Trojans top Surfriders
Mililani, using I slot and trips formations, tied the game with an 11-play, 49-yard drive. Perbera picked up 9 yards on a key fourth-and-3 play deep in Kailua territory. Mililani stuck with its short-yardage, wishbone set, and Kahoano found Torres open for a 3-yard scoring toss.
Kahoano eluded three would-be sackers and found Perbera in the back of the end zone on the 2-point PAT. The game was tied at 14 with 9:17 remaining in the first half.
The Surfriders took advantage of a sleepy Mililani secondary on the next possession. Kohatsu drilled a short pass to Aaron Sylva, and with one defender missing on an interception attempt and another completely missing a tackle, Sylva raced downfield for a 63-yard touchdown play. Kailua led 21-14 with 3:17 to go in the half.
Mililani answered with a 10-play, 78-yard drive. Kahoano found Nick Rogers open for a big 23-yard pass play, and a pass interference call against Kailua on another pass attempt to Rogers gave Mililani a first down at the Surfriders' 13-yard line.
With no timeouts and the clock winding down, Kahoano scrambled for a 9-yard touchdown run. Jordan Torres' PAT kick tied the game at 21 with 8 seconds left before intermission. A replay showed that Kahoano got the benefit of a good spot.
"When I got tackled, I was scared I didn't make it," he said.
Mililani's swarming defense, anchored by Michael Suan, stuck to its responsibilities and found success in the second half. Perbera scored on a 2-yard run, and Jordan Apduhan breezed in from 6 yards out as the Trojans took a 35-21 lead into the final quarter.
"Even with when we took the lead, they still ran. That's been their game, and they've beaten us like that before," Millwood said.
Kahoano connected with Rogers for an 11-yard touchdown pass with 7:44 remaining.
