In an alarmingly physical contest, Lahainaluna High School’s drive for a state football championship came to a disappointing end last Saturday night at War Memorial Stadium, as the Kaiser Cougars scored a 20-9 win in the First Hawaiian Bank Division II State Championships semifinal game. The Lunas held a 9-7 lead at halftime, but the heavy hitting and oftentimes overzealous visitors from the Oahu Interscholastic League’s White Division took command of the game in the second half and pulled away for the win. The Cougars were penalized 15 times for 163 yards, including two late hits out of bounds and two helmet-to-helmet infractions, including a fourth quarter incident that sent a Luna player to the hospital. Injuries to key players limited the Luna offense in the second half, and the Kaiser team wore down the Maui Interscholastic League champs to advance to the D-II title game this weekend at Aloha Stadium against the Kauai High Red Raiders.
