Battle of South unbeatens, North winless highlight Saturday's USFJ-AFL slate
Published: May 13, 2010
Where Saturday's early U.S. Forces Japan-American Football League game is concerned, somebody from the North Division is gonna get well. Misawa (0-1) makes the 10-hour trip down the Tohoku Expressway to visit Yokosuka (0-2) in a battle of teams that combined to win the first nine league titles prior to Foster capturing the 2009 crown. Kickoff is 2 p.m. Saturday at field-turfed Berkey-By-The-Bay.
The nightcap, at Kadena Air Base, pits a pair of South Division unbeatens. Kadena, fresh off its 24-14 road win at Misawa last Saturday, takes on a Joint Task Force squad that handed Foster its first loss in USFJ-AFL play, 13-6 last Saturday. Kickoff is 6 p.m. at either McDonald Stadium or Ryukyu Middle School.
