Dan Harding's Leafa Spirit Gridiron completed a long five-week road trip in the States with a rousing 161-38 rout of the Wyoming Cowboys at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie, Wyo. The second string was used for this contest, given the sheer discrepancy in class and form. Quarterback and captain Lachlan Akai passed for 447 yards and also ran for 454 yards, scored 12 total touchdowns on offence. Middle linebacker Dane Nanase, a converted cornerback, led the defense with 10 tackles and an interception.

Halfback Hunter Aoshima ran for 219 yards and five touchdowns, halfback Jackson Tatara ran for 133 yards and four major scores, wide receiver Connor Yasaka caught six passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns, wideout Oliver Isaki caught three passes for 109 yards and a major, and Yasaka also led the team in blocking with 27 pancakes. Isaki had 20 pancakes as well.

Defencively, strong safety Lee Bokmal led the team in tackles with 11, while four other players on defense also had an interception. Blake Tsunetsugu, a converted linebacker moved to the defensive line as an end, led the team in sacks with two. Six different players were in double figures in terms of blocks.

Leafa improve to 3-0 and return home next week in Homecoming 2074.
