On Thursday, top-ranked Punahou improved to 8-0 overall and 5-0 in the ILH after its 26-23 win over Kamehameha at the Aloha Stadium. It was the second game between the teams this season.
Standout player of the night was senior quarterback Ephraim Tuliloa who threw for a career-high 446 yards and four touchdowns, completing 40 of 51 passes, which helped the Buffanblu take down the Warriors.
Tuliloa has missed the last three games due to a shoulder injury he suffered in the first half against Iolani back in September, but tonight, he helped Punahou rally from a 16-point second quarter deficit to remain undefeated.
Kamehameha fell to 4-4 overall and 1-4 in league play, having lost four of their last five games. The team will conclude the regular season at Iolani next Friday.
No. 1 Punahou will face No. 2 Saint Louis at Aloha Stadium on Oct. 17.
All season long, Damien has remained undefeated in the ILH, chasing their first league D-2 crown since 2003, but tonight's match against Saint Francis has put that dream to rest – The Saints handed the Monarchs their first loss of the season. Final score: 21-6.
It was a different turnout for the Radford Rams who have also remained undefeated this season in the OIA. Whether it's here at home, or like it was "on the road" in Tacoma, Washington... This year has been a great season for them.
Last week, OIA's regular season D-2 title was on the line when Nanakuli hosted Radford. The Rams crushed the Golden Hawks with their 28-7 win.
Tonight, Rams versus Bulldogs did nothing to change that. Radford stampeded Waialua with their 35-0 win and continue to stay undefeated.
In Kailua, the Surfriders get past the Marauders and advance to face Waianae in next week's OIA quarterfinals. Final score: 57-6.
On the west side, Kapolei scored its fifth consecutive win of the season in its game against Castle, 41-0. Hurricanes started off strong in the first quarter earning 20 points. No points in the second quarter, but in the third, 21 more points.
Hurricanes will face No. 4 Kahuku in quarterfinal round next weekend.
And meanwhile on the Big Island, two games took place both on the Kona side: Kealakehe whipped Waiakea, 43-16 and Konawaena stomped Honaka'a, 50-6.
Last game at Aloha Stadium: Iolani vs. Saint Louis.
After 11 straight league D-2 titles, and state championships 8 of the last 10 seasons, Raiders were bumped up to D-1 status this season, but it's been a rough time for the team with no wins so far in the ILH.
Iolani scored first tonight, but they couldn't hold down the No. 2 Crusaders. Final score: 7-31.
