Harmon, Guam- In a rare instance, Community First Dededo Soccer Club goalkeeper Ivan Joshua F. Galutira moved back to the goal line in the goal as he watched the ASC Islanders’ Caylani Estoy prepare to take a penalty kick in the second half of a match of the U14 division of the Chevrolet Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League.
Referee Erlissa Delfin made sure Galutira was standing on the line before blowing her whistle to give Estoy the green light to take the kick. When the whistle blew and Estoy took her kick, Galutira dove to his left and secured the shot, keeping his clean sheet and helping his team defeat the Islanders.
Galutira’s teammates Tyler Pangelinan and Kennedy Macatuno scored for Community First in the win, played on the lower turf pitch at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.
