YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan — A balanced rushing attack fueled by Kacey Walker and Chauncey Jamerson powered Nile C. Kinnick to a rare shutout victory over Yokota on Friday.

Walker rushed for two touchdowns and passed for another and Jamerson ran for two more scores. The Red Devils gained 400 yards on the ground as a team, spoiling the Panthers’ homecoming with a 35-0 shutout at Yokota’s Bonk Field.

“We were really balanced,” coach Dan Joley said of a Kinnick team that had five players rushing for plus-yards. “That’s what made me happy. We had so many positive contributors. That’s the beauty of the spread offense. If you can get everybody contributing, it’s tough to defend.”

It was the first time the Red Devils had shut out the Panthers since a 28-0 victory on Oct. 16, 1998. It was the first Yokota home loss by shutout since Oct. 17, 2009, a 35-0 defeat against Kadena.

“Football is a game of blocking and tackling and winning the line of scrimmage, and they did a lot better than we did,” Panthers coach Tim Pujol said. “They opened the holes for their backs and closed the holes against ours. Time of possession was astronomically in their favor.”
