Kamehameha Maui 21, Maui High 14, final
September 30, 2012 - Robert Collias
(UPDATE 12:28 a.m.): Kamehameha Maui wins the second-round opener 21-14 over Maui High after holding on for dear life in the second half Saturday night at Kanaiaupuni Stadium.
No matter how they got there, the Warriors (2-3 MIL) are 1-0 in the second round, tied with Lahainaluna.
"That's beautiful, that's why I love rounds," Kamehameha coach Kevin O'Brien said after reminding me these two have played some barnburners in the last two seasons (read the link above).
Kamehameha quarterback Kalai Yap, the MIL's leading rusher with 351 yards and the player responsible for 78 percent of the Warriors' offensive production this season, missed the game because he has not been cleared to play following a concussion suffered in their 62-18 loss to Baldwin two weeks ago.
Yap was in his jersey and sweatpants, helping the offense practice on the field before the game and holding up play signs during it, but he told me as I passed the team entering the stadium that he has not passed his concussion test.
This was a rematch of the Sabers' 10-7 win on Aug. 24 when they drove the length of the field in a no-huddle offense and scored the game-winner with 18 seconds left.
Meanwhile, Lahainaluna continues to dominate the MIL like no one has in recent memory after the Lunas' 42-0 win Friday night at King Kekaulike Stadium.
