It seems that there is a bit of a quarterback tandem in the works here at Mitakihara University. Quarterbacks Haruyuki Arita and Nic Johnson teamed up to lead Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi to a 252-42 steamrolling of the New Mexico Lobos in a pouring rainstorn at Mitakihara Stadium in Mitakihara Town, B.C. on Homecoming 2050.

Arita passed for 647 yards and nine touchdowns while rushing for 239 yards and four more majors. Johnson passed for 104 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 402 yards and seven scores. Halfback Rob Wade ran for 192 yards and three touchdowns, halfback Tommy Washington rushed for 74 yards and three more scores and fullback John Nelson ran for 118 yards and two majors. Also with a touchdown on the ground were halfback Marques Murray, backup quarterback Brendan Lewis and wide receiver Matt Hopkins.

Wide receiver Trey Lester led the receivers with seven catches for 231 yards and five touchdowns, both career-bests. Tight end Travis Murphy caught six passes for 122 yards and a score, Wade caught six passes for 145 yards and two majors and wideout Takumu Mayuzumi caught three passes for 92 yards and a touchdown. Also with a receiving touchdown were wideouts Reggie McFadden and Timothy Fernando.

Wideout Kelvin Sanders led the blockers with 29 pancakes while right guard Desi Wilcox added 19 pancakes, Fernando had 15 and tight Craig Hood had 13. Defensively, strong safety Vince Wolfe and cornerback James Reyes led in tackles with 11 but this was a day for the pass rush. Left end Ryan Morris and right end James Curtis had five sacks each. Cornerback Charles Greene had three interceptions, including one returned 72 yards for a score.

"The conditions were tough but I think our players relished the opportunity to execute in these conditions, such glamorous conditions at that," said Coach Kaname. "Don't know if it will rain in Fresno next week, but hopefully the conditions will be a bit better over there when we face the Bulldogs."

Mitakihara improve to 7-0 and hit the road next week to face Fresno State.
