TOKYO — The Mustangs would have preferred a different outcome, but for the first time in school history American School In Japan hosted a night football game Saturday at its newly lighted, field-turfed stadium.

DeEric Harvin ran for a touchdown and threw his eighth TD pass of the season, sparking Yokota to a 29-0 victory over ASIJ.

It was the Panthers’ Pacific-record 41st consecutive regular-season victory.

“It was great,” Yokota coach Tim Pujol said of playing night ball at Mustang Valley. “The field is super-nice, the lighting is very good. It’s a real pleasure. It’s a great thing.”

The Panthers improved to 2-0; ASIJ dropped its season opener for the second straight year.

Harvin went 5-for-7 for 101 yards, including a 69-yard TD pass to Phillip Williams.

Yokota’s Tony Presnell ran 13 times for 121 yards, including a 31-yard scoring run. Anthony McNeill returned from an ankle injury and ran for 89 yards on 13 attempts.

Derek Seward sparkled on defense for Yokota, returning an interception 21 yards for a score and recording a safety on a punting down. Andrew Conkling and Harvin each recovered fumbles for Yokota.

The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but was postponed due to Typhoon Fitow.

GuamSimon Sanchez 22, Guam High 12: At Upper Tumon, the Panthers’ dream of winning their first two games for the first time in school history came crashing down at the hands of league co-leader Simon Sanchez.

It was a back-and-forth battle for three quarters, but Franklin Sojo’s 80-yard touchdown on a kick return in the fourth gave the Sharks (2-0) the lead for good at 15-12.

The return was preceded by Chris Brown’s second touchdown of the game, a 95-yard interception return that put the Panthers (1-1) on top 12-7. Brown also caught an 85-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter from Paul Craimins, who was 5-for-13 for 141 yards.

Penalties and lack of proper tackling doomed the Panthers, coach Brandon Miller said.

“We’ll still be strong. We’ll bounce back,” Miller said. “They need to realize that they have to play as a team and work harder.”
