Kaimuki in playoffs

When you're No. 2, you try harder.

Kamehameha, the second best football team in the Interscholastic League of Honolulu, showed why last night in a convincing 35-6 victory over Punahou in the feature game of a doubleheader at Aloha Stadium.

Despite their first-string running back being sidelined with an illness and his replacement going down after aggravating a nagging injury barely into the second quarter, the Warriors (7-1, 6-1) churned up major yardage on the ground against the Buffanblu (3-5, 3-4) before a rain-soaked crowd of 3,815.

State and ILH No. 1 St. Louis (9-0, 7-0) crushed Pac-Five (0-8, 0-7) in the opener, 59-21. At Iolani, the Raiders routed Damien, 46-6.

Despite their success moving the ball through the air this season, the Warriors began the game trying to establish the run and continued to do so throughout the contest.

Kiley Loo, starting in place of Kelena Ho'okano, gained 111 yards and scored once before being sidelined during the Warriors' first offensive series of the second quarter with an ankle injury.

Dane Montez picked up right where Loo left off by rushing for 153 yards and two scores of his own. Warriors quarterback Jon Fo did not attempt a pass until the second quarter, finishing 8 of 18 for 100 yards and one touchdown.

"We felt like we needed to establish the run in order (to win) so we went right at 'em," Warriors coach Kanani Souza said. "Give the offensive line a lot of credit as well because what they did was real critical, too."

The Warriors' defense was equally impressive. They held the Buffanblu to just one first down during the first half as Punahou stuck primarily with the run as well in the damp conditions.

Even after the rain let up during the second half and the Buffanblu finally began to move the ball successfully with the pass, the Warriors' defense bent but did not break. Buffanblu quarterback Todd LaFountaine scored on a 9-yard touchdown run after completing 7 of 8 passes on their first drive of the second half.

But Kamehameha shut out Punahou the rest of the way by causing turnovers and sacking LaFountaine repeatedly.

"It's disappointing that we didn't quite get it done," Buffanblu coach Kale Ane said.

"It's our goal to compete with St. Louis and Kamehameha and we still have a long way to go, but it's encouraging to see our guys fight all the way through the fourth quarter."

Kaimuki in
playoff picture

Star-Bulletin staff

Kaimuki clinched a playoff berth in the Oahu Interscholastic Association Red Division last night with a 6-0 victory over Aiea -- and two teams improved their chances for the postseason.

Kailua defeated Leilehua, 34-0, and Farrington knocked off Mililani, 27-0. Both teams are guaranteed a playoff spot with a win next week.

Despite the loss, Mililani is still alive in the playoff chase.

Waianae and Kahuku clinched Red Division playoff berths last week.

Castle filled one of the three White Division playoff berths with a 27-16 win at Pearl City.

McKinley and Campbell can secure the other two White spots with wins today.

FARRINGTON 27, MILILANI 0: The Governors capitalized on two Trojan fumbles in the third quarter to break open a scoreless game played on a very wet Mililani field.

Farrington scored twice in just over two minutes, following the two Mililani turnovers.
