In the day’s other match, Heavy Hitters/Nutrition Mission Southern Heat defeated the Bank of Guam Strykers II 3-0 with two goals from Ha’ani Bettis. The Heat’s other goal came on a Strykers II own goal.

Quality Distributors is the lone undefeated team in the league, riding on a seven-match winning streak following its lone draw of the season in Week 4 with the Bank of Guam Strykers I. Quality’s goalkeeper, Chyna Ramirez, is the league’s Golden Glove winner, allowing the fewest goals in the most minutes played as a goalkeeper. Quality only allowed nine goals in 11 weeks of play.
