(:17) Punahou ball on its 29. Likely knee time although Punahou does have two timeouts. Unsportsmanlike conduct on Saint Louis so it’ll be at the 44. Now they go for it I’m sure. Kanoa Kalahiki with a 24-yard reception to the 32 and now Tim Horn in with 6 seconds to go. FG try from 49. Horn has it go off the right upright. Plenty of leg but no good. Halftime.

(2:14) Saint Louis ball on the 27. Second-and-2 from the 9 and Punahou calls timeout with 36 seconds to go. de Laura with a 5-yard TD run with 24 seconds to go.


(2:39) Punahou ball on its 25. Brady goes up top and Brian Cox with his second pick. He returns it 54 yards for a TD but an illegal block is called.

(4:23) Penalty on the return and Crusaders start on their 10. de Laura scrambles for 20 and a 15-yard targeting penalty on Punahou pushes ball past midfield. Another ill-advised throw from de Laura and it’s picked off by Pu’u-Robinson. Three of de Laura’s last four passes have been picked.

(4:37) Punahou takes over on the 34 of Saint Louis. Brady to the end zone and it’s PICKED OFF. What a play on the ball by Brian Cox. Great play to get it right back for the Crusaders.

(4:47) Pressure forces a poor throw by de Laura and Gilman gets his second pick.

(6:23) A 15-yard penalty on the punt by Saint Louis with hands to the face. So Punahou will start on the 23. Jordan Botelho with a TFL and then Gino Quinones with a sack. Incomplete and a punt. It’s amazing how Tuitele’s return has changed this game on defense for Saint Louis.

(8:01) Crusaders on their 40. Freshman Tevarua Tafiti with a TFL. Third-and-8. de Laura throws one right at Shiraki who drops the INT and probably takes it the other way. Punt time.

(9:01) 15-yard penalty after the pick on Punahou so it will start on its 27. Tuitele in the game for Saint Louis and he forces an incomplete pass. A run for a loss of 2 and an incomplete pass. Punahou will punt. Tuitele makes a huge difference immediately.

(10:57) Saint Louis ball on its 20. Dillon Lundberg has the sack on third down but is whistled for a face mask. Hiram deFries-Saronitman tips the ball at the line and Alakai Gilman with the INT for Punahou.

(11:32) Punahou starts on its 20. Brady hits Tamatoa Falatea, who has his first catch of the game. Two plays later, BRADY TO FALATEA. SEE YA. 66-yard TD. Here we go. 21-14, 10:57, Q2.

(11:47) Crusaders start on their 20. Second play and Roman Wilson gets open deep on the post and de Laura hits him. BOOM. Touchdown. Just like that. 80 yards. 14-14, 11:32.

Kainalu Pu’u Robinson blocks the punt and they rule he recovered it before going out of bounds. That was close to only being a safety. Touchdown Punahou, 14-7, 11:47, Q2.

(2:58) Punahou ball on its 41. Brady to Koa Eldredge for 13 yards on third-and-8 to move the chains. False start penalty doesn’t hurt the Buffanblu there. Crusaders get the stop on third-and-10 as Eldredge catches a ball but only for 5 yards. Punt.

(4:03) Crusaders on the Punahou 47. Third-and-4. Pass nearly picked by Trent Shiraki if it was on the money. Fourth down. de Laura scrambles as Punahou applies pressure. Liufau closing in and he gets pass off. Incomplete. Turnover on downs.

(4:16) Brady with time and goes deep but overthrown and right to Kamo’i Latu. INT for Saint Louis. Third game in a row with a pick for Latu.

(11:50) Punahou will start on its 10 after a penalty on the kickoff. Junior Hugh Brady at QB. DL Faatui Tuitele not starting for Saint Louis.

    Punahou OLine coach’s have done one hell of a job this week preparing for the game. Right Tackle #55 is doing one hell of a job!


  2. Good Story September 15, 2018 9:44 pm

    “Totally different level”
    “Head and shoulders above”
    “Best St. Louis team ever”
    …blah, blah, blah.

    They’re good, but some of you guys are tree much with your comments.


  3. Rrforlifebaby September 15, 2018 9:50 pm

    Lol. Must be cause the oline coach is an ’88 from da north side.


  4. ??? September 15, 2018 10:05 pm

    He still should be Kahuku coach!!


  5. 88 September 15, 2018 11:20 pm

    What a game… I hope the RedRaider coaches were watching.


  6. Dafun September 15, 2018 11:43 pm

    Punahou came prepared, St Louis was extremely sloppy tonight. Punahou took advantage of that. I expect St Louis to shape up after this very close victory. Hats off to punahou they officially look better than kahuku and I bet they would beat kahuku had they play now. Punahou definitely gave St Louis a run for their money tonight. I do have to say that punahou did have some extremly poor sports towards the ending and throughout the game. A lot of shoving and targeting along with late hits from punahou. Other than that great game by them


  7. Simple Simon September 15, 2018 11:50 pm

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand St Louis holds all night!!! AGAIN lol


  8. Dafun September 16, 2018 12:00 am

    Has anyone noticed only when St Louis plays punahou magically there’s a load of penalties? Every single year


  9. ??? September 16, 2018 9:09 pm

    @Dafun
    You obviously don’t go to STL-Kahuku games!

    Where’s Kamehameha !* and his STL Greatest Team Ever comments?


  10. Coach C. September 17, 2018 12:56 pm
