Dominant performance by Punahou. Stats and story to come soon on Hawaii Prep World.

Scoreless third quarter as the clock just continues to run. What a dominant performance by the Buffanblu.

Halftime. Running clock to start the second half.

MORE FIREWORKS. Punahou gets a safety on a bad punt snap and Vincent Terrell returns the ensuing free kick 57 yards for a TD. 38-0 Buffanblu and we haven’t even reached halftime.

Koa Eldredge catches his third TD of the season and Maretzki adds a 36-yard field goal and it’s 30-0 in the second quarter. Who saw this coming?

Punahou gets an interception on defense and Legend Matautia follows it up with a 4-yard TD run. The Buffanblu are rolling in Cali.

Punahou blocks a punt and returns it for a TD. Big play on special teams to take a 10-0 lead.

    This weekend wasn’t about OIA or ILH.
    It was about Hawaii vs everyone.
    Congratulations to all the teams that stepped up and proved Hawaii kids can ball.
