UOG's Elisha Benavente looks for a chance to score against Venue Slay.
The University of Guam Women's Soccer Team felt the pain of a complete collapse in the final match of the Guam Football Association's Bud Light Amateur Women's League game against Venue Slay that routed the Lady Tritons 6-0 on April 14 at the GFA National Training Center.
UOG and Venue Slay ended the season tied for first place in the league, but Venue Slay won the championship based on head-to-head scores. UOG defeated Slay 2-0 in the opening match between the two teams, the second match was a 0-0 tie, but with Slay's six-goal win in the final match-up, the team took a four-point advantage over the Tritons to win the championship, with UOG finishing second. Both teams had 12-2-1 records.
Slay took a 1-0 lead about five minutes into the match and then scored two more goals in the half to lead 3-0 at halftime. UOG played hard at the start of the second half, but Slay then scored three more goals in about a five-minute span midway through the second half, and the match was settled.
The Lady Tritons will return to play in the Women's Challenge Cup at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 28, against the Islanders FC, who finished 1-10 in the Women's Premier League.
