Hawaii Prep pulls off the first round’s biggest upset

Kalei Konrad’s 30-yard field goal with 2 minutes remaining gave Ka Makani a stunning 17-14 victory over host Moanalua in the opening round of the First Hawaiian Bank Division II State Football Championships last night.

Hawaii Prep (11-0) handed Na Menehune (10-2) their first loss in more than two months to advance to the semifinals against Kauai on Friday at Vidinha Stadium.

Aiea 20, Lahainaluna 12

Eric Badoyen blocked an extra-point attempt late in the fourth quarter to preserve the lead, and Anae Vaa added the exclamation point with a 43-yard touchdown run from scrimmage in the final 30 seconds as Aiea beat Lahainaluna 20-12 last night at Aiea High School field in a first-round game of the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA Division II State Football Championships.


With the victory, Na Alii (9-3) advanced to play top seed ‘Iolani on Friday at Radford.
Lahainaluna, the MIL Division II champion, finished the season with a 6-4 record.

Farrington 48, Honokaa 6

Harry Tuimaseve rushed for a career-high 258 yards and Alvin Faamausili hauled in two touchdown passes as Farrington pulled away for a 48-16 win over Honokaa last night in the opening round of the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA Division I State Football Championships.


Farrington advanced to the semifinals and will meet nemesis Kahuku on Friday at Aloha Stadium. The win came at a cost to the Governors (9-2), who lost left tackle Joseph Siliga to an ejection in the second half. If the ruling is upheld, the 6-foot-1, 231-pound senior will be suspended for the Kahuku game.

Leilehua 48, Baldwin 12

Kamana Akagi caught three of Andrew Manley’s five first-half touchdown passes as the Mules eased to a 48-12 victory over the Bears in a Division I quarterfinal mismatch at War Memorial Stadium.


It marked the third straight year that Baldwin’s season came to an end against Leilehua, and each time Manley was at the controls of the Mules’ attack.

The win improved Leilehua’s record to 9-3 and earned the Mules a berth in Friday’s semifinals against ILH champion and second-seeded Kamehameha at Aloha Stadium. Baldwin, the five-time MIL D-I champion, closed out its season with a 6-4 record.
