Docomo Pacific Moms League 2015 spring season begins

[April 29, 2015 - Harmon, Guam] Over 300 women from a record-high 16 teams took to the pitch in opening weekend of the Docomo Pacific GFA Soccer Moms League Spring Season at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

Of the 16 teams, four are new to this season, including the Docomoms, made up of players from Docomo Pacific.

“I was excited to join when Docomo Pacific put in a team for this league,” said Vanesalyn Villaverde, who works in the company’s marketing department. “This recreational league is a great outlet particularly for less experienced players or those who just want to be involved with a team, where you can have fun and really enjoy the game, without feeling intimidated. Our first match was so much fun getting back on the field again, cheering on all of our teammates, and representing our company, Docomo Pacific. We also have great coaches who’ve prepared us for our first match, while continuing to motivate us to improve for the rest of our matches this season.

Season finale set for women's intermediate soccer

[March 25, 2015 - Harmon, Guam] For some of the players in the Guam Football Association Women’s Intermediate 7-A-Side Recreational League, the 2015 spring season’s final week of matches on Sunday isn’t an end, but the beginning for the next season’s preparations.

“Though the season ends Sunday, it’s not really an end for us – we’ll still do co-ed futsal on Wednesday nights at the Agat gym and we’ll still continue practicing with our Queen Cobras moms team to help them prepare for their upcoming league – I’m excited to ‘begin’ again,” said Queen Cobras intermediate team goalkeeper Janice Piolo. “I’ve only been playing soccer for about two to three years – I joined University of Guam’s team when they entered teams in the Bud Light Women’s Soccer League and Bud Light Women’s Futsal League, but I’ve now been playing with Queen Cobras in the rec league. I never played in high school or middle school – I always wanted to try, but I never had the guts until now.

Soccer Moms still scoring goals through Week 4 play

For over a decade, Grace Perez attended her children’s soccer games, cheered them on, and ecstatically yelled when they scored goals.

Now, on the other side of the fence, with the Sidekick SC Sirenas in the award-winning Guam Football Association Soccer Moms League, scoring her first goal added to her love for the sport.

“I’ve seen my kids score goals and it always made me so happy, but to actually score one yourself – it’s just phenomenal, it’s a great feeling, the rush is so exciting,” Perez said. “When your team scores a goal, it really changes the dynamic of the team – for me, I was motivated to run faster and looked for more opportunities to score.

“Overall, though, soccer is a lot harder than it looks. It’s a lot of work to get to the goal, but it’s fun – I find the sport really fun. Playing in this league, I also learn more about the sport,” the Piti resident added.
