After a wild opening night in prep football Friday, we have three games scheduled for Saturday on Oahu.
It’s going to be hard to top Friday night’s classic between Waianae and Kamehameha, but ranked teams from the ILH and OIA square off again as No. 2 Saint Louis travels to face No. 5 Mililani at John Kauinana Stadium. It’s the season debut for both teams and the first look in 2016 at Saint Louis senior QB Tua Tagovailoa, who is in pursuit of Timmy Chang’s all-time passing record, among other things. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. and live updates will follow below:
Tonight’s game between Saint Louis and Mililani has been called after the first quarter because of a power outage.
No. 2 Saint Louis 7, No. 5 Mililani 0, 12:00, Q2
Delay now a full 20 minutes but lights have finally stayed on and are warming up. Maybe 10 minutes to getting back at it? Nope. Lights go out at 7:27 p.m.
Lights back out at 7:13 p.m. Here’s the Q1 boxscore while we wait…Crusaders with a 133-34 edge in total yards.

Delay starts at 7:06 p.m. Lights back on at 7:10 p.m. When we start it should be third-and-16 for Saint Louis at its 39.
They will stop play because we still have no lights. Can also confirm via Nick Abramo that Mililani OL Sergio Muasau, a freshman, was kicked out for hitting a Saint Louis player while on the ground that resulted in a personal foul. Was called a punch.
Crusaders take over on 45 and a holding call deep in the backfield loses 16 yards. First-and-29.
Trojans start on their 32. Noa Purcell stuffs a run and a deep ball after a Mililani penalty is picked off by Jalen Saole. Perfect coverage by Saole.
SHOWTIME. Tagovailoa dodges just about everyone on defense and speeds for a 36-yard TD but it’s called back because of a hold. Two short pass completions and then Jahred Silofau with a 15-yard TD run. Tagovailoa 7-10, 61 yards, five carries, 42 yards. 7-0 StL, 1:41.
Sun is setting and it’s getting darker. Still no lights. After a 2-yard run Gabriel goes deep again and an easy hold is called. Tovi draws the penalty on the Saint Louis DB. Kila fumbles and Saint Louis takes over on its 36. Looked like Isaiah Taliulu on the force and Isaiah Feary on the recovery.
Tagovailoa back out for his second drive after a couple of uncharacteristic throws to start. Maybe a little jitters? Crusaders start on their 26. Quick out to Jaymason Nunuha for 11. Personal foul Mililani and same play to Nunuha for 9 more. Tagovailoa back the other way to Makoa Close for 8 yards and Rod York calls timeout. Way too easy for the Crusaders so far on this drive. Tua finds Noah Alejado in the slot for 13. Third-and-8 at the 16 and Tagovailoa tries to scramble but is corralled for no gain. Fourth-and-8. Tua scrambles again but Mililani is disciplined and they get Tagovailoa down, who slips a yard short. Turnover on downs.
Mililani will start on its 20. No scoreboard so hard to tell the time on the clock. RB Kailiohu Kila carries twice for 4 yards and Gabriel just overthrows Tovi on a deep ball down the sideline. Three-and-out.
Tagovailoa takes off on the first play and scrambles for 19 yards. He hits his first pass of the season for 10 but is late on the next deep throw to the end zone and almost picked off. DL Joshua Banks sacks Tagovailoa who tries to escape up the middle for a sack. Third-and-15 and Tagovailoa runs out wide and has a man DEEP but underthrows Chris Sykes. StL will punt.
We start with no power. Once the sun goes down who knows what happens. Mililani gets a first down on two runs by Darius Muasau but Saint Louis LB Dylan Toilolo stops the next run on third down and Mililani will punt.
Mililani will receive.
Looks like we’ll kick right at 6:30 p.m…or not. Electricity just went out at 6:22 p.m. Time will be kept on field and it looks like we’ll stay on target for 6:30 kick.
