PRESS RELEASE – Just three weeks into the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League, newcomers to the sport continue to learn and have fun with every match and practice sessions with their clubs.

“When my sister started playing soccer, I wanted to try too because I thought it would be fun to try too,” said 9-year-old Hayden Duenas of the Tumon Typhoons Soccer Club. “I just started this season, and it is really fun to play – I like the sport a lot. So far, I’ve only scored goals at practice and I haven’t yet scored one in the league, but before the season is over, I’d like to score some goals for my team.”

Duenas and close to 1,800 youth players enjoyed windy, overcast conditions at the Guam Football Association National Training Center for Week 3 matches of the youth league Saturday.

In the U17A division, the Wings Black defeated the ASC Trust Islanders Asut 3-1 with two goals from Takumi Ito and one from Sena Morimoto. Noah Duenas scored for the Islanders.

Quality Distributors defeated the Southern Cobras 5-0 with two goals each from Joshua Cepeda and James Jeong and one from Sam Larkin.
