(intro-FF)

Open

J: ALOHA EVERYONE. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING.

HC: AND I'M HOLLY CHUNG. JUYLIE Y HAS THE WEEK OFF.

(Storm of '07 - Pkg) THIS IS JEFF KING. FIRST THE RAIN STARTED...THEN STARTED COMING HARDER. THEN CAME THE WIND. THEN CAME RAINS THAT HAVEN'T BEEN WITNESSED IN YEARS...PERHAPS DECADES. THE STORM OF '07 WALLOPED THE ENTIRE STATE OF HAWAII - BUT NOWEHERE WAS IT FELT AS SEVERELY AS IT WAS ON MAUI.

THE STORM'S INITIAL BLAST WEDNESDAY MORNING KNOCKED OUT POWER TO MOST OF THE ISLAND. IN SOUTH MAUI, AS I TRIED TO TRAVEL NORTH ON SOUTH KIHEI ROAD, I WAS MET WITH REVERSING TRUCKS NEAR KAONOULU STREET. WHEN THEY GOT OUT OF THE WAY, I SAW WHY. MOST OF A TREE HAD COME DOWN THE STREET...AND PART OF ANOTHER PASSED IT BY. I TURNED AROUND TOO, ONLY TO BE CUT OFF IN THE OTHER DIRECTION BY FLOODING FROM THE SOUTH.

WHAT PERHAPS A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T KNOW IS THAT MANY OF THE STREETS THAT RUN MAUKA-MAKAI ON MAUI ARE NAMED FOR THE GULCHES THEY REPLACE. ON WEDNESDAY, THE WAIPUILANI, KAONOLULU AND - WHERE I GOT STRANDED - THE KULANIHAKOI GULCH WAS A RIVER. A FEW HARDY SOULS BRAVED THE DEPTHS AND THE ONCOMING DEBRIS. SOME MADE IT...SOME DIDN'T.

ALONG POLIPOLI ROAD, THE STREAM GREW AND - AS OUR VIDEOGRAPHER APPROACHED THE GULCH...THE SIGHTS AND SOUND SAY IT ALL. (NAT)

AS THE RIVERS EMPTIED INTO THE SEA, THE OCEAN ITSELF THREW A FIT...AS WELL AS THIS RUNABOUT - THAT WAS TORN FROM IT'S MOORNING AT MAALAEA HARBOR AND BOBBED FOUR MILES DOWN THE COAST TO THE ROCKS AT COVE PARK.

DAMAGE WAS EVERYWHERE ACROSS MAUI AS RAIN TOTALS, ALONG WITH MUD AND DEBRIS MOUNTED

WHEN THE SKY BROKE - FOR JUST A WHILE - WE GOT A GLIMPSE OF WHAT WAS LEFT NEHIND. A CAR IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME IN KIHEI WAS THE TARGET OF A KIAWE TREE THAT SAGGED AND FELL UNDER THE BURDEN OF MONSTER RAIN AND WINDS. STANDING LAKES IN PARKING LOTS CLOSED ALL SOUTH MAUI PARKS...AND SEVERE EROSION TOOK A HEAVY TOLL AT KAMAOLE PARK TWO AS THE LIFEGUARD TOWER TOPPLED, A MATURE HALA TREE MET ITS DEMISE AND - NOT SURPRISNGLY, THE BEACH WAS CLOSED.

THEN THERE WAS UPCOUNTRY. WHEN THE TORRENT OF WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY FINALLY SUBSIDED, IT GAVE A CHANCE TO LOOK THE OTHER DIRECTION, AND THIS IS WHAT WE SAW. THE FOOTING OF A CARPORT WERE WASHED AWAY, BRINGING DOWN THE ROOF - CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS AND ALL ON TOP OF THE FAMILY CAR. AND AT THE BEND IN THE GULCH, A WALL OF WATER AND DEBRIS TOOK OUT A BEDROOM OF THIS HOME ALONG POLIPOLI ROAD. ELSEWHERE UPCOUNTRY, AS SWOLEN GULCHES BECAME RIVERS AGAIN AND MOSTER RAIN SHAFTS BECAME WATERFALLS, LIFE BEGAN TO RETURN TO NORMAL.

ONE HOUSE MOVED A HUNDRED FEET FROM ITS FOUNDATION. IN ALL FIVE HOMES IN HAWAIIAN HOMELANDS WERE SEVERELY DAMAGED - ALONG WITH THESE TWO IN POLIPOLI. DOWNCOUNTRY, WHERE MUCH OF THE DEBRIS WOUND UP, CLEANUP BEGINS. THE RED CROSS SET UP IN KIHEI TO DISTRIBUTE FREE EMERGENCY CLEANING SUPPLIES - PROVIDED BY WAL MART AND FOOD FROM CAFE LA PLAGE.

THE CLEANUP - WILL BE HUGE - AND THAT'S THE TOP STORY FOR NEXT WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS. REPORTING FROM KIHEI, I'M JEFF KING.

(JULIE Y. WITH SUPERRY SERVICE OFFICIAL BEGINNING TODAY, PROTESTERS HAVE ALREADY HAD AN EARLY START.

(Superferry Protest)(PiP: Superferry)

HC: A GROUP OF PROTESTERS FROM EAST MAUI - WHERE LIFE IS USUALLY PEACEFUL AND QUIET, CAME TO KAHULUI TO BE SURE THEIR MESSAGE WAS LOUD AND CLEAR. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING HAS THE STORY.

(take SUPERFERRY PROTEST package) THE STORMY SKIES HAD NOT YET COVERED MAUI - BUT ON THE HORIZON THERE WAS THUNDER RUMBLING. THE EASTERN HORIZON. A GROUP CALLING THEMSELVES THE EASTSIDE HUI CAME TO KAHULUI TO SAY 'A'OLE SUPERFERRY. EVEN THOUGH THE ALAKAI'S START DATE HAD BEEN POSTPONED, THEY WENT AHEAD WITH THEIR PROTEST - ORGNIZED THIS AS AN EDUCATIONAL EVENT - TO LET PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO PROTEST...THEY KNOW THE RULES - AND TO RAISE AWARENESS THAT THERE IS NO STATE ENFORCEMENT OUT AT KEANAE AND BEYOND TO PROTECT THE PRECIOUS RESOURCES LOCALS HAVE NURTURED FOR GENERATIONS.

Steven Ho'okano, East Side Hui

SH01: "We are the people that use these resources, hunting and fishing, providing food for our families and we care for the land."

Kau'i Kanakaole, East Side Hui

KK01: "I feel like I'm the voice of the aina. Somebody needs to speak up for it because what the Superferry brings is going to heavily impact out livelihood and it's going to heavily impact our environment."

SHE SAYS THE EASTSIDE HUI HAS BEEN TOGETHER BETWEEN TWO AND THREE YEARS. THE ORGANIZATION WAS FORMED BECAUSE MANY THERE FELT THEY WEREN'T BEING HEARD. AND THEY SEE SUPERFERRY LIKE SOMETHING OF A WATER-BASED STEAM ROLLER.

KK03: "Already we have people coming to the east side to hunt and fish and gather. And we see the Superferry as just another for people to bring their cars and trucks and come to the east side and 'open our ice box and take what they want' and leave. And we're left to deal with the effects of that. So we need to stand up and say something about that."

SAY IT THEY DID...WITH THE BLOWING OF THE PU, AN ONGOING CHANT. A MARCH DOWN KAAHUMAN AVENUE TO A STOP DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM SUPERFERRY'S MAUI STAGING AREA. CARS HONKED. ORGANIZERS SAY THEY'LL BE BACK WHEN THE SUPERFERRY DOES - IN FACT - RETURN TO KAHULUI. THEY SAY THEIR GOAL IS TO REMAIN PEACEFUL, YES, BUT STIL KU'E - TO RESIST.

SH01-b: "We're just informing because it's about respect. You know, Aloha Aina. We love everybody. This isn't about animosity or nothing. We're just here to voice our mana'o and what's going on."

REPORTING FROM KAHULUI FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(on-cam tag) MAUI TV NEWS WILL HAVE COMPLETE COVERAGE OF THE ALAKAI'S FIRST OFFICIAL VISIT - AND FIRST OFFICIAL PROTEST IN NEXT WEEK'S EDITION. MEANWHILE, FOR BREAKING NEWS REPORTS ON THE SUPERFERRY'S RETURN TO KAHULUI, VISIT OUR WEBSITE AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO BREAKING NEWS.

(Superferry Barge)) (PiP - Barge)

J: MEANWHILE, IT LOOKS A LITTLE LIKE THE RIGHT HAND DOESN'T SEEM TO KNOW WHAT THE LEFT HAND IS DOING. HAWAII SUPERFERRY OFFICIALS ANNOUNCED SUNDAY NIGHT THAT THE ALAKAI WOULD MAKE A PRACTICE RUN TO KAHULUI TUESDAY MORNING, TO TRAIN STAFF AND TO BE SURE THE BARGE WAS BACK IN PLACE AND READY FOR SERVICE. THE ONLY PROBLEM WAS - THEY NEGLECTED TO TELL ANYONE IN CHARGE AT KAHULUI HARBOR.

vo: AS IT TURNED OUT, THAT DIDN'T MATTER. THE SAME STORM THAT WAS BREWING BOTH NORTH AND SOUTH OF MAUI, HAD ALREADY BEGUN TO SEND LARGE SWELLS INTO KAHULUI HARBOR. AND WHILE SURFERS ENJOYED THE BREAK, THE OCEAN'S ACTION WAS TOO MUCH FOR THE BARGE. IN FACT, BOTH IT AND THE PRIDE OF HAWAII HAD TO BE REIGNED IN BY TUG BOATS AFTER MORRING LINES SNAPPED UNDERTHE ACTION OF THE SWELLS.

(on-cam) STATE HARBORS DIRECTOR MIKE FORMBY SAYS HE REMAINS CONVINCED THAT SUPERFERRY'S BARGE CAN HANDLE THE SWELLS AT PIER 2-C AND WOULD NOT HAVE BROKEN LOOSE IF IT HAD BEEN TETHERED WITH ROPES - OR, WHAT HE TERMS AS "SOFT LINES," INSTEAD OF CABLES AND CHAINS.

(CUTTER)(PiP_CUTTER)

HC: IF YOU'RE AMONG THE THOUSANDS OF MAUI COMMUTERS WHO DRIVE TOWNBOUND ON KAHLUI BEACH ROAD EACH DAY - OR UP AND DOWN KA'AHUMANU AVENUE, DID YOU NOTICE LAST WEEK AS - SLOWLY - THERE WERE FEWER AND FEWER CARS AT THE DEALERSHIP ON THE CORNER?

(vo) WITHOUT SO MUCH AS A PEEP, CUTTER MAUI IMPORTS CLOSED ITS DOORS LAST FRIDAY. AND JUST AS SECRETIVE AS THAT WAS - SO IS ANY OFFICIAL WORD FROM THEIR PARENT COMPANY, CUTTER FAMILY AUTO CENTERS. REPEATED ATTEMPTS BY MAUI TV NEWS TO REACH FAMILY SPOKESMAN NICK CUTTER WERE MET WITH NO RESPONSE.

ACCORDING TO A PUBLISHED REPORT BY CHRIS HAMILTON OF THE MAUI NEWS, CUTTER MAUI EMPLOEES WERE TOLD OF THE PENDING CLOSURE EARLY LAST WEEK, AND THAT THEY WOULD RECEIVE SMALL SEVERANCE PACKAGES. CUTTER'S LINES HAD BEEN REDUCED A MONTH EARLIER TO JUST VOLKSWAGEN, MITSUBISHI AND HYUNDAI. THE CUTTER MAZDA DEALERSHIP HAD BEEN TAKEN OVER BY JIM FALK, OWNER OF VALLEY ISLE MOTORS.

(ON-CAM) ACCORDING TO THE COMPANY'S WEB SITE, THE CUTTER FAMILY AUTO CENTERS HAVE - OR AT LEAST HAD - 10 DEALERSHIPS ACROSS THE STATE, WITH THOUSANDS OF CARS IN THEIR INVENTORY AND A MORE THAN A DOZEN DIFFERENT CAR AND TRUCK BRANDS, INCLUDING FORD, CHEVY, VOLKSWAGEN AND JEEP.

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

J: COMING UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, STOP AIDS - KEEP THE PROMISE. WE'LL TAKE YOU TO THE SOLEMN CELEBRATION OF WORLD AIDS DAY WHEN WE COME BACK.

HC: AND IF YOU HAVEN'T COMPLETELY GOTTEN INTO THE HOLIDAY MOOD FOR CELEBRATING AND GIVING, WE'LL HAVE A COUPLE OF IDEAS FOR YOU.

J: AND WIND, RAIN AND MONSTER SURF POUNDED MAUI THIS WEEK. WE'LL GIVE YOU SOME OF THE TOTALS WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

(b block)

(World Aids Day) (PiP-AidsRibbon)

J: AIDS. THERE'S NO CURE FOR IT. AND EVEN THOUGH TREATMENT OPTIONS ARE MAKING LIFE MORE MANAGEABLE FOR THE MILLIONS WHO SUFFER FROM AIDS AND HIV, THERE IS STILL MUCH MORE WORK TO ACCOMPLISH. THE MAUI AIDS FOUNDATION SERVES ABOUT A HUNDRED AND FIFTY MEN AND WOMEN ACROSS THE COUNTY WHO ARE UNINSURED OR UNDERINSURED.

(vo) WORLD AIDS DAY IS SET ASIDE EACH YEAR TO PAUSE, REFLECT AND HOPE. THIS YEAR THE EVENT WAS HELD AT THE KAHILI GOLF COURSE IN WAIKAPU.

(SOT: Keith Wolter, Executive Director, Maui AIDS Foundation "KW01: "We will be commemorating those who died. And dedicating ourselves to carry on the fight in the future - to carry on the fight against AIDS."

ONE OF THE CONTINUING MYTHS ABOUT AIDS IS THAT IT IS PREDOMINANTLY TRANSMITTED BETWEEN PEOPLE OF THE SAME SEX. THE FACT IS THAT 95 PERCENT OF THE WPR;D'S CASES OF AIDS ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE HETEROSEXUAL. THE MAUI DIRECTOR ADDRESSED THE FOUNDATIONS CONCERN LOCALLY.

KW03: "We're concerned about people who are young. We're concerned abiout women. And we're concerned about people of color, because that is where the epidemic is shifting, nationally, and in the state of Hawaii and it's moving that way on Maui."

THERE WERE MELE, OLI AND PULE AND THERE WAS MUSIC - THEN, ONE BY ONE, ATTENDEES PLACED ROSES IN MEMORIES OF THOSE THEY'VE KNOWN WHO HAVE SUCCUMBED TO THE DISEASE. THE THEME FOR THE EVENING: STOP AIDS, KEEP THE PROMISE.

KW02: "The promise is dedicate ourselfs to working with those infected or affected by AIDS. And in that way helping to stop AIDS."

(ON-CAM TAG) WOLTER ESTIAMTES THAT - ACROSS MAUI COUNTY - THERE ARE ABOUT 300 MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE HIV-POSITIVE.

WIND, RAIN, SURF)(PiP-Surf)

HC: A DOUBLE-SHOT OF WEATHER HIT MAUI THIS WEEK AS WIND AND RAIN FROM TWO KONA STORMS CAUSED PROBLEMS ACROSS MAUI. WHILE RAINFALL TOTALS WERE SIGNIFICANT, THERE WERE NO RECORD-BREAKERS. BUT IN A LOT OF AREAS, THE RAIN WAS DELIVERED IN DRENCHING DOWNPOURS. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING HAS THE STORY.

(STORM TOTALS -PKG) WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE...AND YOU SURE WOULDN'T WANT TO DRINK IT. IN ADDITION TO VARIOUS SHRUBBERY AND OTHER ITEMS RAPIDLY FLOWING DOWNSTREAM, THERE WAS A GOOD DEAL OF WHATEVER ELSE THERE WAS UPSTREAM COMING DOWN. MUCH OF IT WOUND UP IN THE OCEAN...ALONG WITH MUCH OF WHAT USED TO BE THE BEACH. THE STORM OF '07 WILL BE ANALYZED FOR SOME TIME TO COME. WHILE GOVERNOR LINGLE SIGNED A DISASTER PROCLAMATION LATE FRIDAY - MAKING LOW-INTEREST LOANS AVAILABLE FOR CLEANUP AND THE RESTORATION OF LIFE, THE MONETARY TOTAL WAS NOWHERE NEAR CALCULATED.

IN ADDITION TO MUD AND DEBRIS REMOVAL, IT WILL TAKE A GOOD DEAL OF TIME FOR THE OCEAN TO RECOVER FROM THE INUNDATION OF SILT AND DEBRIS...INCLUDING THE RESULTS OF TWO SEWAGE SPILLS THAT FLOWED INTO THE SEA AT LAHAINA AND NAPILI. HEALTH OFFICIALS RECOMMEND STAYING OUT OF THE WATER FOR A WHILE AS IT HAS BECOME KIND OF A COCKTAIL OF BACTERIA, MUD AND OTHER UNPLEASANT THINGS.

THE HEAVY DOWNPOUS WERE A HELP TO UPCOUNTRY RESERVOIRS, ALTHOUGH SURFACE WATER TREATMENT WILL BE A STRAIN ON RESOURCES UNTIL LEVELS OF MUD SUBSIDE.

STORM TOTALS ARE IMPRESSIVE, WITH THE PU'U KUKUI WATERSHED IN KAHALAWAI RECEIVING NEARLY TWO FEET OF RAIN OVER SIX DAYS. KIHEI RECEIVED HALF OFITS TOTAL RAINFALL FOR THE YEAR DURING THIS STORM ALONE.

NEXT IS THE CLEANUP...BUT THAT'S A STORY FOR NEXT WEEK. FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

HC: THE REAL POWER OF MOTHER NATURE, HOWEVER, HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE KONA LOWS. GIANT SURF FROM HURRIANCE-FORCE SYSTEMS WELL TO THE NORTH OF MAUI BATTERED THE NORTH SHORE, CAUSING THE CLOSURE OF BALDWIN AND HOOKIPA BEACHES BECAUSE OF EROSION AND DANGEROUS CONDITIONS. MAUI COUNTY LIFEGUARD ARCHIE KALEPA REPORTED WAVE FACES APPROACHING SEVENTY FEET ON THE OUTER REEF AT BALDWIN BEACH, RESULTING IN ONE TOE-IN SURFER BEING TREATED FOR SEVERE LEG LACERATIONS. THE SURF ALSO DAMAGED THE PICNIC PAVILLIONS AT BOTH BEACHES. KALEPA ESTIMATEDN THAT WAVE FACES WERE NEARLY 50 FEET HIGH MONDAY AT HO'OKIPA.

(on-cam) WIND WAS THE OTHER WEATHER FACTOR, AS GUSTS TOPPING 50 MILES PER HOUR ADDED QUITE A WIND CHILL AT HALEAKALA. MEANWHILE, WIND GUSTS OF MORE THAN 40 MILES AN HOUR SNAPPED THE MOORING LINE OF A 33-FOOT FISHING BOAT OFF WAHIKULI WAYSIDE PARK IN LAHAINA, SENDING IT FOUNDERING ON THE ROCKS ON SUNDAY. MAUI WEATHER EXPERT GLENN JAMES SAYS STORMY CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST ACROSS MAUI COUNTY INTO THIS WEEKEND AND - POSSIBLY - THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK.

(Giving, holiday) (PiP-Kettle, Bell)

J: CHRISTMAS CAROLS, TWINKLING LIGHTS, DOOR-BUSTER SALES...YES, IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME. AND IT WOULDN'T BE THE SAME WITHOUT THE RED KETTLE AND THE NICE PEOPLE WHO VOLUNTEER FOR THE SALVATION ARMY.

(vo) GROCERY STORES, SHOPPING MALLS, THE POST OFFICE...THE FAMILIAR JINGLE IS ONE OF THE MOST RELIABLE SOUNDS OF CHRISTMAS. THIS WEEKEND, IN ADDITION TO THE SALVATION ARMY BELLS AND SMILES, THE LOKAHI PROJECT BROUGHT OUT HUNDREDS OF FOLKS ACROSS MAUI WHO BROUGHT IN THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOR THE STATEWIDE CHARITY. ESTABLISHED IN 1985 BY KHON NEWSCASTER KLESLIE WILCOX, THE LOKAHI GIVING PROJECT HELPS 125 DIFFERENT CHARITIES ACROSS THE STATE OF HAWAII.

(on-cam) AND WHILE THERE ARE LOTS OF WAYS FOR YOU TO HELP THOSE LESS FORTUNATE, THERE ARE ALSO LOTS OF FOLKS OUT TO SWINDLE YOU AS WELL. THE HAWAII CHAPTETR OF THE AMERICAN RED CROSS THIS WEEK WARNS THE PUBLIC TP WATCH OUT IF SOMEONE KNOCKS ON YOUR DOOR OR CALLS YOU TO DONATE TO THE RED CROSS. ANY SUCH SOLICITATION WOULD BE FAUDULENT BECAUSE THE RED CROSS ONLY SOLICITS FOR DONATIONS VIA THE MAIL AND THROUGH ITS WEB SITE. IF YOU'D LIKE TO GIVE TO THE RED CROSS, FOLLOW THE LINK FROM OUR WEBSITE AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM.

AND SPEAKING OF WEB SITES AND LEGITIMATE HOLIDAY MESSAGES, ONE OF THE COLLEST EVER GIVES YOU A CHANCE TO SEND A HOLIDAY MESSAGE OF LOVE AND SUPPORT TO AMERICAN TROOPS SERVING IN THE MIDDLE EAST - FOR FREE.

(FF-VO-CG) THE SITE IS WWW.LETSSAYTHANKS-DOT-COM AND IT'S SPONSORED BY XEROX. THE WEB SITE FEATURES DOZENS OF PRECIOUS PATRIOTIC WORKS OF ART BY CHILDREN FROM ACROSS THE UNITED STATES.

K: FROM A BITTER-SWEET FINISH TO THE ULTIMATE SWEETNESS...THAT WAS FOOTBALL IN HAWAII THIS WEEK. ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M KALAPANA.

"HOW SWEET IT IS!" IS DEFINITELY THE WAY LIFE IS FOR THE U-H WARRIOS AND THEIR HUGE FOLLOWING OF FANS. THE WARRIORS CAME FROM A SEEMINGLY INSURMOUNTABLE 21-POINT DEFECIT, NOT JUSTONCE BUT TWICE, TO DEFEAT THE WASHINGTON HUSKIES BY A FINAL SCORE OF 35-28 SATURDAY NIGHT AT ALOHA STADIUM. RIDING THE CREST OF THAT PERFECT 12-AND-OH REGULAR SEASON RECORD FINISH, THE WARRIORS WERE INVITED TO THE BIG DANCE WHEN WORD CAME ON SUNDAY THAT THE TEAM WOULD BE INVITED TO A B-C-S SERIES GAME. AND NOT JUST ANY GAME, BUT THE SUGAR BOWL. ON JANUARY FIRST THE WARRIORS WILL FACE OFF AGAINST THE GEORGIA BULLDOGS.

REWIND THE CLOCK TO FRIDAY NIGHT AND IT WAS A VERY DIFFERENT OUTCOME AT ALOHA STADIUM FOR THE STATE DIVISION TWO STATE TITLE GAME BETWEEN LAHAINALUNA AND THE IOLANI RAIDERS. UNFORTUNATELY VERY FEW GOT TO WATCH BECAUSE - FOR REASONS THAT STILL HAVEN'T BEEN DISCLOSED, THE DIRECTOR OF THE HAWAII HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION DECIDED THAT OC-16 COULD NOT BROADCAST THE STATE DIVISION ONE AND TWO FINALS LIVE. WHILE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL FANS ACROSS THE STATE WERE CERTAINLY DISAPPOUINTED, MAUI FANS WERE DOUBLY DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE OF THE OUTCOME OF THE D-TWO GAME.

(vo) FIRST, THE HIGHLIGHTS...A GRAY EVENING FRIDAY NIGHT AT ALOHA STADIUM. A TRAFFIC JAM FORCED THE TOP-RATED LAHAINALUNA TEAM TO START WITH JUST 10 MINUTES OF PRACTICE TIME, BUT THEY MUST HAVE BEEN WARMING UP ON THE BUS BECAUSE THEY CAME OUT READY TO GO....BUT MAYBE A LITTLE CONFISED. FIRST, AFTER A SCAMPER BY IOLANI QUARTERBACK KELA MARCIEL, LUNA LAKE CASCO TAKES OUT THE CAMERAMAN. OUCH! LUNAS HOLD BUT IOLANI GOES FOR IT ON FOURTH DOWN. WATCH LUNA MATT LAWLESS LEAP TO GRAB THIS INTERCEPTION AT THE GOAL LINE...THEN PROTECT THE BALL AS HE BRINGS IT BACK OUT TO THE 30. GREAT PLAY...UNTIL YOU REALIZE THAT IF HE HAD JUST KNOCKED THE BALL DOWN, THE LUNAS WOULD HAVE STARTED ON THEIR 33...INSTEAD OF THE 30.

THAT DOESN'T MATTER TO SENIOR KAILAS MCGHEE AS HE TAKES THIS HANDOFF AND RUMBLES FOR 25. VERY NEXT PLAY AND JAKE MANNING TUCKS THE BALL BEHIND HIS BACK AND ROCKETS LEFT FOR 35 YARDS AND A TOUCHDOWN. LUNAS ARE THE FIRST TO SCORE. THEY'RE ALSO THE FIRST TO SHOW A STRONG DEFENSE AS THEY FLUSH RAIDER QB MARCIEL OUT OF THE POCKET...MISGUIDING THIS LONG PASS ATTEMPT.

LUNAS HAVE IT BACK AND IT'S "BRO" TIME, JAKE MANNING TO TWIN BROTHER JAYSON MANNING...YEAH! AFTER FAILING ON THEIR FIRST POINT-AFTER TRY, LUNAS GO FOR TWO AND IT'S SIMIONE VEHIKITE...IN THERE!

WHEN IT WAS LOOKING LIKE IT WOULD BE ALL-LUNAS, ALL THE TIME, THE RAIN STARTED...AND IT POURED AS MARCIEL FIRED DEEP TO REID FURUKAWA, PUTTING IOLANI ON THE BOARD. THEN, CHECK THIS OUT THE EXTRA POINT KICKER? COACH'S DAUGHTER, KODI LOOK. SHE SPLITS THE UPRIGHTS...FOR THE 31ST TIME THIS SEASON. AND YOU KNOW HER DAD IS PROUD!

IOLANI CAME TO LIFE IN THE DOWNPOUR AS THEY STUFF LAKE CASCO ON THE LUNA'S NEXT POSSESSION TO END THE FIRST QUARTER. AND TO START THE SECOND PERIOD...A BOMB - MARCIEL TO FURUKAWA THAT WOULD BE A TOUCHDOWN IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE SPEED OF LAKE CASCO. RAIDERS SCORE ANYWAY ON THIS SCREEN PASS TO LIONEL FUJIOKA...AND THAT BRINGS THE COACH'S DAUGHTER BACK FOR ANOTHER EXTRA POINT. IOLANI ICED IT LATE IN THE FOURTH QUARTER ON THIS POWER RUN BY JUSTIN YAMAMOTO. LUNAS LOSE A HEART-BREAKER, 28-21 IN THE STATE DIVISION TWO TITLE GAME.

(on-cam) IN THE DIVISION ONE FINALE, IT WAS LEILEHUA UPSETTING TOP-SEEDED SAINT LOIUS 20 TO 16. IT WAS THE MULES SECOND STRAIGHT UPSET, AFTER DEFEATING THE BALDWIN BEARS IN THE SEMI-FINALS A WEEK EARLIER. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE M-I-L CHAMPIONS LAHAINALUNA AND BLADWIN FOR SHOWING THE STATE THE POWER OF THE NEIGHBOR ISLAND SCHOOLS.
