MANGILAO, Guam – Father Duenas Memorial finished a clean sweep of the Guam Interscholastic Football League’s regular season, blanking Guam High 33-0 on Friday at George Washington High School.
With the win, the Friars extended their Pacific-record winning streak to 70 games and captured the regular-season title at 5-0, all five by shutout. Guam High fell to 4-1 in a game in which the Panthers’ defense spent most of the time on the field.
“We’ve got more work to do,” Panthers coach Kevin Manns said. “We couldn’t get anything going on offense.”
There were some bright lights on defense for the Panthers. Cameron Brantley had a team-high 15 tackles, three of them sacks, forced four fumbles and recovered two. His brother Justin had six tackles, one for a loss. Matthew McNair and Judah Alcantara each had interceptions.
With the regular season over, the Panthers have drawn a first-round playoff bye and will play on Nov. 10 or 11 against the winner of Saturday’s George Washington-John F. Kennedy game.
“It was a hard loss, but we have a bye week to work on some things,” Manns said. “We’ll rebound, we’ll adjust, we’ll do better.”
