Bell, Machado key
Farrington’s second-half blitz

St. Louis wins Tengan's debut

By Jason Kaneshiro

Randall Okimoto first earned the admiration of Farrington football fans as a standout running back in the early 1990s. Last night he watched another Governor back help him make a triumphant debut as the team's new coach.

Matt Bell rushed for 136 yards and a touchdown and quarterback Royce Machado caught fire in the second half to lead the Governors to a 28-7 win over Pac-Five in the middle game of the Father Bray Classic at Aloha Stadium.

"We've been preparing for this since February, so I was expecting a decent game," said Okimoto after winning in his first game as Farrington's varsity coach.

"I think this is going to be a good boost for them. Our coaching staff puts in a lot of time with these guys, and they've been doing a helluva job. I'm just overseeing it."

The Governors used a balanced attack to rack up 327 yards in total offense against the Wolfpack. Bell carried the load in the first half, rushing for 86 yards. Machado passed for just 23 yards before halftime, but finished with 177. He hooked up with receiver Dionte Nomaaea eight times for 154 yards in the second half.

Iolani's Raynold Stowers scored the team's second TD as the Raiders routed Radford 48-20.

"(Machado) is a spunkly little guy," Pac-Five coach Don Botelho said. "He took a beating and he kept coming back."

Pac-Five quarterback McShane Dator tried to match Machado, completing 19 of 32 passes for 165 yards and a touchdown. But the Wolfpack offense was hampered by three lost fumbles and four sacks.

"The second half Farrington started to get the momentum," Botelho said. "Our defense was just out there too long and we got tired."

After trading punts and fumbles for much of the first half, Pac-Five broke on top in the second quarter on Dator's 19-yard scoring pass to Travis Tyler. Dator completed 7 of 11 passes for 88 yards in the drive to lead the Wolfpack 95 yards in 12 plays.

Farrington answered on its next possession with Machado finding Alvin Faumui in the end zone for a 15-yard touchdown pass. The PAT was wide and Pac-Five took a 7-6 lead into halftime.

The Governors claimed the lead with 1:50 left in the third quarter after Jerome Crisostomo's punt return gave Farrington the ball at the Pac-Five 28. Bell accounted for all of the Governors' offense on the drive, finishing it with a 3-yard touchdown run.

The Governors then took to the air as Machado hit Nomaaea for a 26-yard score early in the fourth quarter. The combo connected on a 50-yard completion later in the period to set up Samson Milo's 2-yard plunge to close the scoring.

"(Offensive coordinator) Elroy Chong mixed it up really well," Okimoto said. "In the second half we came out with a little more intensity and that made the difference."

Junior varsity -- Kaimuki 32, Aiea 6


The Roosevelt quarterback tandem of La'akea Moikeha and Bryson Borges threw touchdown passes to help the Rough Riders upend the Pearl City Chargers 14-0 in an Oahu Interscholastic Association preseason game Friday night at Pearl City field.

The game featured more penalties (17) than points. The Rough Riders relied on their stingy run defense and took advantage of Charger miscues to ride away with the shutout.

"We capitalized on the discipline part, they were jumping offsides like crazy," Roosevelt coach Les Parrilla said.

After a scoreless opening quarter, Moikeha, a sophomore, hooked up with senior wideout Cameron Kimura on a 47-yard touchdown with 9:31 left in the second quarter to give the Rough Riders a 7-0 advantage.

"There were so many negatives, but on the positive side the kids played together," said Parrilla, who was without 10 players due to academic probation.

The loss spoiled the debut of Chargers coach Onosai Tanuvasa.
