Quarterback Russ Opare passed for 268 yards and two touchdowns and halfback Drew Childs ran for 246 yards and five more scores as Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi cruised past the Army Black Knights, 80-25, at Mitakihara Stadium in Mitakihara Town. B.C. Halfback Kodaka Onodera ran for 182 yards and three touchdowns and fullback Corey Addy ran for 95 yards to pace a strong rushing attack for the Magi.

Wide receiver Marcus Mba caught six passes for 82 yards, wideout Larry Igiebor caught five passes for 80 yards, wideout Will Atsu caught four passes for 50 yards and a touchdown and Onodera also caught a pass for a score. Right guard Mitch Zango led the blockers with 25 pancakes, left tacxkle Mario Washington had 18 pancakes and left guard William Carter had 15 pancakes. Middle linebacker Ernest Macklin led the defense in tackling with nine tackles while cornerback Henry Waris had eight tackles and a sack.

"This was one of the quieter performances from our defense but I elected to give the defense a free pass today because our offense was so dominant on the field," said Coach Kaname after the game. "Today, the players on offense used a conservative attack that wore our Army defense as the match progressed. We have a long ways to go but don't be surprised if we stick to this in our next games."

Mitakihara improve to 7-0 and host the Kentucky Wildcats next week.
