The Farrington rushing attack proved to be too much for McKinley as the Governors outlasted the Tigers 26-7 at Roosevelt High School Saturday night.

The Governor rushing corps was led by senior running back Tyler Taumua, who gained 118 yards with one touchdown.  Senior running back Abraham Silva got 61 yards against the Tigers.

McKinley got a total of 19 rushing yards in the game versus Farrington's 209 rushing yards.

However, McKinley did get 120 yards in the air versus Farrington's 118 passing yards.

The Tigers struck first with an 84-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Denzel Kalahiki-Gasper to junior wide receiver Tyrell Tuiasosopo.  But that was all McKinley would score.

The Governors would score on two rushing touchdowns, a passing touchdown and an interception return for a touchdown.

Farrington's defense kept Kalahiki-Gasper at bay with four interceptions on the night.

The Governors (4-0) will have a bye week and get ready for a Sept. 29 showdown against division rival Kahuku (3-0).  McKinley (1-2) will travel to Moanalua (3-1) on Sept. 22.
