The University of Hawaii football team held a modified scrimmage at the end of its second Saturday practice of spring ball at Clarence T.C. Ching Athletics Complex. The Rainbow Warriors’ first, second, and third string offense took turns going against the first, second and third string defense.
The result? A dominant day for the defense. Although the scrimmage featured just a handful of possessions, the offense did not score once, albeit with a modified clock that prevented the offense from running a play inside the defense’s 10-yard line.
