Topasna, Elwell selected as referees for EAFF U15 tourney

[July 16, 2018 - Harmon, Guam] Football referees Michael Topasna and Josiah Elwell hope to learn as much as possible and gain a high level of international officiating experience to bring back to Guam at the East Asian Football Federation (EAFF) U15 Boys Tournament in Beijing, China beginning July 23.

“I’m really excited for this opportunity, especially because I was selected by Guam Football Association for it, and also because I’ve never traveled for sports before, so it will all be a new experience for me,” Elwell said. “I’ve been training at GFA almost everyday, reading up on the Laws of the Game every moment I can, and running on my own to improve my fitness to get ready for this tournament.

“Through the tournament, I hope to improve as a referee by learning from other referees there and course instructors during class sessions and games,” added the 18-year-old from Mongmong.
