Youth soccer players enjoy Week 2 of Triple J league

[March 1, 2015 - Harmon, Guam] For youth soccer athletes, having to miss a match in the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth League can put a damper on their Saturday.

“I was sad that I couldn’t come to my first game on opening day because I was sick,” said Cameron Bordallo, who plays for the Orange Crushers FC in the U10 division. “I’m happy that I was able to play in my team’s second game, though. I really like soccer – it’s the only sport I play. I like playing soccer because it’s fun – you get to play the sport with your teammates and kick the ball around a lot.

“I scored one goal for the team today, but I hope to score a lot more in the league,” added the 8-year-old student at Bishop Baumgartner Memorial School.

Wings Red take U17 title in youth soccer

The Wings Red managed to wrest the U17 division title of the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League from the ASC Trust Islanders Betde after meeting the minimum requirement – a draw – in the final week of upper division matches at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

A Wings Red draw with the Southern Heat in Week 10 gave the Islanders (9-1-1) a glimmer of hope to repeat for a division title that the team held through 2013, but the urgency of their must-win situation against the Wings Red (9-0-2) came late in Week 11.

After the Wings Red pulled ahead with a 4-1 lead by halftime, the Islanders began their comeback with just 10 minutes left into the deciding half. A pair of goals from Sora Recella put the Islanders within one and in the 80th minute, Nick Cabuhat connected on a rebound from a shot by teammate Ryan Quitugua to force the 4-4 draw.

Teams adjust to windy conditions in youth soccer

Major adjustments were necessary for shots, goal kicks, corner kicks and throw-ins due to the weekend’s windy conditions in Week 3 of the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

“Especially on corner kicks, it was so hard to control the ball,” said 11-year-old Mark Iseke, who plays for the Wings U12A division. “The wind was pretty strong and it made some plays difficult.”

Iseke and his Wings team attuned well to the day’s weather and managed to shut out defending champions Guam Shipyard Wolverines in a re-match of last season’s final. Iseke and teammate Kyle Halehale led all scorers. Niclas Vavra and Iseke’s twin brother Matthew, also scored in the contest.

“We learned more about our opponents after last season and got better as a team,” Iseke said. “In this match, we were able to find more opportunities to pass through them and take shots.”
