Joshua Matagi recovers a Kamehameha fumble at the Warriors’ 36-yard line and Farrington marches in to score. Afe sneaks in for a 1-yard TD after firing completions of 25 and 13 yards to Kalani. The 2-point try is no good due to a bad snap. KAMEHAMEHA 32, FARRINGTON 21, 4:53, Q4.

Jace Ehia hauls in a 19-yard TD pass from Afe, who rolled right to avoid Kamehameha’s tough pass rush. Afe hits Millare on the 2-point conversion. KAMEHAMEHA 32, FARRINGTON 15, 7:51, Q4.

Kamehameha tries an onside kick and is whistled for an illegal block (blindside). That’s illegal now. Farrington has the ball at the Kamehameha 29-yard line.

Farrington gets on the scoreboard with a six-play, 73-yard drive. Afe finds Millare for a 37-yard gain, then a 29-yard strike in traffic before Tanuvasa scores on a 2-yard blast. KAMEHAMEHA 22, FARRINGTON 7, 4:54, Q3.

The Warriors open the second half with a nine-play, 60-yard scoring drive. Davis Mun hauls in a 3-yard TD pass from Togiai on another slant pass. PAT snap is off target, holder Ramos’ prayer is hauled in by Ezra Evaimalo, but an ineligible man downfield call kills the play. Not sure, but there may have been an incompletion call, as well. KAMEHAMEHA 22, FARRINGTON 0, 7:10, Q3.

After stopping the Warriors near the goal line, Farrington runs two plays to end the half. Kamehameha leads at the break 16-0.

Kamehameha begins its sixth series at its 9 after Farrington’s punt, and they go into hurry-up mode mostly on the ground. Bush for 11 yards. Then 20 yards on a draw. Then Serrao for 8. A pass from Togiai to Akima on the slant again for 17. Serrao for 5. Farrington is bushed, no pun intended, and calls time out with 4:09 left in the first half. Slip screen pass from Togiai to Skyler Ramos, his first catch of the game, for 11 yards to the 15. After a second-down scramble by Togiai for 10 yards, ball is at the 4. Bush carries to the 1, but an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty is assessed. Fourth and goal from the 16, Togiai connects with Brock Ai, who is brought down at the 4 by Wendell Alob.

Farrington starts at its 42 after a 38-yard kickoff return by Treshawn Kepa. Govs drive to the Kamehameha 36 and stall. This is their fifth punt in five possessions.

Kamehameha, as always, committed to establishing the ground game. They’re pounding away with Serrao and Reino Bush again, then a 22-yard screen pass to Serrao to the Govs’ 20. Warriors get a 35-yard field goal by Preston Rezentes. KAMEHAMEHA 16, FARRINGTON 0, 8:40, Q2.

Govs’ fourth possession ends in a fourth punt. Ball returned 4 yards by Serrao to the Kamehameha 30.


Farrington takes over at its 30, first-down run by Samsen Tanuvasa no gain and the first quarter ends with Kamehameha ahead 13-0.

Warriors incomplete pass on third-and-1, pun.

Governors with another three and out, then a 51-yard punt downed at the Kamehameha 16.

Warriors start their third series at their 35. Six plays, 65 yards, a 27-yard TD pass from Christmas Togiai to Braden Akima on a slant. KAMEHAMEHA 13, FARRINGTON 0, 2:25, Q1.

Farrington goes three and out, with a sack by Micah Lilo stumping the Governors. Punt.

Kamehameha’s second series stalls at the Farrington 32, fourth and 6, and they opt to punt. Touchback.

Farrington struggles to move the ball on its first series, punt.

A 41-yard kick return by Alec Serrao sparks a strong opening series by the Warriors. Five plays, 45 yards, and Serrao negotiates a nice 21-yard run off right tackle for a TD. PAT kick is no good. KAMEHAMEHA 6, FARRINGTON 0, 10:08, Q1.


8:02 p.m. Farrington wins the coin toss and elects to defer. Kamehameha will receive from the ewa end zone and we’re ready to go.

7:50 p.m. We’re nearing kickoff under the lights at Kunuiakea Stadium. It was overcast earlier, moderate weather. Not super humid or hot, and not much breeze. The flags are flowing a bit now, but conditions overall are almost perfect. Kamehameha is in white helmets and pants with blue stripe (piping) on each side, navy blue jerseys with double shoulder stripes (Indianapolis/Baltimore Colts style). Farrington is in maroon helmets with white cages, white jerseys and pants, no stripes. Clean look for each team. Only fitting, no pun intended, in this classic matchup between longtime neighbors in Kalihi.

5:15 p.m. The junior varsity game kicked off at 5 p.m. Overcast and partly cloudy, no wind at all yet.

SERIES HISTORY: Kamehameha leads 38-20
NOTES: The Governors are 0-2 when traveling up the hill to play Kamehameha, and haven’t beaten the Warriors since 2011 when Tyler Taumua ran for 129 yards at Kaiser (That is the last time a Farrington running back exceeded 100 yards against the Warriors.) Farrington has won on the Kamehameha campus before, though, beating Damien there 25-0 way back in 1966 behind Pat Oka and Bob Kaleiwahea. Kamehameha has had a running back go over 100 yards in the last two meetings against Farrington, with Kanoa Shannon gaining 110 last year and Brandon Kahookele going for 200 in 2013. This is the first time the neighbors have faced each other in successive years since meeting every year from 1985-1999.
