    The final three regular season games were played this past weekend.

  • Friday started off with Guam High’s swift and lethal hit on the JFK Islanders. The Islanders made a game the first half with RB Hernden and WR Jesus both scoring touchdowns to keep JFK within two points. Juwan Jacobs, Terry Geller, Tegan Brown, and Austy Hines performed a 4×100 relay on the Islander’s defense with over 600 yards on offense. LJ Aguon is the offensive MVP hands down neary 1300 yards passing and 200 yards rushing. JFK is better than last year.
  • Okkodo scored 58 points the highest total for the IIAGG regular season. Calvin Muna had a pick-6 and threw a touchdown on a halfback option pass. A total of four pick 6’s were scored by the Okkodo defense. A running clock had to be implemented in second half otherwise Okkodo could of made a threat to FD’s 80 vs. Inarajan 0 record from 1994.
  • The Sharks beat the Friar’s 25-18. Sanchez kept FD scoreless until the late third quarter. Tyler Okiyama threw for 3 touchdowns to rally the Friars to almost tying the game on the last throw. The Shark’s defense though made the defensive stop in the end zone.  Daniel Cruz had another big game for the Sharks.
  • Week 7 Defensive Player of the Week – Calvin Muna – Okkodo DB: Had two pick 6 in win over Dolphins.
  • Week 7 Offensive Player of The Week – Daniel Cruz – Sanchez RB: Back to Back OPOTW for Daniel Cruz who rushed for 242 yards.

Quarterfinal Predictions

    Guam will have the distinction of being the first high school playoffs starting in the United States next weekend.

  • Sanchez vs. Southern – Southern’s season is not really about winning anymore. I believe Coach Jaime Rios is the man to eventually change that. Southern will finish 0-7. They are at 0-14 the past two seasons. The returning players will need to train in the offseason via weightlifting, playing others sports, and cardio conditioning. Putting a summer 7-on-7 team would help also. Also, how about the other villages in the South supporting this team by attending the upcoming playoff game. Sanchez is in beast mode. Sanchez 56 Southern 0.
  • FD vs. Okkodo – These two went tooth and nail the first time. I’m picking Okkodo which really would not be an upset. Okkodo 17 FD 16.
  • GW vs. JFK – I expect another close one. JFK 21 GW 20

 

Power Rankings

  • Guam High (5-1)
  • Sanchez (5-1)
  • FD (4-2)
  • GW (3-3)
  • JFK (2-4)
  • Okkodo (2-4)
  • Southern (0-6)
