Seabury Hall wins title with another unbeaten season
The Seabury Hall eight-player football team completed its second unbeaten season in the two years of the sport’s official status in the Maui Interscholastic League by defeating Molokai 25-14 on Saturday in Hoolehua.
Jaxson Stinger ran for 98 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries and completed a scoring pass for the Spartans (6-0), and Cayde Omura ran 10 times for 80 yards, with a 55-yard touchdown.
“Those are two very special guys, but you have to give the kids who block for them a lot of credit, too,” said Seabury coach Andrew Burger, noting the holes created by Josh Benjenaru, Levi Okazaki and Bruno Bernachi.
Stinger ran 11 times for 98 yards, with touchdowns of 55 and 30 yards, and completed five of 12 passes for 96 yards, with a scoring pass to Nyck Yashiro.
The Spartans outscored their opponents 232-53 this season. Burger said the defensive performances of Mogul Luuwai, Carter Christie, Hobbs Weymouth and Kawai Luuwai were key in Saturday’s game.
Mogul Luuwai, Christie, Yashiro and Omura are part of the team’s senior class.
“There’s pride in creating a culture for these younger guys,” Burger said. “The seniors, particularly, were the guys who started the program four years ago. For them, it was leaving a legacy of being great examples for these younger guys.”
David Rapanot returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown for the Farmers (3-2). Stinger’s first touchdown run tied the score, and after Molokai fumbled on the ensuing kickoff, Stinger scored again.
Omura ran for a score in the third quarter, and Yashiro’s touchdown catch widened the lead later in the period.
