HHSAA Division I FOOTBALL: #1 Kahuku defeats Farrington, 47-14

By Wes Nakama

Aofaga Wily rushed for 141 yards and four touchdowns and Kahuku limited Farrington to five first-half yards and 82 yards total Friday night as the Red Raiders stifled Farrington, 47-14, in the First Hawaiian Bank/Hawai'i High School Athletic Association Division I Football State Championship semifinals.

A crowd of about 5,500 at Aloha Stadium's Hawaiian Airlines Field watched the Red Raiders improve to 11-0 and advance to face Punahou (8-2) at 7 p.m. on Nov. 22 in a rematch of last year's title game.

Wily scored three touchdowns on runs of 5, 2 and 18 yards in the game's first 18 minutes as Kahuku jumped out to a 21-0 lead. Jake Samsel then drilled a 49-yard field goal with 2:13 remaining in the half to make it 24-0.

The Red Raiders limited the Governors' vaunted rushing attack to just two yards on 20 carries, including three sacks for minus-17 yards, in the first half.

Lasselle Thompson then returned the second-half kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown to help push the lead to 31-0.
