Bank of Guam finishes atop ladies league

PRESS RELEASE – The Bank of Guam Strykers clinched the 2022 Bud Light Women’s Soccer League Premier Division championship title early following its scoreless draw with Quality Distributors in Week 5 play at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

The Strykers (3-0-2) will finish at the top of the league’s leaderboard regardless of the results of this weekend’s matches, the last set for the 2022 season. Quality (2-1-2) remains in the No. 2 position through Week 5, but will face Guam Shipyard in a showdown for the league’s second-place trophy Sunday at 8 p.m.

Guam Shipyard (1-1-3) defeated the Metro Pacific Islanders FC 3-1, picking up a needed victory to stay in contention for a silver finish.

In the league’s Amateur Division matches, the GPSI Southern Cobras survived a scare to slip past the Bank of Guam Strykers II 3-2 in a battle of undefeated teams Friday evening’s match. With the score level at 1-1 at halftime, the Strykers II struck first at the 49 th minute mark on a shot by Isabella Sasamoto.

The team held on to the slim 2-1 lead for over 20 minutes before the Cobras Cindy Maestrecampo leveled the match again in the 73 rd minute. Maestrecampo completed a hat trick four minutes later to seal the eventual win for the Cobras.

Christine Cruz scored the Strykers II’s first-half goal.

In Sunday evening’s match, Gina Naburn scored the eventual game-winner for Mosa’s in the 78 th minute against the NAPA Rovers FC in a 3-2 contest.
