Guam – Defending champions Quality Distributors latched on to the fourth and final playoff spot in the Bud Light Women’s Futsal League following the final week of regular season matches at the Guam Sports Complex Gym.
After Quality dropped its Week 5 match to Hyundai, a Doosan Lady Crushers win over the Paintco Lady Strykers in the next match created a three-way tie for the final two spots in the playoffs. The Lady Strykers took the No. 3 position with minus-three goal differential, and Quality ranked at No. 4 with a minus-six goal differential. The Lady Crushers finished its 2014 campaign with a minus-twelve goal differential.
