HALAWA (HawaiiNewsNow) - It was all over after the coin toss.

The Warrior football team scored early and often. They racked up three touchdowns in the first eleven minutes of play and they'd go on to the 66-7 win on Saturday night.

The fans in attendance at Aloha Stadium got a treat to some offensive firepower by the home team and a little trickery.

Quarterback Bryant Moniz and Alex Green played a little flea flicker, which ended up in the hands of Greg Salas for the 40-yard TD.

Moniz threw six touchdown passes in the first half, including two to both Kealoha Pilares and Salas.

The six scores in a half tied a school record held by Colt Brennan and offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich.

Moniz went 19 of 27 for 395 yards. Salas had seven catches for 130 yards.

"It was nice to go out there and put up big numbers," Salas said. "Just really click on all cylinders and not really make that many mistakes."

Hawaii improves to 2-2 and next up for them is Louisiana Tech on Saturday at Aloha Stadium. Kick-off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
