No. 4 Leilehua rebounds, 45-12

By Kalani Takase
Advertiser Staff Writer

NANAKULI Junior quarterback Andrew Manley threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more to lead No. 4 Leilehua past Nanakuli, 45-12, last night.

Leilehua, which suffered its first loss in nearly a year last week, scored 31 unanswered points to improve to 6-1, 4-1 in the O'ahu Interscholastic Association Red West Division. Nanakuli fell to 1-6, 0-5 in the Red West, before a homecoming crowd of about 2,000.

"We started off slow, it went kind of back and forth early in the game," said Manley. "They're a good team, they put points up on us, but we just had to keep playing hard and we came through in the second half."

The Mules struck first with a five-play scoring drive, covering 78 yards, capped by Manley's 21-yard touchdown run. Maika Kunioka's extra point put Leilehua ahead, 7-0.

Nanakuli's Raven Garcia scored on the following possession on a 34-yard quarterback keeper around the right end. The extra point was no good and Leilehua led, 7-6, after one quarter.

Leilehua went back to work, scoring in just five plays, on Manley's 11-yard run.

However, on the Mules next possession, Manley was intercepted by Corey Johnson and the Golden Hawks capitalized on the turnover. Rico Wahilani ran for a 5-yard touchdown to cut the lead to 14-12 with 4:34 left in the half.

It was the closest Nanakuli got. Leilehua manufactured an eight-play drive, covering 51 yards, capped by Rico Newman's 1-yard plunge into the end zone that put Leilehua up, 21-12 at the half.

The Mules opened the second half with a 25-yard field goal by Kunioka and added scores on touchdown passes from Manley to Newman and Matt Reyes to extend their lead to 38-12 after three quarters.

"At halftime we talked about what worked in the first half," said Manley. "In the second half, we just stuck to what worked in the first half."

Leilehua closed the scoring on a 5-yard run by third-string quarterback Kamana Akagi early in the fourth quarter.

Manley finished 22-of-37 passing for 356 yards, with completions to six different receivers. Newman had six receptions for 104 yards and Edieson Dumlao caught eight passes for 94 yards.

"The scoreboard was no indication of how hard Nanakuli played," said Leilehua coach Nolan Tokuda. "They've only got about 30 (players), we're fortunate to have about 70, but they're still playing hard and the community is proud of them."
