One-sided victories dominated the opening games in the 2012 NMIFA Youth Fall League.
In the girls U15 division matches last Saturday at the Hopwood Junior High School Field, MP United topped Tan Holdings FC, 5-1, while Shirley's FC cruised past Paire FC in the second, 7-1.
Jan Nasia Travilla anchored MP United's debut triumph, scoring four goals, while Savannah Delos Santos made the other goal for the winning team. Tan Holdings avoided a shutout in Week 1 of the girls U15 league after getting one goal from Krizel Mae Tuazon.
In the Shirley's-Paire tussle, Marielle Gariguez and Kristina Costales drilled two goals each for the former, while Nica Gariguez, Alexa Vergara, and Diana Maniacop added one apiece. Paire's only game in the match was courtesy of Guinevere Borja.
Matansa Football Club is also entered in the league and will have its first game this weekend after getting a bye in Week 1.
MP United 14, Tan Holdings 0
MP United was also victorious in the boys U15 opener, as it clobbered Tan Holdings last Friday at the Oleai Sports Complex Field.
Dakota Hall was all over the place in MP United's big debut, firing five goals. Scott Kim contributed three, while John Diego Masga and Daniel Lim chipped in two apiece. Amir Abes and Ryota Ito also lit up the scoreboard for defending champion MP United.
Paire 4, Shirley's 1
In the other boys U16 match, Joel Fruit nailed a pair of goals to list Paire FC past Shirley's.
Fruit made both goals in the first half and he received help from Ivan Seo and Gideon Borja, who found the back of the net once to give Paire a good start in the five-team field.
Matansa Football Club completes the group and will debut in the fall season this weekend.

In the other U18 match, Paire edged defending champion MP United-1, 2-1. Match summary in the Paire-MP United-1 tiff did not indicate who scored for opposing squads.
