It wasn't the obscene mismatch everyone anticipated, but it was still a straightforward victory for Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi, who stormed past the Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors, 70-10, on Saturday night at the Sakura Bowl. Quarterback Ricky Cojuangco passed for 223 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 84 yards and two more majors to lead the Magi, ranked No. 1 in the polls through mid-October.

Halfback Dan Roxas ran for 146 yards and two touchdowns, halfback Billy Shaw ran for 136 yards and two majors, fullback James Stanley rushed for 127 yards and a score and wide receiver Johnny Muntari caught four passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns. Left tackle Micharl Aryee continued his stellar senior season blocking with 21 pancakes, while right tackle Andy Adusei added 11 pancakes.

This was one of the few games involving the Magi where there were zero turnovers on both sides. The end result was a clean game that saw the Magi ease through with the win. Defensive tackle Xavier Mpong was one of the bright spots for the Magi defense, making five tackles and three sacks. Cornerbacks Drew Clottey and Greg Essien led the way in tackling with six tackles each.

Madoka improve to 9-0 and face the LSU Tigers next week. This games is of significant importance in terms of the recruiting race, as the No. 1 rated tight end out of high school, MitSS TE Josh Yoshioka, is being pursued by LSU. Assuming that there is still space for him to make the recruiting class, this game will hopefully come a long way in making Yoshioka's decision.
