Stripes Pacific high school football forecast, Week 3; Week 2 grid honors

Week 3 outlook


Zama American at American School In Japan
, 6 p.m. – After their 21-20 six-game losing streak-snapping win over Yokota last week, and holding a two-touchdown lead the previous week at Kinnick, can the Trojans do it again? Mustangs might have something to say about it. … Mustangs 17, Trojans 15.
Yokota at Nile C. Kinnick, 7 p.m. – Try these numbers: 28 straight losses, 14-plus seasons, 5,439 days. Oct. 16, 1998. Red Devils 28, Panthers 0. All things must come to an end. … Red Devils 16, Panthers 13.

Guam High at Okkodo
, 7 p.m. – Panthers are playing with motivation and purpose in the early going, and they keep it going here. … Panthers 20, Bulldogs 7.
Father Duenas Memorial at George Washington, 7 p.m. – Only other game in town this week; Southern, still awaiting enough equipment to put its team on the field, will forfeit to defending league champion Simon Sanchez. This will be a battle of two of the island’s grand gridiron powers. … Geckos 21, Friars 19.


Kadena at Seoul American
, 2 p.m. – Sims Field has been a house of horrors for the Panthers over the years (see 2006, 2008 Division I football title games). This should be a pitched battle featuring the dazzling running of Kadena’s Justin Sego vs. Seoul American’s John Stoll and Max Weekley. … Falcons 14, Panthers 13.
Kubasaki at Daegu, 6 p.m. – Too many weapons for the Dragons in this inter-district, inter-division matchup. An excellent gauge for the Warriors to see where they stand, as was last Friday’s close loss at Seoul American. … Dragons 19, Warriors 15.

Last week – 4-2, .667.
Season – 8-3, .727.
