Honokaa Continues Rocking on the Big Island, 27-23

On the Valley Isle, the Division I Maui Sabers (4-1, 3-1 MIL) had their hands full against D-II Kamehameha-Maui and escaped with a 10-3 win.
The Warriors, who made it all the way to the Division II state final a year ago, are now 0-4 (0-3 in the MIL) and the four losses have been by 4, 7, 7 and 8 points.
Roosevelt Has What It Takes In The End, 31-24
In a back-and-forth, rollicking game at their home stadium, Roosevelt (1-2, 1-1 OIA D-I) looked doomed when Radford scored with less than three minutes to take a one-point lead.
But the Rough Riders quickly went to work and Silas Kekahuna went around left end for a 15-yard touchdown less than a minute later to give Roosevelt a 31-24 victory over Radford (1-3, 0-2).
