THE highly favored teams of the NMIFA-PSS Interscholastic Soccer League triumphed in their games Monday at the NMI Soccer Training Center.
With a dominant performance, the Mallards of Garapan Elementary School 1 collected their second win by dismantling the Mount Carmel School Knights, 9-0.
Jazzroy Villagomez led GES 1 in the first half, igniting at the seventh minute mark with his first goal and then delivering three more goals in two-minute intervals while Evan Seguritan added his own goal in the 19th minute to give the Mallards a 5-0 advantage.
Due to the constant pressure applied by the Mallards, the MCS Knights could not score even as GES 1 delivered four more goals in the second half.
Villagomez scored at the 32nd and 34th minute marks while Seguritan added the finishing touches as GES 1 trounced MCS 9-0.
SVES vs WSR
The Canaries of San Vicente Elementary School 2 also made their way into the winner's circle after slipping past the Kingfishers of William S. Reyes Elementary School 1, 6-5.
The first half was filled with a series of exchanges. The Canaries showed their hunger by drawing first blood in the second minute courtesy of Zuriel Abejo but WSR's Izaiah Tenorio retaliated two minutes later to even the score.
After SVES found the back of the net again, WSR again evened the score. The exchange continued for the entire first half which ended in a 4-4 tie.
In the second half, SVES’ Abejo completed an offensive play with his second goal of the day, but, once again, WSR retaliated two minutes later thanks to Tenorio.
Ever persistent, Abejo scored again at the 39th minute mark and this time SVES’ defenses clamped down on WSR en route to a Canaries victory, 6-5.
