Warriors take down Angels with nailbiting finish

by Dave Delgado

Guam - The Shell Hal's Angels and Pepsi Warriors treated fans to an exciting game of football yesterday at the UOG Field. Last year's champs scored the first touchdown of the game after Jared Ada pulled down a pass that put them in good field position. Joaquin Pangelinan punched it in from a couple of yards out.

Pepsi had their running game going for them Michael Borja picking up the first down here to keep the chains moving. As a team the Warriors rushed for 120 yards on the ground. Pespi's Jeremiah San Nicolas picked off a Stephen Phillips pass and returned it for a touchdown to give the Warriors their first score of the game. San Nicolas taking it down his teams side line behind a wall of blockers.

The game went down to the wire after the Warriors fumbled, resulting in an Angel's touchdown. Pepsi quarterback Tommy Morrison would later hit wide receiver Craig Quichocho for what was eventually the game-winning touchdown with less than 2 minutes left in the game, the Warriors held on for the win 23-19.
