Kirigaya Breaks Loose As Mitakihara Dismantle Lord Tweedsmuir, 63-6

Johnny Landry's Mitakihara Angels took to flight and flew past the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers, 63-6, at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School in Surrey, B.C. Halfback/left outside linebacker John Kirigaya ran for 430 yards and eight touchdowns while making four tackles on defense. Even though Tweedy's defense were able to bottle up Kirigaya on a few plays, the grandson of former Mitakihara Magi assistant coach Shaun Kirigaya proved his pedigree by breaking through for big gains.

In one quarter, the third, quarterback Steve Merka handed the ball off to Kirigaya for touchdown runs of 14, 13, 19 and 47 yards. The Angels reeled off 35 unanswered points following Tweedy's only successful offensive series of the game, culminating with a 6 yard pass for a score. Apparently, Coach Landry's words resonated with the players and they were able to respond with a dominating second half based on the run.

"I told the boys, giving up a long drive like that is extremely unacceptable," said Coach Landry after the game. "We can't stop a long drive like that, we can forget about making the Subway Bowl, let alone win it. We have to do a better job at stopping drives like the one Tweedy dealt us in the second half. Hopefully, when we take on New West, that will be resolved."

Mitakihara improve to 6-0 and continue their season next week against the New Westminster Hyacks.
