Pac-Five 20, Waialua 14
The Wolfpack offense and special teams sparked a victory over the Bulldogs at Waialua.
Running back Joshua Arcayena scored twice while also tacking on a 2-point conversion. The special teams also proved to be a great asset, with multiple long returns by Ian Canute that put the offense in position to score off of a short field. With 8:09 left in the game and Pac-Five leading 20-0, the match seemed all but sealed in favor of the Wolfpack.
The Bulldogs did not go down quietly, as Justyce Lacar got the ball into the end zone twice within four minutes. The first coming off a shifty 5-yard scramble and second being a 1-yard touchdown pass to Kayde Mahuka closing the score to 20-14.
Waialua then recovered an onside kick with 3:12 left. But after one first down, the stifling Wolfpack defense held.
