2017 ROBBIE WEBBER YOUTH LEAGUE SPRING SEASON KICKS OFF

The EFR Southern Cobras Black began their title defense with a 7-1 win over the Guam Shipyard Wolverines as upper age divisions of the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League officially began their Spring 2017 season at the Guam Football Association National Training Center Saturday.

PRESS RELEASE – The EFR Southern Cobras Black began their title defense with a 7-1 win over the Guam Shipyard Wolverines as upper age divisions of the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League officially began their Spring 2017 season at the Guam Football Association National Training Center Saturday.

The Cobras, winners of the U17 division in Fall 2016, retained most of their players as the league shifted the top age division to U18 for 2017.

“During the break between last season and this season, we had practice sessions and scrimmages, but I’m really excited that the league has finally started,” said Cobras’ Austin Rioja, a 16-year-old student at Southern High School. “As a team, we want to keep our title as champions and we’re working toward that. We have many players from last season returning and we’re also trying to incorporate new players on the squad.

“Playing in the youth league is a way for us to gain more match experience and to help develop our skills, preparing us for upcoming (IIAAG) high school soccer seasons,” the Santa Rita resident added.

Fellow Southern High School student and 2016 IIAAG Boys High School Soccer League All-Island First Team selection Seth Surber led the Cobras’ charge with a double hat trick in the win and Rioja scored the team’s other goal. Brandon Kong scored the Wolverines’ lone goal in the second half.

In other U18 matches, ASC Trust Islanders Betde defeated the Tigers 4-1 and the FC Barrigada Crusaders defeated the EFR Southern Cobras Grey. The other team in the division, Matson Southern Heat, received a bye on opening week.

In the U15 division, the EFR Southern Cobras defeated the ASC Trust Islanders Asut 9-0 and the Guam Shipyard Wolverines battled to a scoreless draw with FC Barrigada Crusaders.

In the U13 division, the Sidekick SC defeated the ASC Trust Islanders Apaka 6-0, Matson Southern Heat defeated Tumon Typhoons Soccer Club 5-3, Guam Shipyard Wolverines defeated FC Barrigada Crusaders 2-1 and Community First/Days Inn Dededo Soccer Club edged the MWR Trojans 4-3.

The U6 to U13 age division teams officially opened the 2017 Spring season Feb. 11.
