Waianae-Kealakehe bonus coverage

“Bonus coverage” as in some extra paragraphs of my story on Waianae’s 34-16 win over Kealakehe. We didn’t have quite enough space in print for all my stuff, so here it is.

Waianae’s offense was still hot when it got the ball back a minute later after a Kealakehe four and out. The Seariders drove 80 yards in just six plays as Wilson found Brian Paul Manuel on a 28-yard gain, and later hit Kamana on a quick bubble screen for a 43-yard touchdown jaunt. Panui hauled in a pass from Wilson on the ensuing 2-point play and Waianae led 28-0 with 2:01 remaining in the half.

Yates drilled a 41-yard field goal to end the first half, and two possessions later, found Jacob Ontiveros for a 35-yard touchdown pass to bring the Waveriders within 28-10 with 6:51 to go in the third quarter.

James Wilson’s 46-yard punt return gave Waianae first down deep in Kealakehe territory, and Pule Wilson reached over the goal line for a 1-yard keeper as Waianae’s lead increased to 34-10 with 2:25 left in the third.

Constant pressure from Josaiah Hoopii, Peter Ulu-Fano and Kennedy Tulimasealii — the trio combined for three sacks — kept Yates off balance. By the time Psalm Wooching scored on a 1-yard touchdown with 4:46 left to play, it was too late.
