Hawaii blasts Utah St., 45-7

By Duane Shimogawa - bio | email

LOGAN, Utah (HawaiiNewsNow) - You wouldn't have to search hard for a player of the game for the Warriors football team.

That's because there were too many to choose from, after their dominating performance on Saturday against Utah St.

Hawaii started out the game with the traditional Haka. Then they'd go to work and I mean work.

Up 14-7 at the half, thanks to a couple of Alex Green touchdowns on the ground, special teams would come up big.

David Graves took a bobbled punt snap in for the score. Hawaii went up 21-7.

Then the WAC's reigning Defensive Player of the Week, Corey Paredes came up with his first of two picks on the game.

On the next play, the Warriors cashed in on the turnover, Green would go 36 yards for the score.

The senior had a career high of 172 yards and four touchdowns on 14 carries. Then at the start of the fourth, Hawaii up 31-7, Salas made a nice one-handed grab for the TD.

The senior had nine catches for 160 yards. Quarterback Bryant Moniz totaled up 392 yards through the air.

The Warriors take it to Utah St., 45-7. Hawaii finished up with a season-high 605 yards on offense and only gave up 181 total yards on defense, the lowest mark in five years.

Hawaii improves to 6-2 and 4-0 in the WAC.

Up next for the Warriors is Idaho at Aloha Stadium this coming Saturday, before that showdown at Boise St.
