Wolverines in Japan 2017 Regular Season Game 5

Submitted by Carcajou on October 23rd, 2017 at 4:52 AM

Devin Gardner threw for three touchdowns and ran for another as the Nojima Sagamihara Rise outgunned the  As One Black Eagles from the Battle 9 division, 49-6. The game was played at Osaka’s Expo Flash Field in rainy conditions, due to Typhoon Lan as it reached Japan over the weekend.

The Rise led 21-0 at halftime, and Gardner (8-15-3-1) was relieved of quarterbacking duties midway through the 3rd quarter after throwing his third TD pass of the game with Nojima safely ahead 35-6.

The Rise (4-1) will next face league- leading Panasonic Impulse (5-0) in their final game of the regular season on October 29th at Yokohama Stadium.
