Quarterback Shae Katou-Aki passed for 290 yards, ran for 272 yards and scored six touchdowns on offence as Dan Harding's Leafa Spirit Gridiron defeated the Georgia Bulldogs, 87-40 at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Georgia, USA. Middle linebacker Rhys Miyazawa added 21 tackles and an interception to lead the defence.

Halfback Brett Inohara ran for 134 yards and two touchdowns, first-year halfback Ace Kurogane had 118 yards and two majors, wide receiver Jiji Petricca had eight catches for 81 yards and a score, and wideout Jarryd Kaizuka led the blockers with 31 pancakes.

Three other players on defence besides Miyazawa had an interception apiece, including strong safety Joe Takajou, who added 13 tackles to his credit. Cornerback Vern Dahlgren had 14 tackles, while left end Steele Craftman had two sacks to lead a relatively quiet pass rush.

Leafa improve to 1-0 and continue their road trip next week against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana, USA.
