After 36 straight games, the St. Louis Crusaders have now fallen to a Hawaii foe.
On Friday night, the Kamehameha Warriors upset the state's #1 team 23-21 in a thrilling contest that came down to the final minute of play.
Kamehameha running back Noah Bartley led the way with 127 yards and a touchdown that proved to be the difference down the stretch. Kealii Ah Yat and Blaze Kamoku connected on a 3-yard pass that gave KSK an early lead.
St. Louis QB A.J. Bianco led a valiant comeback effort, racking up 344 yards and two touchdowns through the air, however his two interceptions proved costly. Trech Kekahuna and Devon Tauefa both caught touchdowns, but it was Kamehameha Dylan Palama's fourth-down sack with seconds left on the clock that sealed the win for the Warriors.
Now, for the first time in almost a decade, the Warriors, Crusaders and Punahou Buffanblu all have beaten each other this season.
The Warriors will now play Punahou next Friday at Aloha Stadium as the Crusaders will wait two weeks before their rematch with the Buffanblu.
