P.J. Minaya fired seven touchdown passes as Pac-Five overwhelmed an undermanned Kaimuki squad 48-19 last night in the opening game of the Father Bray Classic at Aloha Stadium.

Minaya was 26-for-42 for 374 yards and had scoring tosses of 5, 33, 7, 27, 5 and 15 yards in the first half alone. He added a 35-yard strike to Darin Kamealoha for his seventh touchdown. Kamealoha led all receivers with eight catches for 146 yards and four scores.

Kaimuki, down to 20 players after academic probation, brought up five junior varsity players for the nonconference opener.


“We knew they didn’t have all their guys,” Minaya said.

Chester Su‘a’s 5-yard run brought the Bulldogs within 13-6 midway through the first quarter, but the Wolfpack dominated with their aerial attack from that point.

Eddie Char was one of the bright spots for Kaimuki, which played several starters both ways. Char passed for 173 yards without a pick and rushed for 55 yards on nifty option keepers. The Bulldogs finished with 137 rushing yards.

“We did a good job with our second team. Some of them, this was their first time (playing varsity),” Char said. “Coach said, ‘Just do your job and do your assignments, and play your heart out.’”

First-year coach Clint Onigama praised his young team.

“For us, we’re telling our boys, ‘No excuses,’ but a lot of our guys grew up tonight,” Onigama said.

Su‘a was a force defensively with two sacks.

The Bulldogs played without two-way starter Desmond Tautofi, who has been suspended since an incident during Kaimuki’s scrimmage with Waianae last week, Onigama said.

That fracas, which occurred on the final play of the scrimmage, plus academic issues, almost caused Kaimuki to pull out of the Bray game.
