Pacific football Week 3 Fearless Forecast, Week 2 honors
By DAVE ORNAUER | STARS AND STRIPES Published: September 8, 2016
For now, it looks as if all eight teams will be ready to suit up for football action on Guam this week, first time this season no forfeits are expected.
But hold the phone. A couple of power generators on the island are on the fritz, meaning the power utility will likely be doing load-shedding power outages through the weekend. That might affect a game or two, since three of the four games are slated at night.
Korea, Division II
Daegu at Humphreys, 6 p.m. – While the three-time defending Far East Division II champion Warriors were successful in their season opener, the Blackhawks were more successful, but against a Korean team. How will that pan out when they face each other? … Blackhawks 18, Warriors 11.
Robert D. Edgren at American School In Japan, 5:15 p.m. – Mustangs take the first prep step toward a possible run at school-first Division I title glory against an Eagles team as physically small as its depleted numbers. … Mustangs 21, Eagles 7.
Father Duenas Memorial at Guam High, 7 p.m. – Defending league and regular-season champions already have a game under their belt, plus a week’s rest before facing the rusty Panthers, who’ve not played yet. … Friars 22, Panthers 8.
John F. Kennedy vs. Simon Sanchez at Dededo, 7 p.m. – Islanders are one of two league teams with more than a game under their belt. Regarding Sharks, see Panthers above. … Islanders 19, Sharks 9.
Seoul American at Kadena, 2 p.m. – For the visiting Falcons, the mantra should be take care of the football against a Panthers team that took advantage of most every turnover they forced in their opener. … Panthers 20, Falcons 6.
Japan, Division II
Zama at Matthew C. Perry, 10 a.m. – An early riser for both teams, but which will prevail, the one that fell back in the closing minutes against Yokota or the one that hasn’t played yet? … Samurai 14, Trojans 13.
Okkodo at Southern, 10 a.m. – A pair of cellar dwellers each trying to right the ship; Bulldogs at least have had the edge of on-field time. … Bulldogs 12, Dolphins 7.
Tiyan at George Washington, 7 p.m. – A Geckos team with the benefit of having at least played once against a Titans team that has yet to take the field. … Geckos 17, Titans 3.
