The ball is on the ground and still moving — a live ball — when Baldwin punt returner La‘akea Kahoohanohano-Davis picks it up and races to the end zone. However, the official nearby blows his whistle after Davis is 10 yards up the sideline. The officials’ explanation on the sideline was that the official called the play dead because “both teams had stopped trying”.
Waianae led 21-6 with 49 seconds left in the third quarter at the time of the play. The Seariders went on to win the game by that score.
