NAPA Rovers make it five-straight with win vs LOA Heat

[May 29, 2018 - Harmon, Guam] Perennial Budweiser Soccer League champions NAPA Rovers FC secured their fifth-straight title over the weekend, but not without an incredible fight from finals debutant Lots of Art Heat in a 4-3 contest at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

With the score at 3-3 in the closing minutes of the match, the Rovers’ Mark Chargualaf managed to maneuver through Heat defenders to find space for a shot on goal, only to have the ball parried by Heat goalkeeper Ryan Root. Before Heat defenders were able to recover, Rovers’ Matt Robles followed up with a right-footed shot inside the goal box for the eventual game-winner.

The Rovers had the upper hand early in the first half with a goal from captain Chargualaf in the 15th minute, but eight minutes later, speedster Gideon Tyquiengco nearly sprinted the entire length of the pitch, moved into the penalty area with Rovers defenders scrambling to catch him, and dished the ball off to A.J. Root for the finish to level the match.
