The last time Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi were forced to run laps after giving up a safety at Mitakihara Stadium was November 9, 2047 against Nevada. Nearly nine years later, the Magi gave up a safety to San Diego State in their 101-23 blowout win over the Aztecs at the Stadium in Mitakihara Town, B.C. That meant for the first time in nearly a decade, the Magi football players were forced to run laps in their track suits: 43 of them.

"It's not something our players want to be proud of," said Coach Kaname after the game. "Our backups dropped the ball on this and didn't do a good job getting out of the endzone. We need to work on this and avoid these types of mistakes against good teams. Hawai'i is a few notches below us, but they are capable of scoring safeties when they are on their game. I have confidence that this will not happen a second time this year."

Despite all that, it was a good day for the Malaysian Sensation, halfback Tukul Abdul Rahman, who ran for 336 yards and six touchdowns. Halfback Tony Kalmar ran for 196 yards and three scores and quarterback Dean Amakusa passed for 251 yards and a couple of majors. Wide receiver Ethan Brink led the receivers with four catches for 72 yards and two touchdowns, while right guard Melvin Pitts and left tackle Charles Mitchell led the blockers with 14 pancakes. 

Right end Nick Colvin and defensive tackle Ryan Bowers paced the defense with 10 tackles each. Cornerback Gir Todafunk continued to argue his case for another Bednarik Award withy seven tackles and two interceptions, while middle linebacker Roman Evans added five tackles and two more interceptions. 

Madoka improve to 9-0 and host the Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors next week in Magia Day 2056.
