Pascua rushed for four touchdowns in the first half as ‘Iolani built a 48-6 lead at the break.

Quarterback Austin Jim On completed 12 of 20 passes for 158 yards with touchdown throws of 10 yards to Keoni-Kordell Makekau and 25 to Connor Ohira as the Raiders extended their winning streak against the Wolf Pack to 13 games dating back to 2007.

‘Iolani (3-1, 2-1) took over sole possession of first place in the ILH Division II race.

Raiders linebacker Corbin Morisada led the defense with two sacks and an interception.

Pac-Five quarterback Kainoa Ferreira finished 21-for-38 for 291 yards and two touchdowns. Jarrod Infante had nine receptions for 150 yards and senior Tsubasa Brennan, the ILH’s leading receiver, finished with eight catches for 73 yards.
