Chargers defend home turf with 40-0 win over Golden Hawks

Sep 6, 2010 | PC Sports


The Pearl City Chargers (2-0) notched win number two in the OIA White Division against the visiting Nanakuli Golden Hawks, 40-0 on Friday night in a lopsided, hard hitting contest that left both teams with injuries to their starting Quarterbacks.

Nanakuli lost both their #1 and #2 QB's to injuries against  Pearl City during the game. Already down to just 16 players to fill out both the offense and defense, the Golden Hawks would turn to the running back position to fill in at Quarterback.

In the 3rd Quarter, Chargers starting QB Dustin Bataya took a devastating hit on the goal line while attempting a two point conversion that knocked him out of the ball game.

The Golden Hawks played in a survival mode at Quarterback after #1 and #2 QB's went down with injuries.

Pearl City opened the game with a 75 yard kick off return for a touchdown from #8 Shawn Lopez. The Chargers scored again at 4:25 of  the 1st Quarter on a 19 yard touchdown run by Cyrus Coen. Extra point failed. Pearl City led 13-0.

At 3:46 of the 1st Quarter, Cyrus Coen from his Linebacker position, intercepted a Nanakuli pass and returned it to the Nanakuli 45 yard line. A personal foul call against the Golden Hawks put the ball on the 35. On the next play, QB Dustin Bataya connected with Shawn Lopez on a 35 yard touchdown pass to put the Chargers up 19-0. Extra point attempt failed.
