The Cinnabon Island Saints defeated the Hawaiian Rock Eagles 36-6 in the Matua division of their GNYFF football game Saturday afternoon at the Eagles home field.

Already leading 20-0 at the half, the Saints opened up the 3rd quarter with another touchdown to extend their lead 28-0 when Cory Cruz ran into the end zone off a quick screen.

A few more plays into the half, Eagles’ Vincent Salas got injured. After a long wait, Salas had to be taken out of the game through a medical transport. Coming out of the break, the Eagles broke out of the huddle shouting, “for Vincent!”

Immediately after, sparked by Salas’ injury, the Eagles stormed into the end zone. Elipas Oratson connected with Eagles quarterback, Alonso Plyebumal, by catching the ball midair amidst two Saints defenders and running into the end zone for a 45-yard touchdown reception. The Eagles side erupted in cheers at their first touchdown of the game. However, the sparked momentum was short-lived as the Saints would score yet another touchdown.

Saints Joseph Flores swept to the left for a 40-yard touchdown; John Anthony Cruz followed through with a successful kick for the 2-point conversion, making the score 36-6.

The Eagles saw some light when Plyebumal grabbed the first down at the 35-yard line. However, the Saints Juan Salas intercepted a pass and with only seconds left in the game the Saints took home another victory.

In the first half, Flores put his Saints on the board first, running in for a four-yard touchdown. Flores was then followed by teammates Devin Leon and Cruz with pass reception touchdowns to put the Saints up 20-0 at the half.

The Saints now improve to 2-2 while the Eagles (0-4) have yet to pick up a win.

Pro triathlete Mieko Carey finished third in XTERRA Japan on Sunday in a time of 3:43:02. Her career was on hiatus for a couple of years raising her twin children. It’s safe to say the 40-year-old is back in top form. Congratulations Mieko san!
