Halfback/left outside linebacker John Kirigaya is making his way up the rankings as a recruit to keep an eye out for. Kirigaya ran for 344 yards and nine touchdowns and recorded a tackle for loss and a fumble recovery as Johnny Landry's Mitakihara Angels flew past the Kelowna Owls, 70-3, at Kelowna Secondary School in Kelowna, B.C. With the win, the MiTSS Angels improve to 4-0 on the year.

"We've been playing excellent football this season, getting positive results and making a lot of people on the island really happy," said Coach Landry after the game. "But as I mentioned before, we have to take everything one step at a time. Obviously there are some things we have to work on, like not making stupid penalties that slow out drive down, and also reducing the turnovers when Johnno is not on the field.

"Our coaches are here to stress that even though Johnno is our go-to man, not everything starts and ends with him. The rest of the team knows that it needs to pick itself up and get itself going. We want to be known as a balanced team, on which everyone can contribute to the performances we want and the results we need. Week by week, day by day, we'll make sure we're on our way to making that a reality."

Next week, Mitakihara hosts Vancouver College in the Flower Festival, part of Homecoming Week 2072. The winner receives possession of the Big Flower Cup, a five-metre tall gold cup that can be used to drink fresh British Columbia apple cider out of. Homecoming is scheduled for September 17 at 7 p.m. PT and will be televised by Radio Madoka and CMTS AM 900, the student-owned radio station affiliated with Radio Madoka.
