HONOLULU — Colt Brennan threw for 326 yards and five touchdowns as Hawai’i put on an offensive show and defeated San Diego State 49-38 on Saturday night in the season finale for both teams.
Freshman Ryan Grice-Mullen had 10 catches for 167 yards and three TDs for the Warriors (5-7) who racked up 588 total yards of offense and ended their season on a winning note, but failed to reach the postseason for the first time in four years.
Brennan was 25-of-37 passing and finished his first season with the Warriors throwing for 4,301 yards and 35 TDs.
Kapa’a Midgets win first game
SAN DIEGO — The Kapa’a Eagles Midget team, after finishing the Kaua’i Pop Warner Association season with an 0-6 record, picked up their first win in San Diego, Saturday, Dec. 3.
Franny Johnson, president of the Kapa’a Pop Warner Association, accompanied the team to the mainland where the Eagles Midget met the Laughlin Wildcats, also 0-6 in their season, at Grossmont High School.
“Both teams scored throughout the game,” Johnson said. “The final score was 31-12 with the Eagles winning their first game after a long season on Kaua’i with no wins!”
Johnson said following the game, the Kaua’i members were all enjoying the cool holiday climate with temperature in the 50’s, but the boys and girls swimming in the hotel pool to help celebrate their victory.
The Eagles return home on Wed., Dec. 7 on American Airlines, but not before they spend some time at Disneyland, Johnson said.
She wanted to thank all the people of Kaua’i who helped with contributions to their various fundraisers to make this trip possible.
“We are so fortunate to be here,” Johnson said.
Holtzman gets 2 out of 3
Mokihana Aquatics coach Orlando “O” Anaya said that Matthew Holtzman, 12, qualified for two more state times at a “Last Chance” meet this weekend in Kona.
Originally, Holtzman was attempting to secure three more state qualifying times before heading to the state meet on Maui with team mate Keenan Anaya later this month.
However, Coach O said that Holtzman had another perfect meet where he improved his times in all three events, but fell just short of the state qualifying in the 200 IM event.
Holtzman qualified in the 100 Back, and the 100 Free events bringing his total state qualifying times count to eight. He had earlier qualified for six events at the Pearl City Invitational during the Thanksgiving weekend.
