(2:36) Pac-Five ball on its 45. Uechi drives inside the 10 with 21 seconds to go but is shaken up after taking a hit on a play. Chase Hedani comes in and Angelo Coluccio makes one of the craziest TD catches you will ever see. The ball popped into the air as he hit the ground but he managed to catch it between his legs and it ended up on the back of his legs against his lower back. What a catch. Touchdown Pac-Five. 26-6, :14.
(5:47) Saints ball on their 33. Kekahuna with a 40-yard reception on a juggling catch to continue his amazing game. Bubba Akana with the 10-yard TD to Chase Akana. 26-0, 2:49, Q4.
(8:08) Pac-Five ball on its 29. Sione Lolohea gets his third TFL on third down to force a punt.
(9:55) Saints get a first down and then go for it on fourth-and-8 at the Pac-Five 27. A 27-yard TD pass to Chase Akana from Bubba Akana is called back because Chase went out of bounds first. So now it will be fourth-and-23 at the 42. Saints will punt.
Uechi with a screen to Micah Kong for 31 yards and add 15 more for an illegal tackle. Robbie Lau slow to get up for St. Francis. Kordell Ng with an INT inside the 10 and he returns it to the Pac-Five 42.
(:24) Pac-Five ball on its 8. END 3.
(:41) Pac-Five starts on its 33. Junior DB Kordell Ng deflects a pass and then JP Tilly runs under it for the pick and he’s gone. 42-yard pick-six. 20-0, :27.
(1:13) Pac-Five downs the punt at the 2. Saints backed up. St. Francis puts Shepherd Kekahuna in the backfield. QB draw and he has room and HE IS GONE. 98-yard TD run. OL Kawena Fernandez with a right leg injury on the play for the Saints, who lead 14-0.
Pac-Five started on its 39. Wolfpack had two runs on second-and-1 and third-and-1 and couldn’t get it. Robbie Lau with the TFL to force a punt.

Makana Poole with a TFL for the Saints to make it third-and-9. Uechi to Robert Walker Jr. for 7 yards and then the Saints jump offsides on fourth-and-2. Uechi to Nakamura over the middle for 14 yards to the 8. Excellent first drive by the Wolfpack. The 12th play of the drive is second-and-goal from the 8.

(:48) Saints ball on their 34. Akana misses Kekahuna for a TD with five seconds left. I think the pressure saved a TD for Pac-Five as Akana took a shot. Fourth-and-4 with five seconds on the clock. Hail Mary is incomplete. HALF.
(2:23) Pac-Five ball on its 24. Wolfpack try a couple of toss sweeps and it’s third-and-8. Chansen Oshiro dinged up on a play but he’s OK it looks like. Uechi misses an open reciever on third down and Pac-Five is three-and-out.

Saints call timeout with Pac-Five facing third-and-1 at the St. Francis 11. Laitin Bradley‘s third straight run goes for 2 yards to the 9 to move the chains. Sione Lolohea with a TFL and then Jackie Johnson with a sack to force fourth-and-goal. A 28-yard field goal attempt is no good.
Saints ball on their 17. Pac-Five’s Leif Fautanu recovers a fumble on the St. Francis 20.
Pac-Five will get it for the first time on its 30. Sophomore Rocket Uechi gets the start at QB and hits Breyndon Nakamura on a little screen pass for 11 yards.
