HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - It was a game that lived up to all the hype.
The #2 Campbell Sabers and #3 Mililani Trojans battled in what was the most entertaining game of the young 2019 season.
Mililani’s 30-24 victory on the road was a back an forth war that came down to the very end.
The Trojans made the first big play of the game as linebacker Asher Pilanca intercepted a tipped pass by Sabers sophomore quarterback Blaine Hipa, and returned it into Saber territory.
Despite starting the drive in the redzone the Trojan offense was unable to capitalize and the Saber defense stood tall to deny Mililani the first points of the game.
The ensuing drive Hipa hit Titus Atimalala on a 21 yard catch and run to break the ice, but time and time again the Trojans leaned on junior running back Malosi Sam.
The junior rushed a daunting 42 times for 257 yards and three touchdowns, sealing the game late with multiple first down runs inside of two minutes.
Junior receiver Titus Atimalala led the way for the Sabers with 179 yards and three touchdowns.
