MARINE CORPS AIR STATION IWAKUNI, Japan – Matthew C. Perry won its second football game in as many starts Saturday against a Robert D. Edgren team that may have played its last game of the season due to injuries.
Caleb Ricafrente, a senior back, rushed for three scores, giving him eight touchdowns on the season, and the Samurai shut out the Eagles 23-0 in a game called with 4 minutes, 23 seconds left in the first half when Edgren ran out of players. The Eagles brought 14 and had 10 left when the game was halted.
“They didn’t have enough to continue,” Samurai coach Frank Macias said. Edgren coach Jeremy Sanders asked if the game could be stopped and “I said let’s call it,” Macias said. “We don’t want to hurt more kids unnecessarily.”
It was the sixth game forfeited in Pacific high school football this season, five in the first two weeks of the Guam season alone.
