FINAL: Mililani 31, Farrington 28.


Trojans running out the clock. Kila and Olomua picking up first downs and the Govs burn all three time outs. :37 left and the Trojans take a knee.


Wow. Moments after Moses-Sanchez is carried off with a leg injury, Rapoza hits Iosefo Ah Ching for 35 yards and then TJ Tautolo for a 12-yard TD. PAT pass to Ah Ching good. MIL 31, FARM 28, 1:29.


Trojans remain aggressive, two completions and a 13-yard gain by Kila. Then Gabriel has another fake and tuck around left end. His second TD run is a 27 harder. MIL 31, FAR 20, 2:36.


Govs drive 70 yards in 13 plays with Rapoza at the steering wheel. He finds Alaivanu-Afe on a short pass and he turns it into a 22-yard TD. PAT misses. MIL 24, FAR 20, 3:54.


Govs go three and out and punt. Trojans drive 43 yards in five plays to set up a 29-yard field goal by Damien Santiago. MIL 24, FAR 14, 7:27.


Mililani pins Farrington with a punt. The Govs’ punt goes out at their 30. Four plays later, Gabriel scores on a 3-yard keeper. MIL 21, FAR 14, 11:28.

Mililani’s defense, nine in the bid, no safety deep. Faamatau still slips through for 17 yards. Five plays later on fourth and 4, Rapoza sends a laser to Mosi Alaivanu-Afe, who shreds off a tackler and races down the left sideline for a 33-yard TD. PAT pass by Rapoza is incomplete, but a personal foul call on Mililani replays the PAT. This time Faamatau scores out of the Wildcat. FAR 14, MIL 14, 4:46.

Govs punt after stalling at their 34. Second play of Mililani’s series, Kailiohu Kila blasts up the middle untouched for a 60-yard TD jaunt. MIL 14, FAR 6, 9:18.

They exchange punts, and then an incredible interception by Iosefa Ah Ching as he wrestles the ball away from Andrew Vallasdares on a third-down throw on the run by Gabriel.

Mililani takes a knee to end the half.


Trojans fumble a punt snap and the Govs have the ball near midfield, but after picking up a first down, they stall at the 22. Trojans stop Faamatau on a short fourth and 2 pass.

Moments later, huge play for FHS: Isaiah Taumua picks off a Gabriel pass in the flat and races to the end zone for a 70-yard pick-6. Freedom Alualu’s PAT is no good. MIL 7, FAR 6, 4:06.


Uahinui sacked at the 2 for an 18-yard loss. Another three and out. Mililani at midfield as the quarter ends.


Mililani personal foul keeps a Farrington drive alive, but the Govs later punt. MIlilani’s ensuing drive stalls as well as Gabriel and Tovi are out of sync on back-to-back throws.


Mililani opens the game with a turnover, Gabriel’s pass in the red zone is intercepted.

Govs three and out, punt. Then the Trojans go into hurry-up mode and drive 65 yards in four plays. 40-yard strike to Roman Tovi sets up an 11-yard toss from Gabriel to Olomua for a TD. MIL 7, FAR 0, 6:26.
