Baldwin 33, Kamehameha 22
October 8, 2011 - Robert Collias
For some reason, things always go fairly tough for the Baldwin football team when it plays at Kanaiaupuni Stadium.
And, relatively speaking this season, Friday night was no different. The Bears won 33-22, giving up nine more point than they had in their first four MIL games combined. They failed to score 40 for the first time in league play, they gave up a league-season-high 11 first downs and were burned on back-to-back kickoff returns for 146 yards by Jordan Nauka, including a 95-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter.
Baldwin had only two scoreless quarters in 16 played against MIL foes before the fair break — and both of those were fourth stanzas in blowouts — but they were held scoreless in two frames against the Warriors' defense that was minus coordinator Anthony Perry, who missed the game with an illness. Kamehameha also had 183 yards of offense and 11 first downs behind backup quarterback Ryan Graham, modest numbers to be sure, but both were the most given up by Baldwin this MIL season.
On the bright side for the Bears, they had just four penalties for 50 yards after committing at least 11 penalties for triple digits in their first four games — they averaged 12 flags and 115 yards coming into the game.
