08 Jan Women’s Futsal Matches on Sept. 15 to Determine Playoff Teams
Quality Distributors FC can clinch the No. 1-ranked spot in the playoffs of the 2013 Bud Light Women’s Futsal League in its final regular-season match against the University of Guam Tritons Sept. 15 at the Guam Sports Complex Gym in Harmon.
Quality (4-0-1), currently second in league standings behind the Paintco Lady Strykers (4-1-1), need at least a draw to move into first before the league playoffs. Quality picked up its fourth win with a 5-0 shutout of the dck Masters in Week 6 action. Current Golden Boot leader Paige Surber led Quality with four goals and teammate Nieves Cabreza added one for the winning team.
The Lady Strykers completed its regular season with a 4-1 win over the Doosan Lady Crushers. The Lady Crushers’ Skyylerblu Johnson kicked a buzzer beater from the right side near the centerline to help her team to a 1-0 lead at halftime, but the Lady Strykers scored four unanswered goals in the second half for the victory. Alexy Barbe finished with a hat trick and Kim Sherman chipped in one goal in the win.
Despite the loss, the Lady Crushers already has secured a playoff spot regardless of the result of its final match against Pika Soccer Club on Sept. 15.
Hyundai blanked Pika Soccer Club 3-0 in Week 6’s other match. Shana Spindel scored twice and teammate Ashley Besagar added one to Hyundai’s tally.
Hyundai (2-2-1) currently is holding onto fourth place in the league standings and next play the fifth-ranked dck Masters (2-3). Only the top four teams advance to the league playoffs and the Masters will need a win against Hyundai on Sept. 15 to nab the fourth spot. Hyundai needs at least a draw to cement its appearance in the playoffs.
The league takes a weeklong break and resumes Sept. 15 at 1 p.m. with the Doosan Lady Crushers taking on Pika Soccer Club. The UOG-Quality Distributors game follows at 2 p.m., followed by the Hyundai-dck Masters match up at 3 p.m.
All matches will be played at the Guam Sports Complex Gym in Harmon. There is no admission fee to watch the matches.
