Undermanned Guam side repeats dominance over rechristened PH Lady Templars

By Ivan Saldajeno

TAGUIG--Despite playing until past midnight without any substitute, Guam still blanked a newly renamed Philippine team, 38-0, in their friendly at the McKinley Hill Stadium on Monday.

With the said venue reserved for the Coca-Cola Cup the entire Sunday, the match between the Gridiron Divas and the former Lady Punishers now known as the Lady Templars, was pushed to a 10:30 p.m. kickoff late Sunday night.

Guam, however, took advantage of the erroneous performance by quarterback Lean Taytay and immediately opened the 38-0 cushion before a string of injuries took place late in the match.

With a Guamanian player also getting hurt and the trend favoring her team, the match officials decided to call it a game at 12:30 a.m. Monday.

Still, Guam completed a repeat of its 56-7 victory over the Philippines last year.
