U16 Women’s Soccer Seeing Success


Guam- The Guam Under-16 Women’s National Team earned their second win of the 2011 AFC Women’s Championship qualifiers, defeating hosts Philippines 2-0 yesterday in Manila.  Guam Football Association President Richard Lai noted that this is the time in GFA history that a team has won two games in a row in a Qualifier competition.

Tayler Kukes gave Guam the lead with her second goal of the tournament in the 33rd minute and Krystiana Martinez added Guam’s second, and also her second in the tournament, in first-half stoppage time. Guam goalkeeper Chyna Ramirez earned her second straight shutout.
