Waianae's up-and-down regular season ended on a high note as the Seariders rallied late to stop Campbell 25-24 in an evenly played football game last night.

The host Seariders (5-2) clinched the Oahu Interscholastic Association West Red Conference's top seed for the playoffs, which start next week. The Sabers (5-2), who haven't played a home game this year due to problems with their field, are the conference's second seed.

"It's hard to believe, with the season we had, that we're the top team in the West Red," Waianae coach Daniel Matsumoto said. "It doesn't feel like we're the champions because we have so much to do, so much to work on. Just about every opponent has played their best game against us."

The smash-mouth style of both teams gave way to finesse in the final two drives.

With Waianae leading 19-17, Campbell appeared to have the game won when it drove 80 yards for a touchdown with 3:50 left. Quarterback Jonah Canionero's 34-yard run set up his 28-yard TD toss to Prentiss Anderson for a 24-19 lead. Anderson sped down the left sideline and came back for Canionero's pass at the 10 before beating several lunging Seariders into the end zone.

"It always hurts to lose," said Campbell coach Tumoana Kenessey. "But the way we fought back showed our character. We played hard and we'll have to regroup. It's playoff time and everybody's 0-0."

Chad Rodrigues was the main man for Waianae in the winning drive, returning Campbell's kickoff 22 yards and scoring the go-ahead points when he broke across the middle, grabbed an Addison Popa pass and raced 43 yards into the end zone. Two Sabers defenders -- Travis Whitley-Alcos and Alii Basham -- collided in Rodrigues' path and the Waianae runner kept on chugging. The Seariders just missed the 2-point conversion when Whitley-Alcos batted down Popa's pass intended for Nathan Yadao.

"We knew it was going to be a close game," said Matsumoto. "We're lucky to come out with this win. They were keying on (running back) Sautia Lave, so we knew we had to open it up (and go to the passing game on the final drive). We also said a lot of prayers."

Lave, who Matsumoto called a "true-blue runner," finished with 52 move-the-pile yards on 12 carries. Waianae contained the Sabers' heralded runner, Mapa Malupo, who ended up with 19 yards on 11 carries.

The final offensive yardage totals were fairly even, with Waianae outgaining Campbell 275-273.

The Sabers drove from their own 32 to the Seariders' 48 on their final possession, but Canionero threw four straight incomplete passes to turn the ball over on downs and Popa took a knee to end it.

Rodrigues scored twice in the first half -- on a 3-yard run and a 10-yard pass from Popa -- as Waianae took a 13-10 halftime advantage. Campbell countered with Shauncey-Blaine Saito's 23-yard field goal and Canionero's 12-yard TD pass to Basham.

The Sabers struck first in the second half. After Isaac Laupola's fumble recovery on a Seariders' punt return, Canionero hit a leaping Basham for another 12-yard score and a 17-13 lead.

After a shanked Campbell punt, the Seariders went ahead 19-17 on the last play of the third quarter on Lave's 1-yard TD push. But Waianae failed to add to its lead when Kalani Hoopii's 40-yard field-goal attempt missed wide right.

"It was a great game between two great ballclubs," Campbell's Kenessey said. "We went head-to-head and we both prefer to run, but ended up starting to pass."
