Football: Father Duenas wears down Guam on way to rout
MANGILAO, Guam – Travon Jacobs put the Guam Panthers ahead by two touchdowns with a pair of well-thrown scoring bombs Friday. And it looked like the first win in seven years over Father Duenas seemed possible.
Then, Kein Artero and the Friars offense happened.
The senior back shredded the outmanned Panthers defense for four touchdown runs as the Friars rallied from a 14-0 deficit, scored 47 straight points and routed Guam 47-14 to take sole possession of first place in the Interscholastic Football League.
