Chargers struggle to move ball in loss on Maui

The one Oahu team to make a trip to the outer islands on opening weekend had a tough time at War Memorial Stadium.

Division II Pearl City, which is now 3-8 since that excruciating overtime loss to Nanakuli in the 2014 OIA D-II title game, was shut out 29-0 by Lahainaluna on Saturday night.

The Chargers were held to 54 total yards and only seven first downs by the MIL Lunas, which racked up 370 total yards of its own.

Pearl City returned starting quarterback Kekainalu Simon, who completed just three of his 19 pass attempts for 42 yards and an interception. Pearl City carried the ball 33 times for only 12 total yards with running back Charles Freitas gaining 43 yards on 24 carries.

Lahainaluna quarterback Enele Scanlan threw two touchdown passes in his five completions that went for a total of 125 yards. Both of Siale Hafoka‘s catches (26 and 8 yards) were for touchdowns.
