HHSAA Division II FOOTBALL: ‘Iolani takes home division II football championship title

By Wes Nakama

Sophomore quarterback Reece Foy completed 20 of 24 passes for 297 yards and a record five touchdowns Friday night as ‘Iolani defeated Kaimuki, 49-14, to win its fourth straight First Hawaiian Bank/Hawaii High School Athletic Association Division II Football State Championship at Aloha Stadium.

The Raiders finished the season at 10-3 with their fifth title in six years. Kaimuki, appearing in its first state championship game, ended the year at 12-3.

‘Iolani took a 7-0 lead two minutes into the second quarter after Ammon Baldomero’s 1-yard touchdown run and Jordan Lee’s extra point.  Scott Tan recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, and the Raiders capitalized two plays later on a double-flea-flicker pass from Foy to Trevyn Tulonghari for a 34-yard TD.

‘Iolani took a 21-0 lead into halftime after a 22-yard scoring pass play from Foy to Baldomero, who ran it in after Josiah Sukumaran caught a swing pass to the right side and lateraled the ball.

The Raiders made it 28-0 three minutes into the second half after Foy’s 20-yard touchdown pass to Dane Arakawa. Kaimuki responded with its own trick play -- a swing lateral from quarterback Nahoa Spencer to Wiseman Demei, who threw it to Kevin Tofiga, who ran in untouched to complete a 68-yard TD.

‘Iolani came right back, scoring on Lee’s 15-yard touchdown run and PAT to make it 35-7 with 4:46 remaining in the third quarter.
