“We are all very pleased with today’s result,” said Maggie Phillips, Guam U19 Women’s National Team Head Coach. “We knew coming in that today’s game would be a stepping stone for Game 2 against Uzbekistan. Today, we worked to reinforce the playing style we have implemented over the last year. We started a little slow, but after calming down and getting into a rhythm, the girls were able to execute wonderfully.

“The icing on the cake was the pure enjoyment seen on the faces of each one of our players. Tonight, we let them celebrate and enjoy – tomorrow we get back to work and focus on Game 2, as it will be a difficult and high-paced game,” Phillips added.

Hannah Cruz and Lauren Phillips led all scorers with a hat trick each in the win. Isabella Bass, Sabrina Kenney, Isa Whalen, Rylee Guzman, and Ysabella Vasquez also put their names on the official score sheet with one goal each. Guam’s other goal came on a Maldives own goal in the 62nd minute.
