(5:07) Saint Louis changes field with a 62-yard punt. Buffanblu on their 23. Crusaders jump early. Saint Louis has been a mess with the penalties. Muasau takes a big shot after a 7-yard run to the 39 moves the chains. Key drop sets up third-and-10. Falatea again with the big third-down catch, this one 11 yards to move the chains at midfield. Falatea with a drop on second-and-15. Would have been a first down. Muasau had time in the pocket. Punahou’s O-Line has done a pretty good job. Third-and-15 and Muasau is drilled and fumbles. Lawai’alani Brown with the recovery.

(6:12) Saint Louis ball on its 22. de Laura can’t handle the snap and it’s a loss of 6. A little jitters out there from both teams now perhaps? Saint Louis tries an inside screen but it’s incomplete.

(6:48) Punahou ball on the Saint Louis 38. Muasau on a keeper but holding on Punahou. The Saint Louis section with a round of applause. First-and-20. Muasau has a guy open by a step but a high throw and it’s PICKED. Kamo’i Latu with his second INT of the game to go along with a FR.

(8:04) Saint Louis ball on its 20. Incomplete pass and de Laura is down and he looks hurt. Squirming around in pain. Didn’t see it. Trainers looking at him now. It’s his left knee. Sophomore Connor Apo in for third-and-9 and a delay of game is called. Reply showed a Punahou end going low on de Laura. That didn’t look great. de Laura back in though because of the penalty. Check that, Apo takes the snap and it’s a run for 6 yards. Short punt and Punahou has excellent field position.

(12:00) Punahou starts on its 20. Muasau at QB. Eldredge with a 7-yard reception and another late hit by Saint Louis. Fourth-and-1 at the Saint Louis 49 and Muasau keeps for 2 yards and a first down. PI on Saint Louis moves it to the 32. Three straight incomplete passes brings up fourth down and Punahou goes for it. Falatea open for a 12-yard catch to move the chains. DL Stanley McKenzie with a sack of Muasau. Fourth-and-1 at the 11 and Muasau sprints out right. His pass is incomplete but roughing the passer is called on Sonny Masaniai who I think is in there for Botelho. Ball on the 5. Timeout Saint Louis. Muasau to Falatea for a 5-yard TD. 28-14, 8:04, Q3. Muasau 22-37, 213 yards, 2 TD. Falatea 8 receptions, 102 yards, 2 TD.

Punahou will receive.

    #1 vs #2 in the state.

    This is the REAL state championship game!

    Looking forward to a great game!


  2. 88 October 27, 2018 1:55 pm

    Real State Championship game? Let’s forget the fact that Punahou got their @$$es handed to them out on the North Shore. The Crusaders should AUTOMATICALLY be the ILH CHAMPIONS because they beat Punahou already.


  3. To da hale October 27, 2018 3:14 pm

    @88

    When you refer to getting your @$$es handed to them out in the north shore, are you also referring to the beat down that Mililani did on them in the north shore? How about losing to Campbell? #2 was earned and by not losing to ANY lower ranked team.

    Also, based on what you’ve stated, should Mililani AUTOMATICALLY be OIA champions since they beat every OIA team?

    StL is definitely #1 in the state and deserving of it. However, anything can happen, look at what Castle did to the undefeated Moanalua (Castle lost in the reg season).

    Let’s just see a good competitive game for all the fans to enjoy.


  4. "UNITY=STRENGTH" October 27, 2018 3:24 pm

    My best to the best ILH teams in the State playing for the ILH Championship. Play your game in the zone to the end!!! Use time outs wisely to stop any momentum and to regroup or the wheels might fall off!!! Work together to address the problems that might arise deal with it and move forward!!! Serious speed 100%!!! “ROCK ON”!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAGnKpE4NCI


  5. 88 October 27, 2018 5:43 pm

    I’m just referring to the @$$ pounding they got from Kahuku when BOTH teams were HEALTHY. As to an undefeated Mililani automatically crowned OIA champion, don’t be an idiot. For the past 1000 years the OIA has ALWAYS had a playoff (9-11being the exception) regardless of record to determine who the OIA champion is. The ILH does ROUNDS. They play 2 rounds cause there is only 3 of them. If a team sweeps the first round than happens to lose to a team in the 2nd round those 2 teams play a 3rd time. It seems unfair to the Crusaders that if they lose tonight their season is done.


  6. Charles Amai October 27, 2018 6:44 pm

    Awesome coverage! Thank you Coach Paul!!!


  7. BleedRed October 27, 2018 7:40 pm

    If the Crusaders come out victorious,does Botelho have to sit out next game


  8. Charles Amai October 27, 2018 7:54 pm

    1st half ejection should not go into the next game.


  9. BleedRed October 27, 2018 8:04 pm

    Mahalos for the clarification


  10. Austin Chang October 27, 2018 8:12 pm

    Did you Hugh Brady got injured?


  11. Austin Chang October 27, 2018 8:12 pm

    Excuse me Did Hugh Brady got injured?


  12. Charles Amai October 27, 2018 8:18 pm

    Botelho with a KO sack. RT missed assignment..Check YT for vid


  13. Im at the game October 27, 2018 8:20 pm

    Hugh Brady gone from first drive. Punahou keeps going low at the STL Qb. Both teams playing a little dirty but the refs are calling it on StL.


  14. Realist808 October 27, 2018 9:10 pm

    So now they play the runner up from the OIA tournament? How does the playoff format make sense? They’ll be the number 1 seed but they’ll play the 3 seed while the 2 seed plays the 4. Format needs to fixed.


  15. Wake up October 27, 2018 10:46 pm

    STL defense is the real deal this year. As for Puns getting @ss pounded on the North shore, the game was tied at the half. Kahuku pulled away only in the second half. Doesn’t really matter though because STL is gonna put a whoopin on whoever they face. Unless their starting QB goes down, I don’t see any team coming close. The game tonight could’ve been worse but the refs kept extending Punahoes drive with lame calls. Officiating was terrible and one sided tonight


  16. Dafun October 27, 2018 11:13 pm

    @wakeup

    Im going to have to agree not because I went to St. Louis, but damn man let the boys play. And be fair. I’ve never seen any set of refs destroy a game as much as this one. Seriously we need mainland refs or something because unfortunately we have the worst refs I have ever seen. St Louis won the game but was held back massively because of strange calls that never happened all season until punahou comes along…


  17. To da hale October 28, 2018 12:03 am

    Awesome game by StL!
    StL coaching did a good job.

    No OIA will stop StL.
    I believe Mililani will get beat even worst than how Punahou beat them.

    StL D is legit. Tonite, their backers played well. Didn’t hear the big 3 DL names called as much as they normally do. Is Tuitele injured? Didnt see any stats for tackles.


  18. Fan of California & Hawaii HS sports October 28, 2018 12:41 am

    To suggest that the refs tried to do all they could to help Punahou win, let me remind you of THIS: Punahou had a chance to tie the game in the 1st game before the refs missed an obvious PI that would’ve given the Puns a 1st down.


  19. Robocop October 28, 2018 1:06 am

    The 1st game didn’t mean much this one was big. Loser is done. The refs really were bad


  20. 3-Peat! October 28, 2018 4:00 am

    Crusaders left no doubt, period! A league of there own and Koa stays at Kalaepohaku.


  21. Penalties October 28, 2018 7:20 am

    If the refs wanted to help Punahou, then they should have called all that holding that the crusader OL was doing all night long. I think maybe just 1 holding penalty was called on them for the entire game.


  22. Lou October 28, 2018 8:55 am

    Goshima was like ref? Wow, alum ?


  23. Robocop October 28, 2018 9:06 am

    Everyone always cries about ST Louis holding but no one brings up how bad they get held every game.


  24. Wake up October 28, 2018 9:24 am

    The first game the refs spotted Puns a touchdown that should’ve been a safety. Did anyone else besides me see this bogus call? And to be fair, you can call holding on EVERY play if you really wanted to


  25. hiusername October 28, 2018 9:24 am

    punahou double teamed tuitele with the tackle and guard, and that left bothelo free. punahou did not consider double teaming bothelo. but, if they did, tuitele and the other two dl would be sacking the qb.
    the awesome 7.


  26. ABC 123 October 28, 2018 10:39 am

    Saint Louis is on a different level than all other in state teams. When the O is struggling the D steps up and vice versa. Even though Kahuku typically ups their game during states, this year doesn’t seem to have the same feel as the past years. That leaves Mililani which if HHSAA was smart, they would seed it to where a Saint Louis vs. Mililani would meet for the Title. But that won’t happen. Saint Louis will have to go thru the top two OIA teams again to earn their 3-peat.
