Sabers vs Tigers
Pearl City, HI — Led by Tayson Tiitii, Lincoln Uiagalelei, Tamatoa Gaoteote and Zechariah Alualu-Tuiolemotu, our defensive front-7 put on another dominating performance with numerous tackles for loss and sacks. Cornerbacks Brock Gasper-Birgado and Kaden Cochran shut down the Tiger wide receivers but also stepped up against the run, making some nice open field tackles. James Steffany-Fiame nearly intercepted 2 passes on defense. Fiame also led the team in scoring with a rushing touchdown on offense and a punt return for a touchdown! Fiame has to be in the lead for League MVP honors. DJ Faavi connected with Logan Hange for a 40 yard touchdown pass and then again on the ensuing two point conversion. Faavi also ran in a two point conversion. Jayzen Fernandez took a screen pass 30 yards to set up a 9 yard touchdown run by Zion Ishimine. Fernandez also got into the end zone on the ensuing two point conversion. The best highlight of the game was a two point conversion pass caught by Maka Hardie. Hardie, one of the smallest players on our team, shook the socks off of a good sized Windward Tigers linebacker and got into the end zone untouched! The play got our crowd cheering and also got our sideline fired up! MVP honors for this game went to our Offensive Line. These guys dominated the line of scrimmage, created huge running lanes for our running backs and didn’t give up a sack all game. Javian Goo, Amarxus Amosa, Riley Leuma, Aloalii Malaki and Tayson Tiitii.
