HALAWA (HawaiiNewsNow) - It would be safe to say that if the rest of the country didn't know how good Kealoha Pilares is, then let Saturday night be their final warning.

The Warrior receiver caught 18 balls for 217 yards and two TD's.

The 18 catches is the most-ever in one game for a Hawaii player, but the Warriors had it going on the ground as well.

Chizzy Dimude carved his way through the bulldog defense for a 27-yard score. Then it's Moniz to Pilares for a seven-yard TD. Hawaii up 17-0 at that point.

But they'd do it on "D" as well. Late in the first, Mana Silva would track a Bulldog pass down and intercept it. It would be his first of two interceptions on the night.

Then the final score of the night, turned out to be one of the nicest plays of the game, as Greg Salas broke a few tackles on his way to the 29-yard TD.

Hawaii tames the bulldogs, 41 to 21 and moves to 3-2 on the year, 1-0 in WAC play. Moniz threw for four touchdowns and 532 yards. Up next is Fresno State in California on Saturday.
