The Rough Riders take no chances and put Ogata back in the game. They pick up a first down and eventually, Ogata takes a knee to end the game. This win doesn’t count on Roosevelt’s league standings, but it’s an interesting win because of the 19 penalties for 170 yards. Something they can work on at practice in the coming week.

A Pac-Five player was injured (leg cramp) on the previous play, and two plays later, another Wolfpack player is down after a 27-yard run by RB Kalei Wahilani with 2:07 left. At this point, I think Pac-Five coach Kip Botelho just wants this to get over without any more injuries. Roosevelt’s backup RB, Wahilani, loses the ball on the handoff, it goes airborne, and Dane Ishibashi snags it out of mid-air. He sprints 45 yards to paydirt for Pac-Five’s first TD of the game. The PAT pass by Hedani is incomplete. ROOSEVELT 21, PAC-FIVE 6, Q4, 1:52.

Hedani returns to the game and seems OK. Two more sacks by Roosevelt, and that’s seven for the game. Punt bounces near midfield and Monteilh snags it trying to make a play, but he’s brought down for a three-yard loss. Roosevelt with its 19th penalty, a blindside block. Might as well go for 20?

Roosevelt sends reserve QB Kolea Pa-Macalino into the game and they mostly run the ball. Punt and fair catch gives Pac-Five the ball at its 35 with 6:13 to play.

Roosevelt defense is bringing the heat back. Hedani goes down for a short loss, but on third and long, he’s hit by Kaeo Akana on a one-yard gain and is injured. He gets up within a minute, but that was a scary moment for the Wolfpack. Punt is fairly short, but the return is a minus-12 for Aalona Monteilh. Roosevelt ball at its 24 with 8:13 remaining.

The third quarter ends with Roosevelt at the Pac-Five 28-yard line. Back-to-back holding calls on the Rough Riders make it 17 penalties for 150 yards already. Fourth and 10, Segawa’s 45-yard field goal try has the distance, but is wide. Touchback, Pac-Five ball at its 20 with 11:43 to go in the fourth.

Roosevelt’s Ogata is scrambling again, sacked, but a personal foul after the whistle is called on Pac-Five. Then Ogata slices up the hashmarks for a 17-yard pass. After a short completion, there is an injury time out with a Pac-Five cornerback down near the Wolfpack sideline with 1:49 left in the third quarter.

Pac-Five ball, and there’s a defensive holding penalty on Roosevelt. That’s 13 yellow flags already for Roosevelt (106 penalty yards). Yikes. After completing just one pass in the first half, Hedani has completions to RB/LB Arceyana, the two-way ironman, and WR Angelo Coluccio. But first down at the Roosevelt 49 goes bust when a backup RB goes the wrong way. Looks like he was expecting a pitch and Hedani runs back and hands the ball to him. Maybe it was supposed to be a draw? It’s a four-yard loss, and after two incompletions, Pac-Five punts again. That’s their sixth punt of the game. Rooseelt ball at its 27, 3:33 left third quarter.

Roosevelt drives to the Pac-Five 1, but the ‘Pack makes a stand and sends Roosevelt backwards to the 37. Roosevelt with three penalties already in the second half. Huge sack by Ian Ishibashi on Ogata is a loss of 19 yards. Impressive stand by Pac-Five as Roosevelt punts, ball downed at the 5.
