Sat Aug 14 - HAWAII (10-6) 36, Mississippi (9-7) 16 (3712) - Hawaii held the Fire Dogs well below its regular-season scoring average of 35.9 points per game by intercepting QB John Fourcade three times, one of which was returned for a TD
IPFL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME - Saturday August 21 at Austin - 4527)
HAWAII  (11-6) 28, TEXAS (12-4) 13 - The Hawaii Hammerheads exploded for 17 points in the final 1:27 to claim the championship with a 28-13 win over Texas. Texas took a 13-11 lead on the strength of a 44-yard FG by Todd Fitzgerald with 1:45 to go. The lead proved to be short lived, as the visiting Hammerheads needed just :18 to regain the lead. After an incomplete pass on first down, Hawaii quarterback Tim Carey hit wideout Darrell Jones for a 22-yard gain down the left sideline. Carey then scrambled for a five-yard gain before scoring an 11-yard touchdown on a naked bootleg around right end. On the point after play, Carey found running back Calvin Mims in the right corner of the end zone for the two-point conversion and a 19-13 lead. Before the stunned crowd could catch its breath, Texas fumbled the ensuing kickoff and Hawaii's Falaniko Vitale returned the loose ball 23 yards for a touchdown. As if that weren't enough, the hospitable Terminators later snapped the ball out of the end zone for a safety and the game's final two points. "This was won on sheer determination by our players from the beginning," Hawaii coach Guy Benjamin said. "There wasn't a player on that sideline in the second half that didn't think we would prevail." Behind an opportunistic defensive effort, the Hammerheads held the league's highest-scoring offense well below its regular-season average of 40.8 points per game. In doing so, Texas finished with just eight first downs and 144 yards of total offense. Aside from recording four turnovers (two fumble recoveries and two interceptions), Hawaii also held the regular-season champion Terminators scoreless for two quarters. "It's been that way all season," said Carey. "Our defense keeps us in every single game, and tonight they held on and waited for us to put something on the board." Thanks to Carey and his backfield tandem of Mims and Brendyn Agbayani, Hawaii controlled both the ball and the tempo of the game. Against the league's top-rated defense, the Hammerheads' balanced attack chewed up 221 yards of total offense (117 passing and 104 rushing) and 37:27 in time of possession (compared to 22:33 for Texas). On the ground the trio rushed for a combined 116 yards (Agbayani, 10 carries for 45 yards; Carey, seven carries for 44 yards and one TD; and Mims four carries for 30 yards), while Carey was 12-24-1 passing for 117 yards and one TD.
