No. 3 Farrington 27, No. 10 Kapolei 6

Farrington’s Harry Tuimaseve rumbled for 171 yards on 27 carries and all three touchdowns by the Governors’ offense, while linebacker Charles Tauaefa returned a pick for another score.

Farrington’s offensive line didn’t miss a beat when right guard Jarome Faamata left after aggravating a leg injury. Laimana Kapuwai stepped in and the ground-and-pound attack resumed with the OIA Red East’s top rusher, Tuimaseve.


Farrington (8-1 overall), ranked No. 3 in the Star-Bulletin Top 10, will face Leilehua this weekend in the semifinal round of the OIA Red Conference playoffs. Kapolei closed its season at 5-4.

Ryan Ho ran for 102 yards and three touchdowns as the Warriors stayed on top of the ILH standings with a win over the Firebrands.


Kamehameha improved to 5-1 in the ILH, a step ahead of 5-2 Punahou. The Warriors and Buffanblu will meet again on Nov. 5.

Poggi Awa led Word of Life with 84 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.
