Mention the name "John Kirigaya," and you have officially mentioned the worst nightmare for the John Barsby Bulldogs. On the pink turf of Tatsuya Kaname Field at Mitakihara Stadium, Johnny Landry's Mitakihara Angels shut out the biteless Dawgs, 70-0. Kirigaya, who plays halfback and left outside linebacker, ran for 361 yards, caught two passes for 53 yards and scored eight total touchdowns. He also had three tackles, all for loss, and a sack.

If there was one word that would descrive the performance, music would cease to have meaning. It was a one-man symphony of domination, exacerbated by the fact that Barsby came into the match quaking in their cleats. You could see it in their faces, the question hanging over their heads, "How badly are they going to knock us into next week?" One word: bad.

"That's what you expect from Johnno," said Coach Landry after the game. "I talked to his father, Shaun, about the difference he brings to this team and he told me that he taught him everything that he needs to known when playing this game at this level and at the next level. He's done a fantastic job at playing the game the way it's meant to be played and I told him, take the matters into your own hands if you need to; there is no limit to what you can do.

"Johnno's a good listener and that's why [third-year quarterback] Steve [Merka] gave the ball to him on a consistent basis. Once he has the ball, he makes it a race. He runs like a fullback, catches passes like a tight end, and hits you real hard like a good linebacker should. He has the total package but is a humble person and is a realist by nature. We look forward to putting him to use next week."

The Angels of Mitakihara return to action next week when they host the Carson Graham Eagles on Aug. 27. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. PT and will be televised by Radio Madoka 2 and CMTS AM 900. John Eilands will have the play-by-play for you and color commentary will be done by former Angel, Waterloo Warrior and Hamilton Tiger-Cat WR Glenn McClellan.
