Forty years ago, on October 13, 1972, Punahou74 was involved in a classic football match-up against Iolani. Who won? Watch and find out. (Hint: it contains a dramatic comeback story that made me happy!)
The game was the first of three hard-fought Punahou-Iolani matches during the 1972 season.
The video includes an interview with Punahou74 classmate Earl Nakaya and Iolani’s David Malama ’73, both of whom played in the featured 1972 game. The interview was shot on Alexander Field before Punahou played–and beat–Iolani 56-14 in the Flaming ‘P’ homecoming game on October 5, 2012.
Before signing off, Earl mentions that Neal Ane played in the game as a linebacker. He then delivers his condolences to the Ane family.
I really appreciate these jewels from the Punahou video archive and marvel that they are available to us. Thanks to the Yuri Biersach ’87, Punahou’s Director of Video Production, for bringing this story to my attention.
