PRESS RELEASE

The University of Guam Women’s Soccer Team kept their undefeated streak going with a 4-0 victory over the Venue Sidekicks on Sunday afternoon in the Guam Football Association’s Bud Light Amateur Women’s League at the GFA National Training Center.

The Sidekicks came out strong and dominated the first few minutes of the first half, keeping the ball in their offensive end, but they could get a solid shot on goal and the Lady Tritons began to shift the ball to their offensive end of the field as the game moved forward.

UOG defense began to solidify during the match, as the Sidekicks could never break past the UOG defensive line to get a shot on goal and the Tritons began to move past the Sidekick defense for several fast break attempts on goal.

The Lady Tritons would open the scoring at about the 20 minute mark and would lead 1-0 at halftime and then score three goals in the 2nd half. Elisha Benavente  scored three times for the Lady Tritons and Koholali’i M. Maertens added a single goal. Ariya Cruz dished out 3 assists on the afternoon.

UOG is now 4-0-0 so far on the season and finishes the fall portion of the schedule next Sunday at 5:30pm against the Venue Slay team. Slay was the Spring 2018 D2 Champions while UOG was the D2 Champions in the Spring and Fall of 2017. But Team Slay did defeat the Tritons twice in regular season play during UOG’s Championship seasons while UOG defeated Team Slay each season for the Championship. UOG did not field a team during Team Slay’s Championship season.
