Madoka cruise past Miami, 145-27

Madoka cruise past Miami, 145-27

Quarterback Akiyuki Kaname passed for 491 yards and four touchdowns and ran for 379 yards and six more scores as Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi bullrushed their way past the Miami Hurricanes, 145-27, at Mitakihara Stadium.

"He's been a gem throughout his young career," Coach Kaname said of his son. "A real asset to our team and a student of the game. I'm proud to be his coach and his father. But it wasn't just him. Shaun [Kirigaya] and Dax [Hasegawa] made a lot of big plays on defense, Jack Mac [John McDonald] was stellar carrying the football...everyone on both ends did the work.

"Because of their work, I'm giving the first string the week off against BYU and starting the backups to give them experience."

Halfback John McDonald ran for 216 yards and four touchdowns, fullback Gale Miketsukami rushed for 123 yards and three majors and halfback Jerrell Little ran for 92 yards and a score.

Wide receiver Andrew Blount led the receivers with eight catches for 156 yards and a touchdown. McDonald caught four passes for 68 yards and a major and wideout John Brown hauled in four catches for 134 yards and a score. Also catching a pass for a touchdown was wide receiver Ron Takakamo.

Right guard Robert Kane led the blockers with 25 pancakes while only giving up one sack. Blount also contributed to the run blocking with 24 pancakes.

Middle linebacker Shaun Kirigaya led the tackles on the Magi defense with 28 but it was defensive tackle Daisuke "Dax" Hasegawa that dominated on defense. Hasegawa had 19 tackles, 11 TFL and 9.5 sacks to lead the Magi pass rush.

Madoka improve to 10-0 and will host Brigham Young next week.
