Homecoming football is below the fold

From the Advertiser: Te’o, Punahou rout ‘Iolani

With University of Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis watching closely from a golf cart behind the end zone, Punahou School senior Manti Te’o showed off his multitude of skills yesterday in helping the Buffanblu rout visiting ‘Iolani, 49-7, in Interscholastic League of Honolulu action.

Weis and a "Senior Day" crowd of about 2,500 at Alexander Field watched Te’o — regarded by some as the nation’s No. 1 linebacker prospect — score touchdowns on a 17-yard reception, a pair of tackle-busting runs and a 46-yard blocked punt return in addition to helping hold the Raiders to just 10 yards rushing. The Buffanblu, ranked No. 1 in The Advertiser’s statewide Top 10 poll of coaches and media, improved to 7-1 overall and 4-1 in the ILH.

Star Bulletin: Te’o and Punahou put on a show for Weis

They don’t call it "Zero" for nothing.

Punahou’s revamped defense, nicknamed Zero, all but shut down ‘Iolani’s potent passing attack in a 49-7 rout yesterday at sunny Alexander Field.

A crowd of about 2,000, including Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis, saw Punahou improve to 4-1 in the Interscholastic League of Honolulu. The No. 1-ranked Buffanblu (7-1 overall) remained in a tie for first place with Saint Louis.

"I went into this game very edgy," Punahou coach Kale Ane said. "Any time you can beat a team like ‘Iolani, you’re very happy. ‘Iolani’s multi-faceted with screens, deep passing, multiple receivers. You can’t focus on one."

And I know I probably missed a whole bunch of other sports news, but this is all I could find on a Sunday evening.
