Prep football: Mililani keeps Waianae winless

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

Coming off a sound defeat at the hands of powerhouse Saint Louis a week ago, Mililani marched into Waianae and came away with a 19-0 win Friday night at Raymond Torii Field.
“We can’t complain coming away with a victory at Waianae,” Trojans coach Rod York said. “We’re happy to go into a bye week with confidence. We’ll have time to get better. It’s about not turning the ball over, playing well on special teams and the defense got a shutout. Coach Sam Downey and the defensive staff did a great job.”
Mililani improved to 1-1 in Oahu Interscholastic Association Red West play (2-2 overall). Waianae dropped to 0-4 (0-2 league). All four losses have been to teams that are currently in the Top 10 or were in the poll earlier in the season.
A subdued crowd of about 1,500 saw the visiting Trojans stifle Waianae’s offense, sacking quarterback Kekoa Kaluhiokalani five times. Mililani permitted just 33 rushing yards by Waianae’s Wing-T attack.
Offensively, Mililani quarterback Jarin Morikawa was 23-for-30 for 200 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. His pinpoint accuracy and Waianae’s soft coverage allowed Deshawn Duncan-Benson (11 receptions, 133 yards) and Kaimi Wilson (10 catches, 66 yards) to find their openings.
