PLAYOFFS...? Yep... Time flys when your having fun ... Welcome to another edition of "Da Blitz"... I'm Jahmai Webster... And I'm Brandi Higa, we've got ALL three of the O-I-A's Red Playoff match-ups tonight plus some jostling for position in the White Division... Robert Kekaula has the night off.... Let's rock, THIS is "Da Blitz".... Start you off with a RED playoff match-up AT Moanalua between Na Menehune and Leilehua... ALL-TIME Mules lead this series 23-NOTHING. Yep, have NEVER lost to Moanalua, Ikaika Piceno making sure that doesn't happen tonight. Piceno taking the hand-off from Justin Jenks 21-yards to PAYDIRT... Mighty-Mules led 40-to-10 at the half... Piceno wasn't done. Jenks hits him in the back of the zone from 13-yards away. Piceno a MONSTER, he had THREE total touchdowns in the contest... 54-17 the final... Leilehua defense stalled Micah Kaneshiro, top passer in the state holding Na Menehune offense in check. Mules get WEST number-1 seed Mililani next week in the quarter-finals... Traveling to Kapolei now where East-5 seed Kailua headed northwest to play the West-5 seed Hurricanes. The two teams have only meet FOUR times in their history, BOTH coming off regular season losses. Tonight It's WIN, or go HOME.... Hurricanes looking to extend their season Surfriders had it TOUGH.... First quarter Keoni Taylor playing deep CENTERFIELD. .. He picks off Kailua quarterback Noah Auld and runs in back into Hurricane territory... Kapolei running game ALWAYS a strong point. Tristian Pebria THREE rushing touchdowns in the first quarter. Takes this one in from 25-yards away... And it's a HURRICANE out on the WESTSIDE.... Kapolei with the win... 42-27. They get east TOP-SEED Farrington next in the quarter- finals.... West number-6 seed Waipahu taking on East-3 McKinley AT Roosevelt .... Mathias Tuitele-Iafeta going LOOOONGG to Tyrell Tuiasasopo 48- yards for the touchdown. Tigers went up 6-0 after a missed extra point... No WORRIES ... They're scoring AGAIN. Tuitele- Iafeta to Daniel Kalahiki-Gasper ... Video game moves.... What a scoring hook-up.... Tigers roar to victory... 36-15 FINAL ... Waipahu PAU, McKinley moving on... They gets West TWO-SEED Campbell next week in the quarterfinals... Moving to I-L-H play, where the conference post-season tournament gets going NEXT Saturday. Punahou has already locked up the regular season crown and an I-L-H first round-bye. Business at hand tonight, defeating division-2 Pac- Five in our Da Blitz "Fan Game of the Week". Sorry folks, Robert won't be apart of this show he's losing money in Las Vegas... Wolfpack Q-B Anthony Canencia LOSING the pigskin... Yep, he's intercepted by Robert Straton who goes SIXTY-TWO yards to the house.... Puns lead 7-0... This one not really contested... Wayne Taulapapa.... 6-carries 122-yards TWO touchdowns including this one from 31-yards away... That folks is a RUN-A-WAY.... 59-7 the final.... Despite the loss, Wolfpacks post-season future is secure, they're the number-3 seed in next weeks I-L-H playoffs and they'll play 2-seed Damien. Monarchs up 99-0.... Wait... What...? Kidding me ... Scoreboard malfunction on homecoming night, might as well have stayed that way Kamehameha was ON FIRE .... Kainoa Simao, just enjoy this play right quick... Got no words for that BEAUTY... Simao goes HOUDINI, escapes to put the Warriors up 10-0... That was good for 57-yards... I'll show you that, and RAISE you this... Monarchs punt to the Warriors, and check Alika Kahaulelio... Just browsing... See's a crease... GOODBYE.... Kahaulelio 82-yards into PAYDIRT .... Monarchs SHUT-OUT and run all over on... 65-0 the final... Warriors now tuned up for their first-round I-L-H playoff match-up with St. Louis next saturday, winner gets top seed Punahou for a chance at the post-season title.... St. Francis forfeiting their scheduled tilt with St. Louis... Saints citing injuries to their roster of just 26-eligible players keeping them from competing. Head of Saint Francis School, Sister Joan of Arc Souza released this statement saying QUOTE ... "By the next scheduled game, against Iolani, we expect to have a sufficient number of our players off the injured list able to play."' End Quote... Kalani already playoff bound, CLINCHED the O-I-A Whites number-3 seed tonight with a 55-28 win over Waialua at their place... O-I-A WHITE Playoffs coming soon ... Radford has ALREADY clinched the number-2 seed hosting Pearl City tonight... Chargers need help, if they beat the Rams AND get an assist from Waialua in their game with Kalani on the North Shore, they'd earn the number-3 seed after already clinching playoff berth last week. All those scenarios making my head spin, let's see how it played out on the field... All that high-powered offense and this one really not a "barn-burner"... Cody Lui-Yuen, one of the TOP-PASSERS in division two, PICKED by Cody Crail. Crail just playing center- field ... Hey that's the second baseball reference tonight... Might as well be, it was a BASEBALL score in the fourth just 7-6 Pearl City.... Chargers on that next play after the I-N-T, Justin Dupio FUMBLED... 7-6 final, Chargers do their job, but with Waialua losing they'll be the number-4 seed... Over in Nanakuli... Golden Hawks were west-side coolin breezing past WINLESS Anuenue 54-to-7... Another forfeit dimming the "Friday Night Lights" .... Kalaheo giving up their game with Kaiser tonight because of the inablity to put out able bodies. Cougars go to 8-and-1 overall, undefeated in the White Division, they're the number-1 seed heading into the playoffs. No rest for the weary, I-L-H playoffs start NEXT weekend. TOMORROW.... Got the book-end to the O-I-A Red Playoffs, East-6 seed Castle AT West-3 seed Wai'anae at 6'o clock. Winner gets 2-seed Kahuku in the quarter-finals... That puts a bow on this week-9 and PLAYOFF edition of "Da Blitz" Brandi, Mahalo... No worries "Big Daddy
