The final score was 62-7 and it was really over by the end of the first quarter. After one quarter Molokai led 22-0 and it was clear that Molokai had the better team today. By halftime the score was 49-7 as the Farmers proved to be faster, bigger and stronger off the line than Seabury, a team Molokai had never beaten in 8-man football, until today.
Yes, Molokai has come close. Over the past five years, the Farmers have lost the Maui Interscholatic League title to Seabury each year. Molokai was excruciatingly close in 2012, losing at home to Seabury 20-19.
But that is all history as Molokai ran its record up to 2-0 with a game coming up this Friday against Hana in Hana. Go get ’em Farmers!
