"Slick" Nic Johnson sends Madoka away to a win

"Slick" Nic Johnson sends Madoka away to a win

This week, Mitakihara Magi head football coach Tatsuya Kaname elected to activate the second string and give quarterback Nic Johnson some playing time. Johnson passed for 168 yards and a touchdown but it was his legs that told the story. He rushed for 413 yards and five majors as the Magi eased past the Nevada Wolf Pack in the snow at Mitakihara Stadium in Mitakihara Town, B.C., 164-7.

In addition to Johnson, the usual suspects were at the helm toting the rock. Halfback Rob Wade ran for 320 yards and three touchdowns, halfback Marques Murray ran for 176 yards and three majors, fullback John Nelson rushed for 54 yards and five scores, halfback Fred Jackson rushed for 121 yards and three touchdowns and backup quarterback Brendan Lewis also ran for a major.

Wide receiver Timothy Fernando led the receivers with three catches for 99 yards and a touchdown while fellow wideout Justin Rucker added 10 pancakes. Right tackle DeMario Childs, though showing promise with his 10 pancakes, proved he still has a ways to go with stopping the pass rush after allowing three sacks.

Speaking of sacks, left end Chris Stephens made five sacks to pace the Magi's pass rush. Mitakihara's leading tackler on Saturday was cornerback Chris Robinson with 15 tackles and an interception. Defensive tackle David Williams and right end James Curtis added three sacks, and Williams also recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Madoka take the week off before concluding a successful home stretch on Oct. 30 against the Fresno State Bulldogs.
