Centennial Can't Bottle Up Kirigaya As Angels Fly Away To Win

Centennial Can't Bottle Up Kirigaya As Angels Fly Away To Win

After Johnny Landry's Mitakihara Angels conceded a kickoff returned 91 yards for a touchdown with 3:00 to go in the first quarter, he delivered an impassioned speech to the players. "Don't let this discourage you!" Coach Landry said. "Now they mean business. I want one of their punts returned for six. Don't give up on any play or any drive. Now is the time to rise up, counter up, and punch these punks in the mouth. It's go time, let's roll!"

The Angels responded by scoring 66 unanswered points en route to a convincing 73-6 blowout of the Centennial Centaurs at Centennial Secondary School in Coquitlam, B.C. Halfback/left outside linebacker John Kirigaya ran for 388 yards, caught three passes for 49 yards, scored eight offensive touchdowns and also had a sack.

"I told my brothers on the field, don't you dare give up on any play!" Kirigaya said. "When we were on fourth down, we went no huddle and I took it to them. I said to the guys, give it to me! I hate anyone that tries to take me down, I'll take matters into my own hands if I have to. I got a great supporting cast of players that also stepped up when they had to, and it's fantastic to know they wanted this win as much as I do. We never gave up on any drive. We got it done at all costs."

Mitakihara improve to 8-0 and return to action at home next week against the WJ Mouat Hawks.
