PRESS RELEASE – Teams Bumachacha and Dudus were crowned champions of their respective age divisions at Guam Football Association’s first-ever 8v8 Magahaga All-Girls Soccer Tournament Saturday at the GFA National Training Center.

Bumachacha, consisting mainly of players from Guam’s national program born in 2005 or 2006, dominated the tournament, rounding out an 11-0 victory against Sutera in the division’s championship match.

Dudus took home the championship trophy in the tournament’s younger age division – Group B for players born in 2007 or 2008 – with a 14-2 win over Raiders Blue in the Group B championship match. 

In cross-divisional play, Dudus was the lone team to keep Bumachacha under eight goals scored and also slipped past upper division finalists Sutera 5-4.
