As a cost-cutting measure, DODDS flies E.J. King to Daegu, at far less expense than it would have to pay for flights to the Tokyo area or Misawa, where other DODDS Japan teams are based. It’s also a chance to finally pick up some wins for six of the eight teams, Osan’s boys (0-10) and girls (4-5-1), Daegu’s boys (1-8) and girls (0-6-2) and E.J. King’s boys (1-5) and girls (1-8). Seoul American’s boys enter the series 8-1 and the girls 4-3-2.Players to watch — Osan’s girls are fueled by their “Guam Connection” of Andrea Carandang (eight goals) and Evie Garrido (five). Daegu’s boys’ biggest luminary has been Henry Faivre (five goals), while E.J. King’s boys have gotten good production from Steven Ball and Thomas McGrath (six goals each).
