Masakada overwhelm NMI 7-0 in EAFF tourney opener

The Masakada, Guam women’s national football team, opened the EAFF Women’s East Asian Cup Round 1 tournament with a dominating 7-0 performance over the Northern Mariana Islands in front of close to 1,000 spectators at the Guam Football Association National Training Center Sunday.

“It’s never easy to score goals, but we did the job,” said Sang Hoon Kim, head coach of the Masakada, after the match. “The team from NMI seemed to play more defensively from the beginning and looked mostly for counterattack opportunities. With our opponents playing more of a defensive game, it was hard to get passes around their back line. We needed to try different combination plays and some worked.

“From early practice sessions, I’ve always stressed to the players that what I need from them is to play as a team and they did that in this match. It was a good result,” added Kim.
