NOTES: Mililani has had a receiver go over 100 yards against Farrington in each of the last four meetings. Mililani is 6-1 vs. Farrington when its QB throws for more than 170 yards. Mililani is 4-1-1 when it has a running back gain more than 100 yards against Farrington. Mililani is looking to start 5-0 for the first time since its undefeated 2014 campaign. Farrington is 0-2 when it has a single running back go over 200 yards against Mililani. Rod York has never allowed a Farrington receiver over 100 yards. Randall Okimoto has beaten York only once, way back in 2011, and York leads the series 7-1. Farrington hasn’t had a four-game winning streak since it began the 2015 season 5-0. The Govs have allowed seven points in their last three games, their best three-game stretch since 1991 when they pitched four shutouts in a row. That was Okimoto’s sophomore year. Counting a season-opening forfeit by Kaiser, Mililani has shut out three OIA foes in a row, the first time in program history. The last OIA team to score on the Trojans was Leilehua in last year’s state tournament. Farrington running back Bobby Alualu-Alo is the only running back in D-I with more than 178 rushing yards but no touchdowns. York will coach his 90th game on Friday, he is 70-19 to start his career. Cal Lee was 70-20 in his first 90 games. Don’t get too excited, though, if Lee retired tomorrow York would have to win 10 games a year for 20 years to catch the state leader’s 266 career wins.
