Warrior Replay


POSTED: Monday, October 19, 2009

1. First of Four

The Situation:
Hawaii 0, Idaho 0, 12:09 remaining, first quarter, Idaho ball, first and 10 at Hawaii 28

The Play:
RB DeMaundray Woolridge runs 28 yards for a touchdown, capping a steady opening drive for Idaho.

The Impact:
It is the first of four touchdowns for Woolridge. Idaho piles up 194 rushing yards.

“;I thank my line; they pushed hard. To get into the end zone four times is almost like a dream.”;


2. Terrible Break

The Situation:
Idaho 14, Hawaii 10, around 12:00 remaining, second quarter, Hawaii ball, third and 13 at Hawaii 41

The Play:
QB Bryant Moniz completes a pass for 16 yards to WR Rodney Bradley. Bradley is hit low by S Shiloh Keo. Bradley suffers a broken leg on the play.

The Impact:
UH gets a first down, but Bradley, Hawaii's second-leading receiver, is taken from the field in an ambulance. He remained in Idaho to undergo surgery yesterday and is out for the season.

Hawaii coach Greg McMackin:
“;I love the kid. ... He's one of our best players and he's a great kid. Shoot, it's terrible. It's devastating.”;


3. Failed Fake

The Situation:
Idaho 14, Hawaii 10, 4:15 remaining, second quarter, Hawaii ball, fourth and goal at Idaho 9

The Play:
Hawaii sets up in field-goal formation. Holder Inoke Funaki passes to Leon Wright-Jackson, who gets to the 2 before he's knocked out of bounds.

The Impact:
Hawaii goes 76 yards in 18 plays, but scores zero points. This follows a first-quarter drive of 11 plays and 64 yards that results in a field goal.

“;Same thing, different day. We came a long way from last week. We did improve, but that's not good enough. We have to put seven on the board, not three.”;


4. Back in it

The Situation:
Idaho 21, Hawaii 10, 15:00 remaining, fourth quarter, Hawaii ball, third and 1 at Idaho 28

The Play:
Moniz passes to SB Jon Medeiros for 13 yards and a first down at the Idaho 15.

The Impact:
Hawaii punches it in on the next play on a 15-yard run by Moniz to close to within four points. But Idaho comes right back on the next drive with another touchdown.

UH QB coach Nick Rolovich:
“;I thought (Moniz) played courageously. He's everything we need on offense as a leader, accurate, smart. He's composed. He's got a leadership quality where the team will follow him.


5. Dagger

The Situation:
Idaho 28, Hawaii 17, 3:40 remaining, fourth quarter, Idaho ball, third and 25 at Idaho 44

The Play:
QB Nathan Enderle passes complete to WR Max Komar for 36 yards and a first down at the Hawaii 20.

The Impact:
A fresh set of downs for Idaho with time running down against a weary defense takes away most of Hawaii's remaining hope. Woolridge scores his fourth rushing touchdown of the game four plays later.

Idaho coach Robb Akey:
“;Being 6-1 means a whole lot. It means this team has done a lot of things a lot of people told them they couldn't do.”;
