OK. I resisted the headline “Sporting in Seattle”. From the Star Bulletin
Punahou broke open a 14-6 game early in the second quarter by scoring 21 unanswered points. Hilliard, Toma and Mark Silverstein each caught touchdown passes in the final 7:30 of the second quarter as the Buffanblu led 35-6 at halftime.
Cougars coach Mark Keel, whose team was making its season debut, said his players had trouble keeping up with Punahou all night long.
“There is definitely a speed difference from game speed to practice speed,” Keel said.
In the second half, Central Kitsap cut the deficit to 35-13 on a 12-yard scoring run by H’Arion Gaulden. But Punahou responded with a 19-yard touchdown run by Stabren Caires late in the third to put the game out of reach.
