Despite not being able to defeat the Strykers in the team's last two fixtures, the Rovers prevailed on overall goal differential to officially finish on top of league standings above the Strykers FC. Both teams finished the season with 14-2-2 records and tied in points with 44. In head-to-head competition, both teams also finished tied, as the Rovers won the teams' first encounter 4-2, the Strykers won the teams' second fixture 7-0, leading up to the 2-2 draw. The Rovers, however, finish the season with a better goal differential - +91 compared to the Strykers' +65.

[April 23, 2015 - Harmon Guam] Goal differential is the only thing keeping the Payless Supermarkets Strykers FC from taking the top spot in the Budweiser Soccer League standings after its 7-0 win over Quality Distributors in a rescheduled match Wednesday evening at the Guam Football Association.

The Strykers FC (14-2-1) now boast the same record as league leaders Rovers FC, but the Rovers hold the edge with a +91 goal differential, compared to the Strykers FC's +65 goal differential. Both teams are tied in head-to-head competition, with the Strykers FC winning the teams' most recent fixture 7-0.

The league title will be determined after the two teams' final fixture Sunday at 7 p.m. The Rovers FC will need at least a draw to win the title for the second-straight season, while the Strykers will need a second-straight win against the current league leaders.

The Rovers FC (6-1) defeated Guam Shipyard (5-2) to stay in first place in league standings with a 3-1 win. Ian Mariano, Natsuki Recella, and David McCallum scored one each for the winning team. Andre Gadia scored Shipyard's goal.
