Triple J Spring youth soccer continues with Week 2 games

[February 23, 2016 - Harmon, Guam] Since 10-year-old Izaiah Ravela of the ASC Trust Islanders put on his first pair of cleats three years ago, soccer has easily become his favorite sport to play and also to watch on television.

“My friends told me, ‘you should join soccer,’ so I asked my mom and she said ‘OK’ and let me play with Islanders,” Ravela said. “It’s my favorite sport. I like the feeling of scoring goals and making saves (as a goalkeeper).

“My brother and I practice skills at home that we see on TV – like a goalkeeper diving or jumping to stop the ball or tricks to shoot the ball. (Cristiano) Ronaldo is my favorite player to watch on TV – I want to try to shoot the ball like him,” the St. Paul Christian School student added.

“I prefer playing on the full field because it is bigger and there’s more space for passing the ball,” said Nacianceno, a sixth grader at Luis P. Untalan Middle School. “I was excited that we would be playing on a full size field this season, although after a while, it did get tiring running so much.

For some, this was their final match in the youth league and I’m happy for them, finishing with a championship title.

“I definitely want to help the Wings defend its title again next season with other new players moving up to the team in the fall,” added the John F. Kennedy High School sophomore, who has been playing soccer since he was six years old.
