Halfback Brett Inohara ran for 173 yards and three scores, halfback Ace Kurogane ran for 111 yards and two majors, tight end Anthony Kagurazaka caught three passes for 73 yards and a touchdown, and wide receiver Touma Yukihira led the offence in blocking with 10 pancake blocks. Ben Ayugase led all tacklers with 13 tackles and three sacks while Rhys Miyazawa added 12 tackles. Cornerback Adam Sakurada had two picks while Gilles Troyard and Steele Craftman had two sacks each.
