Third-and-11 after a high throw from Sagapolutele down the middle. Sagapolutele has to throw early as Evaimalo just whipped the right tackle and got a clean shot on the QB. Incomplete and punt. Evaimalo is a monster off the end right now for Kamehameha.

(5:52) Punahou ball on its 1. Freshman John-Keawe Sagapolutele in at QB. Third-and-1 after a 6-yard run by Vincent Terrell. Punahou elects to run and it’s complete to Christopher Paige who makes a man miss but just hits the sideline or would have had room to run. A 9-yard reception picks up a first down.

That’s a TD for the Kamehameha defense. 7-0, KSK, 4:26, Q1.

(11:53) Kamehameha will start on its 26. Yuen indeed at QB. Tanner Moku at RB.

Clemente gets his first carry on third-and-2 and they will measure. First down Kamehameha at the Punahou 17. Yuen with 7 yards on the bootleg to the 10. Moku with a tough run to the 6 and a personal foul moves it to the 3. Moku stuffed for no gain and then they try to run Clemente on the receiver run and he loses 1. Third-and-goal at the 4. Yuen with an incomplete pass but a flag comes out. PI on Punahou. Ball at the 2. No automatic first down. Andrew-Lee Smith with the carry and he’s marked down at pretty much the 1-inch line.

    Imo Ezra Evaimalo is clearly the State DPOY.


  3. IDGAF October 25, 2019 6:53 pm

    BS call on the roughing!


  4. Hau’ulaBoy October 25, 2019 8:41 pm

    Plenty of competition at DPOY. But he’s definitely the best player on this team. Alaka’i is my DPOY. But he’s top five at least IMO.


  5. ItIsWhatItIs October 25, 2019 8:59 pm

    If we throwing out DPOY nominations, I’m going with Herbig! That kid is a beast!!
