J: ANOTHER VICTORY IN COURT FOR HAWAII SUPERFERRY AS A MAUI JUDGE EASES UP ON THE TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS FOR CARS AND TRUCKS COMING AND GOING.

JY: IN SPORTS, THE BALDWIN BEARS WON A DECISIVE VICTORY OVER FARRINGTON HIGH TO ADVANCE TO THE STATE DIVISION ONE SEMI-FINALS IN VARSITY FOOTBALL. KALAPANA WILL HAVE HIGHLIGHTS.

J: AND LOVE IS IN THE AIR. HOLLY CHUNG HAS THE DETAILS ON A LOVE-GROWING BENEFIT, ALONG WITH DETAILS ON EVERYTHING FROM WILLIE TO THE NUTCRACKER. THAT AND MUCH MORE THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(intro-FF)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE. HAU'OLI LA HO'OMAIKAI. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US FOR THIS THANKSGIVING WEEK EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING.

JY: AND I'M JULIE Y. AFTER LAST WEEK'S MAJOR VICTORY IN A MAU'S SECOND CIRCUIT COURT, THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY STILL HAD CHALLENGES AHEAD.

(turn to cam)(PiP: Superferry)

ONE OF THOSE CHALLENGES WAS THE HURDLE OF WHAT HAPPENS BEFORE ALAKAI ARRIVES AND AFTER SHE LEAVES EACH DAY. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING BRINGS US THE REPORT FROM COURT.

(take SUPERFERRYpackage)

NOW THAT THE COMINGS AND GOINGS OF THE SUPERFERRY HAVE BECOME FINDINGS OF FACT IN MATTERS OF LAW...WHAT HAPPENS TO VEHICLES COMING AND GOING ON THE SUPERFERRY BECAME THE NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS. STATE DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM WYNHOFF WAS BACK IN SECOND CIRCUIT COURT MONDAY - THIS TIME IN FRONT OF JUDGE JOEL AUGUST - WHO RULED BACK IN AUGUST THAT NO MORE THAN TWO VEHICLES PER MINUTE WOULD BE ALLOWED TO EXIT THE SUPERFERRY GATE.

WHILE THE MOOD WAS CONTENTIOUS, THE JUDGE GAVE THE STATE WHAT IT ASKED FOR...THE TWO-CARS A MINUTE RULL WAS TOSSED. NOW, THE JUDGE SAYS, THE NUMBER OF CARS ALLOWED OUT ONTO PUUNENE AVENUE WILL BE A DECISION OF THREE TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS. THE JUDGE DIDN'T SAY WHO THOSE CONTROLLERS HAD TO BE, BUT HE DID SAY THEY CANNOT BE SUPERFERRY EMPLOYEES. THE CONCENSUS SEEMED TO BE OFF-DUTY MAUI POLICE OFFICERS - WHO WOULD NEED TO BE ON DITY 90 MINUTES BEFORE ALAKAI'S DAILY ARRIVAL UNTIL 90 MINUTES AFTER HER DAILY DEPARTURE - WHICH IS SET TO BEGIN IN JUST DAYS.

THE OTHER ISSUE ADDRESSED AT MONDAY'S HEARING WAS THE RESTRIPING OF THE INTERSECTION AT PUUNENE AND KAAHUMANU AVENUES. THE HASTILY ORDERED ADDITION OF A SECOND LEFT-TURN LANE FROM PUUNENE ONTO KAAHUMANU HAS BEEN THE SOURCE OF DRIVER COMPLAINTS FROM THE OPERATORS OF VEHICLES TRYING TO TURN RIGHT ONTO KAAHUMANU...BUT STUCK BEHIND THE HANDFUL OF CARS THAT CURRENTLY CROSS KAAHUMANU TOWARD KAHULUI HARBOR. MAUI POLICE LT WAYNE IBARRA RECOUNTED THE HEADACHES THAT HAVE BEEN NON-STOP SINCE THE CONES WENT UP AND LANES CHANGED IN AUGUST.

THE VEHCILE COUNT RESTRICTION IS LIFTED, BUT THE LANE CONFIGURATION AND - OH YEAH - THE APPEALS OF THE ENTIRE LEGAL STANDING OF THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF ACT TWO ARE YET TO BE DECIDED...AND A COURT DATE HAS BEEN SET FOR ONE OF THOSE ISSUES FOR NEXT FEBRUARY. REPORTING FROM KAHULUI FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(BARGE DAMAGE) (PiP - BARGE DAMAGE)

J: SOME MIGHT SAY ITS A SIGN OF HO'OPA'I - OR REVENGE. BUT LAST WEDNESDAY - WITHIN AN HOUR OR SO OF THE SECOND CIRCUIT COURT DECISION TO ALLOW THE SUPERFERRY TO SAIL, IT'S LOADING BARGE TORE LOSE FROM ITS MOORINGS AT KAHULUI HARBOR. TWO HARBOR TUGS HELPED CAPTURE THE

(vo) THE BARGE IS TEMPORARILY MOORED AT PIER TWO-B RATHER THAN AT IT'S USUAL SPOT AT PIER 2-C. FROM A DISTANCE THE DAMAGE IS HARD TO SPOT, BUT THIS DIGITALLY ZOOMED IMAGE SHOWS THE DENTED RUBBER BUMPER PLATE THAT REPEATEDLY SLAMMED INTO THE PIER UNDER THE STRAIN CREATED BY SWELLS OF THREE TO FIVE FEET ENTERING KAHULUI HARBOR FROM THE NORTH LAST WEDNESDAY.

DAMAGE WAS ALSO DONE TO THE PIER ITSELF AS THE BOLLARD - THE HUGE STEEL MOORING STANCHION AT THE VERY CORNER OF THE PIER - WAS RIPPED FROM IT'S FOUNDATION AND SITS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HARBOR. ON SATURDAY, WORKERS WERE PREPARING THE SPOT WHERE THE NEW BOLLARD - SITTING BY ON A PALATE - WOULD BE INSTALLED.

(on-cam) THERE WAS NO OFFICIAL WORD ON WHEN REPAIRS WOULD BE COMPLETE, BUT NO ONE AT HAWAII SUPERFERRY EXPRESSED CONCERN THAT THE PLANNED DECEMBER FIRST SERVICE RESUMPTION WOULD BE FURTHER DELAYED. BUT ONE HARBOR OFFICIAL TOLD MAUI TV NEWS THAT THE BARGE'S VULNERABILITY TO THE MODERATE SWELL UNDERSCORES WHY MORE VESSELS DON'T MOOR THERE. MORE STABLE MOORING HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED FOR THE END OF PIER TWO-C, BUT THE PLAN WOULD CALL FOR PILE-DRIVING NEWS BEAMS INTO THE SEA-BED - AN PLAN THAT WOULD MOST LIKE REQUIRE AN ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW.

(oil spill)(PiP_OilBoom)

JY: NO MORE THAN A PINHOLE. THAT WHAT MAUI ELECTRIC COMPANY SAYS CAUSED THE LEAK OF ABOUT 300 GALLONS OF HEAVY INDUSTRIAL FUEL OIL INTO KAHULUI HARBOR EARLIER THIS MONTH.

(vo) MECO CONFIRMED THAT IT WAS IN AN ABANDONED PIPELINE AT THE BASE OF PIER ONE THAT BEGAN LEAKING LATE IN THE EVENING OF NOVEMBER 6TH. MEMBERS OF THE CLEAN ISLANDS COUNCIL, PENCO AND MECO STAFF SURROUNDED THE SPILL BY 2 O'CLOCK THE NEXT MORNING AND THE MOP-UP BEGAN. THE TUGBOAT DANIEL S. AKAKA WAS BROUGHT IN TO SIPHON AND FLUSH THE OILY WATER INTO THE CONTAINED AREA. AFTER TWO DAYS OF WORK, THE COAST GUARD DEEMED THE AREA CLEAN ENOUGH FOR THE PRIDE OF HAWAII CRUISE SHIP TO DOCK.

(on-cam) OF COURSE, AS WE KNOW, THAT CRUISE SHIP WAS THE ONE STRICKEN WITH NORVOVIRUS THAT SICKENED MORE THAN 200 PASSENGERS AND CREWMEMBERS. ALL IN ALL, IT WAS NOT THE BEST COUPLE OF WEEKS FOR LIFE AROUND KAHULUI HARBOR.

(new hwy Intersecion) (PiP-TRAFFIC)

J: SPEAKING OF "AROUND," GETTING AROUND KIHEI MAY GET EASIER SOME TIME SOON...BUT NOT RIGHT NOW. THE CONNECTION OF THE MOKULELE AND PI'ILANI HIGHWAYS WAS OPENED TO TRAFFIC MONDAY AND A LOT OF PEOPLE SLOWED DOWN TO TAKE A LOOK.

(VO) MOSTLY BECAUSE THEY HAD NO CHOICE. THE WIDENING PROJECT HAS A VERY NARROW OUTLOOK RIGHT NOW, WHERE NORTHBOUND TRAFFIC IS ROUTED FROM TWO LANES TO ONE BEFORE ENTERING THE NEW KAHULUI-BOUND CONNECTION. AND IF YOU'RE HEADING TO LAHAINA, YOU GET TO WEAVE DOWN OHUKAI STREET AND SOUTH KIHEI ROAD TO NORTH KIHEI ROAD. SOUTHBOUND, IT'S BEEN JUST ONE-LANE AFTER THE HUMANE SOCIETY ANYWAY, SO THE ONLY CHANGE IS MISSING THE LIGHT AT THE OLD INTERSECTION.

STATE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION OFFICIALS SAY IT WILL STILL BE SEVERAL MONTHS BEFORE ALL FOUR LANES OF THE MERGED HIGHWAYS WILL BE COMPLETE.

(CON'T VO) (Kihei HS)

AND DOWN THE ROAD ABOUT A MILE FROM THE NEW HIGHWAY JUNCTION WILL BE THE SITE OF THE NEW KIHEI HIGHSCHOOL. THE 50-ACRE PARCEL STRADDLES LAND OWNED BY KAONOULU RANCH AND HALEAKALA RANCH. THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT MONDAY. FROM A LIST OF ELEVENT, SEVEN FINALISTS WERE NARROWED TO THREE. LONGTIMERS WILL RECOGNIZE THE OLD FRAME OF A SIGN POSTED MORE THAN A DECADE AGO THAT READ "FUTURE HOME OF KIHEI HIGH SCHOOL."

THE SITE WAS SELECTED BECAUSE OF ITS PROXIMITY TO EXISTING DEVELOPMENT, THE GENTLE SLOPING TERRAIN, VEHICLE AND PEDESTRIAN ACCESS, AVAILABILITY OF UTILITIES,. SAFETY AND CLIMATE. IF PLANS REMAIN ON TRACK, CONSTRUCTION SHOULD BEGIN NEXT YEAR AND THE FIRST CLASSES WOULD COMMENCE IN THE FALL OF 2011.


(Tease for B-Block)(2-shot)

J: COMING UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, SERVICE ABOVE SELF. ROTARY ON MAUI CELEBRATES 70 YEARS AND THEY WERE JOINED BY A VERY DISTINGUISHED GROUP OF GUESTS.

JY: AND IT WAS A VERY SIZABLE PILE OF GARBAGE THAT GREETED VOLUNTEERS FOR THE ANNUAL "HOLIDAY GIFT TO MAUI NUI" CLEANUP LAST WEEKEND. WE'LL TAKE YOU TO ONE OF THE TRASHIEST PLACES ON MAUI.

J: AND WE'LL TAKE YOU TO ONE OF THE NEWEST PLACES ON MAUI WHERE THE SURF IS ALWAYS UP - GUARANTEED. THAT AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.
(break)

(b block)

(ROTARY)(PiP-rotarylogo)

J: "SERVICE ABOVE SELF." IT’S NOT ONLY A NOBLE-SOUNDING IDEAL...IT'S BEEN A WAY OF LIFE FOR THE ROTARY CLUB OF MAUI FOR 70 YEARS. SATURDAY NIGHT ON THE SLOPES OF KAHALAWAI, MORE THAN 150 MEMBERS CAME TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE.

(VO) THE KING KAMEHAMEHA GOLF CLUB WAS THE SITE OF A LAVISH DINNER PARTY TO MARK THE SEVEN DECADES OF ROTARY ON MAUI. IN ATTENDANCE WAS THE WIFE OF ONE OF MAUI ROTARY'S FIRST CHARTER MEMBERS. ALSO IN ATTENDANCE WAS THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR - BUT THE GUESTS OF HONOR FOR THE EVENING WERE MEMBERS OF MAUI'S SISTER ROTARY CLUB IN SENDAI JAPAN. SEVERAL DISTINGUISHED LEADERS OF BUSINESS AND GOVERNMENT ADDRESSED THE CROWD SATURDAY NIGHT AND...EVENTUALLY...THEY GOT TO ENJOY DINNER.

(ON-CAM) TO LIST THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF MAUI'S EIGHT ROTARY CLUBS - AS WELL AS ROTARY INTERNATIONAL - WOULD TAKE LONGER THAN THIS NEWSCAST WOULD ALLOW. BUT JUST TO GIVE YOU A FEW EXAMPLES, ROTARY HELPED CURE POLIO ACROSS THE GLOBE, THEY BROUGHT THE BOY SCOUTS TO MAUI, THEY STARTED THE EASTER SEALS WORLDWIDE CHARITY AND THEY DISTRIBUTE ANTI-BACTERIAL HEALTH AND HYGIENE KITS TO MAUI'S HOMELESS.

(Da Rush)(PiP-Rush-wave)

JY: WITH WINTER COME THE BIG WAVES TO MAUI'S NORTH SHORE. ONLY THE STRONGEST AND BRAVEST SURFERS DARE VENTURE OUT. IN THE SUMMER, SURF ON THE SOUTH AND WEST SHORES CAN BE FUN - BUT UNPREDICTABLE. WELL, NOW THERE'S A PLACE ON MAUI WHERE THE SURF IS ALWAYS UP. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING INTRODUCES US TO 'DA RUSH.

(Da Rush-pkg)

(ON CAM TAG) A LITTLE LATER ON THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS, WE'LL SHOW YOU MORE OF THE FUN FLO-RIDERS ARE HAVING AT 'DA RUSH.

(trash pickup)(PiP-trashbirds)

J: NEAR THE CENTRAL MAUI LANDFILL THERE IS A PARTICULAR SPECIES OF BIRD THAT ROOSTS IN THE TREES. BUT THIS IS A BIRD NO BIRDWATCHER CARES TO SEE.

(vo) MANU OPALA, TRASH BIRDS - THAT'S THE NAME GIVEN TO THE PLASTIC BAGS THAT CLING TO TREE BRANCHES AFTER BLOWING OUT OF THE NEARBY LANDFILL. WHILE THE HAWAII STATE LEGISLATURE CONSIDERS OUTLAWING PLASTIC SHOPPING BAGS, THEY'LL LIKELY BLOW IN THE BREEZE FOR A LONG TIME TO COME. MEANWHILE UP THE HILL, COMMUNITY CLEANUP DAY'S ANNUAL HOLIDAY GIFT TO MAUI NUI CLEANUP EFFORT BROUGHT TOGETHER THIS GROUP OF VOLUNTEERS TO A PARTICULARLY TRASHY SPOT - DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO THE LANDFILL. EIGHT VOLUNTEERS, INCLUDING MEMBERS OF KIHEI CUB SCOUT PACK 22, WHO WERE WORKING ON THEIR COMMUNITY SERVICE MERIT BADGES, LOADED 65 BAGS FULL OF OPALA. THIS WAS ONE OF A DOZEN HOT SPOTS FOR GARBAGE TARGETED IN THE LATEST COMMUNITY WORK DAY CLEAN UP PROJECT. MAHALO TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED.

(Kihei Recycling)(PiP-KiheiRecycleCntr)

JY: GOOD NEWS FOR GREEN-MINDED SOUTH MAUI RESIDENTS. THE KIHEI RECYCLING CENTER IS BACK OPEN FOR BUSINESS...AT LEAST IN PART.

(vo) A TEMPORARY SITE FOR RECYCLING OF NON HI-FIVE ITEMS IS OPENING THIS WEEK AT THE INTERSECTION OF LILOA AND HALEKUAI STREETS. THE BIG GREEN BINS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN PLACE THIS WEEK. THERE YOU CAN DROP-OFF YOUR CARDBOARD, NEWSPAPERS, GLASS BOTTLES, PLASTIC BOTTLES WITH NECKS AND PLASTIC BAGS - KNOTTED PLEASE.

(on-cam) A PERMANENT SITE ON WELAKAHAO ROAD IS EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETE SOME TIME EARLY NEXT YEAR, UNTIL THEN, REDEEMABLE BOTTLES AND CANS CAN STILL BE TAKEN TO THE REVERSE VENDING MACHINE SITE BEHIND THE SALVATION ARMY BUILDING IN KIHEI ON WEEKDAYS - OR TO MAUI DISPOSAL'S MOBILE SITE IN THE HOPE CHAPEL PARKING LOT WEDNESDAYS THROUGH SATURDAY BETWEEN 9 A.M. AND 3 P.M.

(CHRISTMAS TREES) (PiP-ChristmasCard-HI Style)

J: THIS IS THE WEEKEND A LOT OF PEOPLE ON MAUI BEGIN TO HEAD OUT TO GET THEIR CHRISTMAS TREE. THIS YEAR, THERE'S GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS. THE BAD NEWS IS THAT HAWAII DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE INSPECTORS FOUND ALIEN YELLOW JACKETS IN THREE CONTAINER LOADS OF CHRISTMAS TREES FROM OREGON THIS WEEK. THEY PLAN TO INSPECT MORE THAN 30,000 IMPORTED TREES FOR THE BUGS - AND THAT MEANS SHIPMENTS TO THE NEIGHBOR ISLANDS WILL BE DELAYED.

THE GOOD NEWS: ACCORDING TO OREGON TREE GROWERS, BECAUSE OF A PARTICULARLY WET FALL SEASON, THIS YEAR'S CROP OF CHRISTMAS TREES IS EXPECTED TO BE ONE OF THE BEST EVER.

(Toss to C-BlocK)(2-Shot)

J: COMING UP NEXT IN SPORTS A STEP CLOSER TO ALOHA! THE BALDWIN BEARS CELEBRATE AN IMPRESSIVE WIN THE STATE FOOTBALL - ROUND ONE. NEXT STOP, ALOHA STADIUM KALAPANA HAS HIGHLIGHTS UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

JY: AND RIGHT AFTER THAT, HOLLY CHUNG HAS THE DETAILS ON ALOHA AS WELL...IN A BENEFIT FOR THE BAILEY HOUSE. THAT, AND LOTS MORE FUN THINGS TO SEE AND DO UP NEXT IN COMING ATTRACTIONS WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

(break)

(sports) (PiP-Sports)

K: ALOHA MEANS HELLO...GOODBYE...I LOVE YOU...AND IT MEANS THE BEARS ARE MOVIN’ ON UP! ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS I'M KALAPANA.

THE BALDWIN BEARS' IMPRESSIVE WIN OVER THE FARRINGTON GOVERNORS IN SATURDAY NIGHT'S FIRST ROUND OF THE STATE DIVISION ONE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS MEANS THEY'LL BE HEADING TO ALOHA STADIUM ON NOVEMBER 30TH. THAT'S WHEN THEY'LL FACE NUMBER TWO SEED LEILEHUA IN THE SEMI-FINALS OF THE HAWAII HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION DIVISION ONE STATE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS.

(vo) SATURDAY NIGHT AT WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM, THE FIRST QUARTER BELONGED TO THE BEARS AS THEY SCORE TWO QUICK TOUCHDOWNS AND HELD THE GOVERNORS SCORELESS. MOVING TO THE SECOND QUARTER NOW, THAT’S SENIOR QUARTERBACK JORDAN HELLE WARMING UP TO TRY TO THROW A FEW MORE TOUCHDOWN PASSES, WHILE FARRINGTON QB ALEFOSIU IU - A LEFTY - FINDS DAYTON KEALOHA FOR EIGHT YARDS. AND WHILE THESE YOUNG LADIES MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR ACTUAL BEARS, THE GOVERNORS ARE LOOKING TO GAIN SOME GROUND. HERE IT'S IU ON A QUARTERBACK KEEPER FOR A NICE GAIN AND A FIRST DOWN - FINALLY STOPPED BY BALDWIN'S KAINALU GARSO. IMPRESSIVE DRIVE FOR THE GOVERNORS - HERE IU'S ROCKET IS GRABBED BY WIDE RECEIVER ANU ISUMU FOR ANOTHER FIRST DOWN. THEN FARRINGTON'S MELVYN RAMOS GOES TO WORK - AROUND THE LEFT SIDE DOWN TO THE TWO BEFORE HE'S DRAGGED DOWN BY GANNON PACUBAS. GOVERNORS TRY RAMOS 'ROUND THE RIGHT. BUT BALDWIN'S KALEO FRETERIA SAYS NO! RAMOS UP THE MIDDLE...AND THE GOVERNORS FINALLY PUNCH IT IN...MUCH TO THE DELIGHT OF THE SIZABLE “GUBERNATORIAL SECTION” IN THE VISITOR'S STANDS.

BEARS ON THEIR OWN 40 AFTER THE KICKOFF AND THE GOVERNORS STUFF CHANSI BOLOSAN. HELLE TAKES TO THE AIR AND LOBS A BOMB HALF-A-FIELD LONG...AND THERE'S KALEI KAMAHELE ALL THE WAY DOWN AT THE SEVEN.

FIRST AND GOAL AND THE GOVERNORS STOP BOLOSAN AGAIN. HELE THROUGH THE AIR...BUT OUT OF REACH FOR KAMAHELE. THIRD AND GOAL AND THE EXTREMELY RELIABLE HELLE TO CABACUNGAN CONNECTION DOES IT AGAIN. TOUCHDOWN! THAT COMBINATION WAS TOO MUCH FOR THE GOVERNORS. HELLE AND CABACUNGAN CONNECTED THREE TIMES...FOR A TOTAL OF 66 YARDS...AND ALL THREE RESULTED IN TOUCHDOWNS. THE EXTRA POINT MISSED, BUT BALDWIN MAKES UP FOR IT WITH EXCELLENT KICKOFF COVERAGE, FORCING THE GOVERNORS ALL THE WAY BACK TO THEIR TWO YARD LINE. BEARS HELD 'EM AND WHEN FOURTH DOWN CAME AROUND, CABACUNGAN LOOKED TO GIVE BALDWIN EXCELLENT FIELD POSITION. BUT HE DID BETTER THAN THAT. HE RIPPED THROUGH THE RIGHT SIDE AND LEAPED OVER HIS OWN PLAYER FOR A SCORE...BUT IT WAS ALL FOR NAUGHT. THERE WAS NOT ONE, BUT TWO ILLEGAL BLOCKS FROM BEHIND CALLED ON THE BEARS DURING THE RUNBACK. SEE IT AGAIN IN SLOW MOTION, WHILE SKYLER LOOKS FAST EVEN IN SLO-MO, HERE COMES FOUL NUMBER ONE. CLANG! AND JUST AS THE LAUNDRY SHOWS UP HERE COMES NUMBER TWO. GOOD NIGHT! REF HAS TO USE HIS HAT TO CALL THAT ONE. BUMMER (or words to that effect).

BEARS BACK ON THE FARRINGTON 35 AND HELLE LOOKS FOR BIG CHASE NAKAMURA...BUT SO DOES THE GOVERNORS' KALEI STEVENS...A LITTLE EARLIER THAN HE SHOULD. THE PASS INTERFERENCE PENALTY PUTS THE BEARS ON THE FARRINGTON NINE YARD LINE. HALF BACK OPTION HERE, HELLE TO CABACUNGAN WHO LAUNCHES ONE TOWARD KAMAHELE...BUT GOVERNOR JAMES SMITH INTERCEPTS AND RUMBLES BACK ALL THE WAY OUT TO THE 30 YARD LINE. BOTH TEAMS TRADED POSSESSIONS BEFORE THE END OF THE QUARTER...WITH 20-7 THE SCORE AT THE HALF.

AND A HALF-MOON SMILED DOWN ON THE BEARS SATURDAY NIGHT AS THEY WENT ON TO WIN IT, 26 TO 14 TO ADVANCE TO THE STATE DIVISION I SEMI-FINAL GAME AGAINST NUMBER TWO SEEDED LEILEHUA NEXT SATURDAY AT ALOHA STADIUM. GO BEARS!

(on-cam) THIS WEEKEND THE H-H-S-A-A DIVISION TWO SEMI-FINAL GAME FEATURES THE M-I-L'S TOP DEFENSIVE TEAM, LAHAINALUNA, AGAINST KAIMUKI. THE BULLDOGS FINISHED UNDEFEATED IN THE OAHU INTERSCHOLASTIC ASSOCIATION WHITE DIVISION, THEN WENT ON TO DEFEAT KAMEHAMEHA HAWAII 22 -ZIP IN THE TOURNAMENT QUARTERFINALS LAST WEEKEND ON THE BIG ISLAND. WE'LL HAVE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE LUNAS GAME FOR YOU NEXT WEEK. THE WINNER WILL MOVE TO THE SEASON FINALE NOVEMBER 30TH AT ALOHA STADIUM AGAINST EITHER IOLANI OR KAUAI.
