It was the usual smashing from Dan Harding's Leafa College Spirit Gridiron, who throttled the San Diego State Aztecs 136-23 at Yunupingu Field in Canberra, ACT. Quarterback Cooper Kanie passed for 280 yards, ran for 581 yards and scored nine total touchdowns on offence. Defencively, right outside linebacker David Hazuki recorded 12 tackles and a sack to lead the way.

Halfback Ethan Wakamatsu ran for 201 yards and two touchdowns, halfback Jackson Tatara ran for 163 yards and four more scores, wide receiver Xavier Kim had 119 total offencive yards and three offencive touchdowns, wideout Mitch Kihara had 18 pancakes to lead all blockers and wideout Dayne Tsunashi had 14 pancakes.

Middle linebacker Roy Hanamura had 16 tackles to lead all tackles, while Leo Tatsumi added 11 tackles and two sacks. Defensive tackle Levi Iori had three sacks, while three different players on defense, all cornerbacks, had an interception apiece. Defensive end Sam Touzokuyama also had two sacks.

Leafa improve to 11-0 and will host Fresno State next week in Spirit Senior Day 2074, saluting halfback Ethan Wakamatsu and the four senior quarterbacks on the Leafa Spirit gridiron team.
