Big spark for the Govs when Selau Kalani returns an interception 33 yards to the Punahou 40. That drive stalls at the Punahou 20.
Sagapolutele shows his youth at times, but he reads the inside blitz and fires a dart to slotback Moku Dancil-Evans for a 51-yard TD. PUNAHOU 31, FARRINGTON 0, 7:29, Q3.
Whoa Nellie! John-Keawe Sagapolutele, a freshman quarterback, enters the game for Punahou and his first snap is an 82-yard TD pass to Raydan Kiaaina-Caires, who breaks a tackle near the 25-yard line and scores. PUNAHOU 24, FARRINGTON 0, 3:03, Q2.
Bad news for the Buffanblu with 7:31 left in the first half. Brady scrambled right on a broken play and was stopped near the right sideline at the 5-yard line. He has an injured leg and is helped to the bench by trainers. Punahou whistled for unsportsmanlike conduct. After Koa Eldredge takes over at QB and runs for 3 yards, Farrington is flagged for conduct. Field goal by Quinn Maretzki from 27 yards is good. PUNAHOU 17, FARRINGTON 0, 5:37, Q2.
For a second series in a row, the Buffanblu fail to score. Brady has his first incompletion after seven strikes. But Farrington loses the ball on the first play of the next series. Millare fumbles and Punahou DE Siupelimani Uluave recovers at the Farrington 38.
Farrington comes up with two sacks of Hugh Brady on the next series and forces a punt. First quarter comes to an end with the Govs driving, “FIRST AND TEN, FARRINGTON!”
Farrington comes out firing in this third series. Christian Havea, the 6-2, 230-pound basketball player, hauls in a 12-yard pass. He is IMPOSING. But the drive dies as Jarrin Sato deflects two passes. He is just quicker and gets a better read on the ball than Farrington’s receivers, who were too slow to react and fight for the ball.
Another three and out for Farrington, and punter Raymond Millare bobbles the snap, runs for a six-yard gain, short of the first down. Punahou ball at the Farrington 13. Two plays later, Terrell jump cuts to the left sideline and is gone, untouched for a 15-yard TD. His second TD of the game. PUNAHOU 14, FARRINGTON 0, 5:45, Q1.
Punahou backs Farrington up with a touchback by Quinn Maretzki on the opening kickoff, and the Govs’ 36-yard punt goes out of bounds at their own 40. Punahou drives to paydirt in seven plays. RB Vincent Terrell scoots around left end for an 8-yard TD. PUNAHOU 7, FARRINGTON 0, 8:00, Q1.
Farrington wins the coin toss and elects to receive. Punahou will defend the north end zone and have the wind at its back. #defendkalihi against #sonsofoahu.
Weather is clear at Skippa Diaz Stadium. Breezy maybe 5-15 mph coming in from north/northeast.
