Earlier this evening at the Aloha Stadium, the Lahainaluna High School Lunas football team kicked off against a very powerful Konawaena High School football team. The game was equally matched with a lot of points scored from both powerhouse teams.
Lahainaluna lead Konawaena in the 4th quarter until tying up the game at 31-31 with 45 seconds left leading to overtime. Lunas trailed 37-38 with the decision to kick or go for the two. 38-38, Lunas went on for a second, third- up to seven overtime periods! The Lahainaluna Football team battled Konawaena to the very last dying seconds of the game. During the 7th overtime period, Konawaena fumbled the ball on their own goal line and the Lunas powered their way through to keep the HHSAA Division 2 Football Title and hardware on Maui.
On behalf of all of us at MAUIWatch.com and BIGISLANDWatch.com, we send our congratulations to the Lahainaluna High School Athletic Department, coach Garrett Tihada, and the entire Lahainaluna football team for a well-fought game.
