Shirley's Coffee Shop was crowned champion in the women's division of the 2012 Saipan Soccer School Summer Futsal League last Saturday after shutting out Xerox, 7-0, at the TSL Sports Complex in Gualo Rai.
Last Saturday was the final day of the double-round robin competition in the futsal league with Shirley's finishing on top of the six-team field with its 7-2-1 win-draw-loss record. The newly crowned champion defeated Wild Bill's, which earned a 6-2-2 card. Xerox placed third with its 5-1-4 card, followed by Baked Girls (4-1-5), IT&E Awesome (4-1-5), and Mellow Yellow (0-1-9).
Going into the last day of the women's league, Shirley's needed only a draw to clinch the crown, however Irish Pagarao and company would not settle for a tie, as they attacked Xerox's defense early en route to the shutout victory. Pagarao drew first blood with a left cross in the third minute while Jeraldine Castillo scored from the opposite end two minutes later. Yvonne Indalecio and Dianne Pablo also made it to the scoreboard in the first half for their 4-0 halftime lead. Pagarao, Indalecio, and Castillo also found the back of the net in the second half to complete Shirley's domination of Xerox.
