[August 28, 2018 - Harmon, Guam] Guam Shipyard outscored Quality Distributors 3-1 in the second half to capture the 2018 Bud Light Women’s Futsal League championship title with a 4-2 win Sunday afternoon at the Guam Sports Complex gym.

Guam Shipyard’s Olivia Elliott scored twice in the second half, including netting the eventual game winner with just about nine minutes left on the clock. Quality Distributors’ Jalana Garcia reduced her team’s deficit to just one goal three minutes later, but a goal by Guam Shipyard Arisa Recella with a little over a minute left to play sealed her team’s win.

Shyann Roberto scored Guam Shipyard’s lone goal in the first half and Alisia Barcinas scored Quality’s first-half goal.

Following the championship match, competing teams received their respective trophies from Guam Football Association General Secretary Micah Paulino. Paulino also presented individual awards to Quality Distributors’ Paige Surber and India Sheppard, the league’s 2018 Golden Boot and Golden Glove winners, respectively.

Surber won the Golden Boot race scoring 23 goals in seven matches, four more than second-place finisher Shyann Roberto of Guam Shipyard with 19 for the season. Last season’s Co-Golden Boot winner, Colleen Naden, finished tied for third place this year with Guam Shipyard’s Arisa Recella. Naden and Recella tallied 14 goals each for their respective teams this season.
