BEARS 20, LUNAS 17 

Baldwin High School quarterback Keelan Ewaliko scored the game-winning touchdown in overtime Saturday as the Bears answered the bell twice in the closing minutes to turn back upset-minded Lahainaluna, 20-17.

Ewaliko’s 7-yard touchdown run, on first-and-goal, trumped the 27-yard field goal Lahainaluna’s Kiko Kolher-Fonohema kicked to start the overtime session.

A War Memorial Stadium crowd of more than 8,000 — the largest to witness a football game since Hawaii and Timmy Chang beat Montana here in their 2001 season opener — witness an instant classic between these to schools, who collectively have won 12 of the last 13  Maui Interscholastic League titles.

Baldwin avenged the 32-0 shellacking it suffered to the Lunas in the first round, on Sept. 7.
