The UOG Tritons have ran their record to 29-12-1 the past two years, with the first year being in the Guam Football Association's D2 League, where the Tritons finished fourth and the UOG team finished 3rd in 2017-18 in the GFA Budweiser Premier League (One League), reaching the semi-finals of the Premier League Playoffs.

The Tritons will play in the GFA Division I League in 2018-19 or the "Premier League" depending on what league will be sponsored by the GFA next season.
