Trojans, Eagles prepare to battle for D-II football host rights

The winner of Friday’s Division II showdown between visiting Zama and host Edgren at Misawa Air Base will host the Far East title game on Nov. 10. Thus, Friday’s game amounts to a semifinal, with the winner playing Korea D-II champion Osan.
“We want to be masters of our fate,” said Scott Bolin, coach of a Trojans team that went 6-33 the past five years and hasn’t had a winning season since 2012, when Zama won the second of its D-II titles.
