Public Schools Continue Domination

The F.B. Leon Guerrero Hawks got a hat trick from Savanna Smau en route to a 4-0 victory over the San Vicente Braves Friday night at the 4th Annual Middle School Girls Soccer Festival at the Guam Football Association headquarters in Harmon.

Abby Iriarte added the other goal as the Hawks resurrected their dominance of the middle school festival. The Hawks have now won three editions of the tournament under the guidance of head coach Jack Kido. The only other team to win the first-place match has been the Oceanview Knights in last year’s tournament.

Mt. Carmel Phoenix 2, Agueda Pirates 1: Destiny Castro and Mamis Blas each scored to lead the Phoenix in a come-from-behind win over the Pirates. The win allowed the Phoenix became the only private school to win against public school opponents in the festival.

Vicente S.A. Benavente Roadrunners 1, Bishop Baumgartner Obispos 1 (Roadrunners win shootout 3-1): The match went straight to penalty kicks after the Roadrunners’ Kian Castro and the Obispos’ Kaeliana Taitano each scored in regulation. Cianna Reyes, Jestine Sablan, and Mika Rosario all found the back of the net to secure the dramatic victory for the Roadrunners.
