Maybe Mitakihara Magi football head coach Tatsuya Kaname is telling his players to take it easy. Or maybe it's the work of the football gods forcing shortened games for reasons unknown. Whatever the case may be, it was a modest beatdown by the Magi gridders, who rolled past the San Diego State Aztecs, 42-7, at Mitakihara Stadium in Mitakihara Town, B.C.

Once again, the start of the show was halfback D.W. Hinoi. Ike Ike passed for 154 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 116 yards and four more scores. Halfback D.W. Washington ran for 108 yards and a touchdown while wide receiver Jon James caught four passes for 88 yards and a major.

Wide receiver Trey Lester led the blockers with 10 pancake blocks, while cornerback Tony Hubbard led the defense in tackles with eight, including three for a loss. After the game, Coach Kaname dropped a major hint regarding next week's gameplan.

"We will most likely start the backups next week against Hawai'i," Coach Kaname said after the game. "Our second team is looking to make the most of some badly-needed playing time, and I am confident we can get it done and give it to them. It's also going to depend on the Rainbow Warriors' performance this week, but in the end, it will be a game-time decision."

Madoka improve to 9-0 and host the Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors next week on Pacific Islands Heritage Night.
