Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 This time, it was all Trojans. When Mililani and Campbell met in the regular season, Campbell led 21-7 at the half before the Trojans rallied for a 42-21 win. In the state semifinals, Mililani dominated the line of scrimmage and didn’t give Campbell’s outstanding quarterback, Isaac Hurd, much time to throw the ball. Hurd only broke away once, a 31-yard touchdown run late in the game.

The fastest way you’re going to […]

Punahou bulks up since win over Mililani

By Jerry Campany on November 22, 2013

Give Mililani a little assist for helping Punahou into its third straight state championship game. The Trojans had their way with Punahou’s offensive line in the Buffanblu’s 24-14 win at Mililani early in the season, specifically defensive end Kelii Padello. All Padello did was torch both of Punahou’s tackles for four sacks and keep pressure on Punahou quarterback Larry Tuileta throughout. Punahou went to work immediately after the win, moving Semisi Uluave from tackle to guard and putting Davis Miyashiro-Saipa’ia […]
