The Baldwin High School football team won its third straight game Friday, routing Kamehameha Maui 42-19 at Kanaiaupuni Stadium.

Baldwin’s Kamaki Gouveia rushed for a career-high 148 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries and he also returned an onside kick for a score.

The Bears put the mercy-rule running clock into effect with touchdowns on back-to-back second-half possessions. The first, on a 34-yard run by Gouveia and the second, on a 17-yard touchdown pass from Chayce Akaka to La’akea Kahoohanohano-Davis.

Kamehameha Maui (3-4, 1-2) won the first-round MIL D-II title.

The Warriors managed to turned off the running clock with a 10-play, 80-yard drive that ended with a 7-yard touchdown pass from Kainoa Sanchez to Kamuela Kaniaupio with 10 seconds left in the third quarter.

Sanchez threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Kealaula Keliikoa with 4:47 to play, but Gouveia then returned the ensuing onside kickoff 55 yards for a touchdown.
