Mililani rolls despite rain as storms delay, postpone other games

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

On a soggy evening in Central Oahu, Mililani running back Vae Malepeai's night started with a first quarter fumble of a wet football, ending a Trojan drive already deep in Campbell territory.

By the time Malepeai's night was over, he had more than made up for the mistake. 

The state's top running back prospect finished Saturday's match-up against the Campbell Sabers with five total touchdowns, including four on the ground. The fifth touchdown, an 18-yard pass from McKenzie Milton, came roughly six minutes into the third quarter as the Trojans wrapped up a 49-21 win over the Sabers.

Bouts of severe weather proved challenging for both teams. Each committed turnovers in the first quarter, and the Trojans finished the game having committed at least 20 penalties.

Still, a stellar night from Malepeai and contributions from fellow all-state performers Milton and receiver Kala Timoteo proved too much for both Campbell and the rain. The Trojans host Kapolei next week before traveling to Las Vegas to play Liberty High School. 

Severe weather also caused delays at each of the three other games on the OIA schedule; match-ups between Pearl City and Waialua and Kapolei and Kailua were postponed until later dates, and Radford's game against Roosevelt was called early because of the weather after the Rams raced out to a 43-0 lead at halftime.

SB 2322 looks to eliminate the ten year statute of limitations on manslaughter cases. The bill refers to the ten year statute of limitations as "a potential loophole in Hawaii's criminal justice system."  In 2016, Jaylin Kema ple...
