Boise State...sent to the glue factory!

Boise State...sent to the glue factory!

Bringing in the second string last Saturday against the Nevada Wolf Pack was a calculated move that was necessary for Mitakihara Magi head football coach Tatsuya Kaname because they had a short turnaround. Hours later, the team got on the ferry toward Vancouver International Airport and took off for Boise, Idaho ahead of the Tuesday midweek contest with the Boise State Broncos.

Sending in the first team this time, Coach Kaname's Madoka team was on point as the Magi left the hapless, punchless, gutless Broncos in the dust of the blue turf at Bronco Stadium, 167-62.

"Yeah, we knew we had to rest our starters because of the turnaround," said Coach Kaname after the game. "We wanted to keep the team fresh and our starters wanted to get out there and have a day out for once, and they did.

"The good thing about all this is that they get a good break ahead of the regular season finale against San Diego State. The coaching's staff going to decide, depending on the findings from the scouting report, on whether to activate the starters or the backups against the Aztecs two Saturday's from now. One thing's for sure: everyone's gonna be fresh."

Quarterback Invalid Name passed for 128 yards and a touchdown but ran for 321 yards and seven scores. A plethora of backs and receivers rushed for touchdowns: halfback Kohei Miyahara ran for 216 yards and two scores, backup quarterback Jeff Gross ran for 225 yards and three scores, halfback George Jackson ran for 126 yards and two scores, wide receiver Terrence Andrews ran for 100 yards and a major, wideout Karuta Kanda ran for 144 yards and a major, fullback Mike Dorsey ran for 32 yards and a major and wideout Adam Dotson ran for 24 yards sand a major.

Miyahara led all receivers with three catches for 72 yards and a touchdown. Right guard Desmond Minor led the blockers with 28 pancakes while wide receiver Charles Roland added 25 pancakes. Middle linebacker Jackie Bezzina led the defense with 30 tackles and a sack while cornerback Shinosuke Akasaka added two interceptions and defensive tackle Steele Ainsworth and right end Greg Anderson had a couple of sacks.

Mitakihara improve to 11-0 and conclude the regular season two Saturdays from now, when they travel to San Diego, Calif. to take on the San Diego State Aztecs, who are already eliminated from bowl contention.
