Harmon, Guam – With the final week of the Guam Football Association and The Score’s “Just Kick It” All-Girls Event quickly approaching, over 100 girls will have had additional match experience to help them during the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth League.

“The All-Girls Event is more about fun and I feel more free (to try different plays),” said 11-year-old Samantha Q. Fegurgur, who plays for Quality Distributors FC – at the U14 division in the youth league and U17 division in the all-girls event. “The youth league is more competitive, and there’s more pressure than the All-Girls Event.

“It’s good playing in both – I just have to adjust to my different teammates,” added the Harvest Christian Academy student.

Fegurgur scored a handful of goals during her team’s match against the ASC Trust Islanders. The Cobras and another Islanders team also played a match Sunday in the U17 division.

Before the U17 division teams took center stage at the GFA National Training Center, girls in the U8, U10, and U12 age divisions played festival-style matches, with coaches forming various teams with players regardless of their club.

Though the event will conclude Mar. 2 with its final matches, girls still are invited to join. All girls who attend the event will be placed on a team and gain playing experience. Players need only to present their GFA Youth ID card to play. Different colored vests are provided at the event to distinguish teams. U8, U10, and U12 players have 3 p.m. matches, while the U17 division plays at 4 p.m.
