The San Diego State Spartans were the first team all season to limit Dan Harding's Leafa Spirit Gridiron to under 100 points for the season. However, the Spirit prevailed nonetheless, 89-17, at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, Calif. Halfback Ethan Wakamatsu ran for 256 yards and four touchdowns while catching another pass for a score. Left outside linebacker Nick Mikisugi had nine tackles and four sacks to lead the Spirit defense.

Quarterback Cooper Kanie passed for 254 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 208 yards and two majors, halfback Jackson Tatara ran for 155 yards and a touchdown, and wide receiver Connor Yasaka had seven receptions and a major while leading in blocking as well as receiving with 20 pancakes.

Middle linebacker Roy Hanamura had 21 tackles, four for a loss and an interception. Right end Darren Kurokiba and left end Gary Acura each had two sacks. Three other players on defense also had a sack, while cornerback Daniel Tachibana also recorded an interception.

Leafa improve to 11-0 and continue their road trip with the regular season final next week against Fresno State.
