On a day full of defensive plays and offensive misplays, it was Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi that played a cleaner game en route to a 223-24 victory over the Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

"That was not a pleasant game to watch if you wanted to see some offense," said Coach Kaname after the game. "Both defenses took over the stage. Even Hawai'i got a few safeties and turnovers off of us, so that's a testament to the aggressive mentality that our former assistant coach, Shu Ouma, installed down there.

"This wasn't an easy game for at first, but we kept on delivering punch after punch and we eventually got a cushion that we could build on, and we built on it in the fourth quarter. We plan to rest the starters next week and allow our backups a chance at proving themselves at Homecoming."

Quarterback Anonymous Anonymous passed for 307 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 341 yards and five more scores. Fullback Red Eilands ran for 228 yards and eight majors, halfback Cory Jackson ran for 196 yards and three touchdowns and halfback Kyle Ryan ran for 82 yards and two scores. Also with a touchdown on the ground was halfback Melvin Rawlins.

Wide receiver Allen Summers led the receivers with five catches for 111 yards and a touchdown while wideout Avery Clark caught four passes for 77 yards and a score. Right guard Micharl Coleman and Summers led the blockers with 31 pancakes each, although Coleman allowed one sack.

Middle linebacker Daiki Asuka III led the defense with 19 tackles and a sack while right end Jake Crawford had four sacks. Cornerbacks Joe Reed and Travis Everett had two interceptions each.

Madoka improve to 7-0 and return home next week for Homecoming 2047 against the Fresno State Bulldogs.
