Not even a contest. Mitakihara Magi head football coach Tatsuya Kaname wanted to send out the backups against the Fresno State Bulldogs, but with the game being the designated Game of the Week, he reluctantly played the starters, who routed the visitors 170-21 at Mitakihara Stadium in Mitakihara, B.C.

"The networks told us to send our strongest team possible, so we had to bring out the starters," said Coach Kaname. "I guess it's nice to be in a few Games of the Week, but at the expense of other great teams? Kind of a bit too much. Other than that, this was a good exercise for our playmakers and hopefully we can build on that next week.

"This was also a good day for our recruits, who are visiting the campus and want to be impressed with what they see. Hopefully they were impressed with what they saw and they consider being a part of the Mitakihara Family. As for us, our focus now turns to UNLV."

Wide receiver Avery Clark passed for 315 yards and two touchdowns while quarterback Damion Roberson ran for 256 yards and four scores. Halfback Cory Jackson ran for 240 yards and three touchdowns, halfback Kyle Ryan ran for 289 yards and three majors, fullback Red Eilands ran for 74 yards and two scores, wideout Dallas Williams ran for 117 yards and two majors, and wideout Adam Dotson ran for 36 yards and two more touchdowns. Also with a touchdown on the ground were Clark and halfback Brandon Williamson.

Williams led all receivers with six catches for 140 yards and a touchdown. Jackson also caught six passes, this time for 84 yards and another major. Right tackle Blake Morris led the blockers with 29 pancakes, while left tackle Freddie Price added 28 pancakes. Middle linebacker David Smith paced the Morning Rescue defense with 17 tackles. Cornerback Mike Walker and left end Chad Estes had two sacks each. Walker, cornerback David Phillips and cornerback Lee Matthews had an interception each.

Mitakihara up their record to 8-0 and return to action next week on the road against the UNLV Rebels.
