the Rovers FC Masters (5-2). Big Blue is next, followed the Strykers Masters and IT&E/IP&E, respectively.
