Buffs no problem for Warriors

PREP SCOREBOARD

Kelena Hookano brought the thunder and Tyler Perkins provided the lightning as Kamehameha overpowered Punahou 26-7 last night at Aloha Stadium.

The game was the Warriors' first in Interscholastic League of Honolulu Division I competition. Punahou fell to 0-2 in the division.

Hookano, a senior running back, powered through the Punahou defense for 119 yards and three touchdowns, while Perkins sparked the Warriors on special teams.

Perkins returned the opening kickoff of the second half 90 yards to break a 7-7 halftime tie. He later set up two of Hookano's touchdowns by partially blocking two Buffanblu punts.

"There was one play we needed real bad and Tyler responded," Kamehameha coach Kanani Souza said of Perkins' game-turning touchdown. "We put a nice wedge on and he was able to get it in."

Hookano carried the ball 14 times in each half and averaged 4.4 yards per run.

"We felt we needed to do what we do best, and that's handing the ball off to Kelena and getting a hat on a hat," Souza said.

Once Kamehameha gained the lead, the Warrior defense smothered Punahou in the second half. The Buffanblu offense netted only 11 yards after halftime.

Kamehameha's defensive front corralled Punahou quarterback Todd LaFountaine, dropping him repeatedly for losses. LaFountaine carried the ball 15 times in the second half for a net of minus-7 yards.

"Playing as one in unison, that's what made us win," said Kamehameha defensive lineman Brandon Ala. "Stopping the run and making them pass is what our defense loves to do."

Said Punahou coach Kale Ane: "Our main problem was their front four. They're very strong and they were able to control the line of scrimmage."

The teams traded field position for much of a speedy first half, which took less than an hour to play.

he runs against Punahou. Hookano ran for 119
yards on 27 carries.



A special-teams miscue on Punahou's first possession set up the game's opening score. Punahou punter Stan Fisher couldn't handle a high snap and was tackled at the Buffanblu 2. Hookano scored on the next play.

Punahou responded on its next possession with a 12-play, 74-yard march capped by a 1-yard run by Tamatoa Hackney. LaFountaine went 5-for-5 for 67 yards during the drive.

Kamehameha squandered an opportunity to score at the end of the half. The Warriors had driven to the Buffanblu 11 when a lateral by quarterback Caleb Spencer was recovered by Punahou's Kawika Fiddler.

Perkins gave Kamehameha the lead for good with his electrifying return. He took the ball at his own 10, burst through a hole in the coverage and sprinted untouched into the end zone.

Hookano scored his second touchdown of the game with 5:01 left in the third quarter on a 5-yard run. He picked up all of Kamehameha's 38 yards on the drive, which was set up when Perkins got a piece of Fisher's punt.

Another Perkins block set up an 8-yard touchdown run by Hookano to put away the game.

The Warriors will next face nationally ranked St. Louis on Friday at Aloha Stadium. Punahou has a bye.

Pac-Five 42, Damien 6: The Wolfpack earned their first Interscholastic League of Honolulu win since 1999 with their rout of the Monarchs.

Pac-Five quarterback McShane Dator, playing his first game of the year, passed for 207 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Wolfpack running back Michael Yamauchi-Yamate rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown for the Wolfpack, and receiver Matthew Friedman finished with eight receptions for 159 yards.

Pac-Five, whose last win came on Oct. 16, 1999 against Damien, opened the scoring on Dator's 15-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Leong. On Damien's next possession, Kimo Lee blocked a punt by Gaison Ganiko in the end zone. The ball was recovered by Pac-Five's Alika Durington for a touchdown.

The Wolfpack extended the lead to 21-0 on Yamauchi-Yamate's 4-yard scoring run.

Damien scored its lone touchdown on a 6-yard pass from Ranson DeCosta to Michael Lau. But Pac-Five responded immediately when Dator hit Matthew Friedman on a 79-yard bomb late in the second quarter.

Ryan Urabe and Shane Lawrence added touchdown runs in the second half for the Wolfpack.

The Monarch attack was hampered by five turnovers (three fumbles lost and two interceptions).

OIARED

Waianae 17, Farrington 7: In a game influenced by penalties and the weather, the defending OIA Red champion Seariders rushed for two touchdowns in the final quarter to beat the host Governors.

Farrington, missing quarterback Gilbert Sa due to injury, managed just 137 total yards.

The teams combined for 20 penalties. The effect of a light drizzle was felt as 26 of 39 pass attempts fell incomplete.

Waianae running back Kawena Rosario rushed 17 times for 71 yards, an average of more than four yards a carry.

Next week, Farrington will go for its first victory against Campbell. Waianae takes on Kaimuki, which is coming off its first win over Leilehua.

MIL

Baldwin 39, Maui 23: At Wailuku, Maui, AJ Garbin set the tone for the Bears early, returning the opening kickoff 83 yards for his first of four touchdowns against the Sabers at War Memorial Stadium.

Garbin answered back-to-back Andrew Malafu scoring runs, which had put Maui ahead, with another kickoff return, going 78 yards for his second TD.

Gered Mochizuki sealed the Bears' win with an interception return of 102 yards with less than 20 seconds left in the game and the Sabers in scoring position.

Friday's games

OIA Red

Kailua 34, Mililani 28: An on and off rain at the Mililani field contributed to nine fumbles but failed to stop both offenses from combining for 62 points.

Kailua scored first as receiver David Kahenui caught a 28-yard touchdown, en route to 157 total receiving yards.

The Trojans responded with three consecutive scores to take a 14-point lead. After trading touchdowns, the Surfriders closed the game with 20 points, then ran out the clock.

Kailua's Taleki Mailau accounted for four touchdowns and a two-point conversion while counterpart Mana Au of Mililani passed for three touchdowns in the loss.

Kailua running back Nathan Leaver, who entered the contest averaging over eleven yards a carry, was held to 17 yards.

Kailua remains undefeated and hosts undefeated Kahuku in a crucial RedConference matchup next week. Mililani will take on McKinley.

Kaimuki 33, Leilehua 22: Chanceton Mirafuentes and Soloni Taumalolo combined for 179 rushing yards and Mirafuentes ran for two scores and passed for another as the Bulldogs rolled.

Mirafuentes broke a 14-14 tie with a 5-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He scored again in the third and capped off his strong game with a 13-yard touchdown toss to David Bellin later in the quarter.

Spencer Omalza threw three scoring passes for Leilehua, including a pair to Juwann Jackson.

The Bulldogs limited the Mules to 35 yards on the ground.

OIAWHITE

Aiea 46, Kalaheo 27: Lole Laolagi threw for 345 yards and six touchdown passes to four different receivers to lead Na Alii to its fifth straight win.

Laolagi put Aiea up 14-0 in the first quarter with his first two touchdown tosses and extended the lead to 26-7 with his next two before the teams began trading touchdowns and Laolagi left the game because of injury.

Dustin Grace came on in relief of Laolagi and threw a scoring strike of his own, a 39-yarder to Faasalele Neemia Jr. to close out the scoring.

Aiea became the only 5-0 team in the state while pushing Kalaheo to 2-2.

Moanalua 28, Waialua 16: Ric Fukushima threw for 241 yards and connected with James Strombach for two touchdowns as the Menehunes overcame a 10-7 first-half deficit.

Daniel Nacario passed for 309 yards, including an 84-yard pass play to Sione Fotu.

The Menehunes scored 21 straight points in the second and third quarters to put the game away. Demetrious Hawkins pounded out 113 yards on the ground for Moanalua.

On defense, James Westbrook spent a good part of the game in the Waialua backfield, and recorded three sacks.

KIF

Kauai 13, Kapaa 7: Jameson Smith ran for 80 yards on 13 carries and a second quarter touchdown to lead the Red Raiders.

Kauai's defense allowed 121 yards rushing but only 29 yards passing in shutting out Kapaa for three quarters.

Alika Rosa put Kauai two scores ahead with a 3-yard touchdown run in the final quarter.

Kapaa pulled within six points on a 6-yard pass from Dustin Mundon to Randy Lawrence.
