Five big plays from Hawaii’s 49-42 victory over Army

Chosen and described by the Star-Advertiser’s Dave Reardon

By Dave Reardon

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Dec 02, 2013

~~<p><strong>1. Missing Warrior<br />
</strong>&raquo; <strong>Situation</strong>: Army 0, Hawaii 0, 13:27 remaining, first quarter, Hawaii ball, first-and-10 at own 46<br />
&raquo; <strong>The Play</strong>: Before the snap of Hawaii's first play, wide receiver Scott Harding runs off the field, a finger pointed skyward in tribute to running back Willis Wilson, who died at Sandy Beach in the early-morning hours, apparently of drowning. Joey Iosefa rushed for a 1-yard gain.<br />
&raquo; <strong>Impact</strong>: Playing with emotion and passion, Hawaii jumped out to a 14-0 lead.<br />
&raquo; <strong>Harding</strong>: &quot;We knew we could not lose tonight. There was no choice. We had to win for Will.&quot;</p>
<p><strong>2. Jump pass<br />
</strong>&raquo; <strong>Situation</strong>: Hawaii 21, Army 7, 2:22 remaining, second quarter, Hawaii ball, first-and-goal at Army 1<br />
&raquo; <strong>The Play</strong>: Taking a direct snap, Iosefa runs to the line of scrimmage, then completes a jump pass in the end zone to wide-open tight end Harold Moleni.<br />
&raquo; <strong>Impact</strong>: Operating out of the wildcat formation, Iosefa, a former high school quarterback, completed his one pass of the season to give Hawaii a 28-7 halftime lead. He later rushes for an 8-yard touchdown from the same formation.<br />
&raquo; <strong>Army coach Rich Ellerson</strong>: &quot;I can't say we (were prepared for Iosefa in that formation). We treated him like if 15 (Ikaika Woolsey) was in the game. But having a defense isn't the same as getting him stopped.&quot;</p>
