TOKYO – A strong ground game accounted for five touchdowns as American School In Japan opened its football season by routing outmanned Robert D. Edgren 51-0 on Friday at Mustang Valley.

Andrew Howe ran for a touchdown, caught a pass for another and was 4-for-4 on extra-point kicks. Four other ASIJ backs rushed for a touchdown each and Fayaz Majid returned a fumble 12 yards for a score.

“We ran the ball pretty well and didn’t make a lot of mistakes for our first game; we were happy about that,” said John Seevers, who enjoyed a successful start to his 40th season on ASIJ’s coaching staff.

The win came against an Eagles team that brought just 17 players to ASIJ, and ended up losing a key one, Austin Price, to a right-leg injury; he was transported to Yokota Air Base hospital. No immediate word was available on his condition.
