Mitakihara believes it has an "outside shot" after Hawai'i shutout

Mitakihara believes it has an "outside shot" after Hawai'i shutout

No one is expecting Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi to run the tables and return to the BCS National Championship Game. But don't tell that to the Magi football players, who shut out the Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors, 101-0, at Mitakihara Stadium in Mitakihara Town, B.C., on Saturday afternoon.

"I think we have a solid chance at sneaking in," said quarterback Ricky Cojuangco, who passed for 306 yards and four touchdowns. "Sure, there's a few teams ahead of us that also have a chance at punching their ticket but they might falter and if they falter, we have an opportunity to move up. So it's too early to say that the best bowl game we'll qualify for is the Rose Bowl Game. There's a lot more games that need to be played."

Halfback Rajiv Singh ran for 281 yards and two touchdowns, halfback Dan Roxas ran for 128 yards and two more scores, wide receiver Xavier Cooper caught four passes for 84 yards and two touchdowns and wideout Tony Graham Bell caught three passes for 93 yards and two majors.

Left guard Randall Bancey and left tackle Mark Nkrumah had 14 pancakes, while center James Brantley and right guard Jamal Ali Muhammad added 13 pancakes. Left end Jevon Pace, the grandson of the late Ohio State offensive tackle Orlando Pace, paced the defense with seven tackles and three sacks. 

Mitakihara improve to 10-0 and conclude their regular season home campaign next week on Magia Day 2060 against the Wyoming Cowboys.
