Mililani captures first football state championship

In a rematch of the 2013 HHSAA division I football state championship, Mililani survived a shootout with Punahou 53-45.

Mililani quarterback and Cover2 Tommy Kaulukukui offensive player of the year McKenzie Milton threw for 436 yards and 7 touchdowns.

Punahou runningback Wayne Taulapapa fumbled into the Trojan end zone with less than a minute remaining, allowing Mililani to take over possession and run out the clock.

Trojan head coach Rod York and company win their first state championship in school history.

Earlier, in division II, ‘Iolani captured their 8th Koa Trophy by topping top-seeded Lahainaluna 31-14. The loss marks the third for the Lunas to the Raiders in the state championship game. ‘Iolani has now won 8 of the last 11 Koa Trophies in division II.
