Leilehua got back on the winning track with a 34-7 win at home over Aiea, holding the visiting team to just 120 yards in total offense while racking up 399 of its own to stop a two-game skid.

Cole Northington was a workhorse in the victory, rushing for 208 yards on 38 carries, four of those touches for touchdowns.

The Mules led 14-0 at the half and made it a three score game on Northington's second TD of the night in the third quarter that made 21-0, but Na Alii got on the board to close out the third, with Ayden Bruhn finding Jheremie Cacpal from 22 yards out to keep it a two-score margin heading into the fourth.

In the final quarter Northington added two more scores, each from three yards out to close out the scoring for the contest.

Timothy Arnold led all pass catchers with eight grabs for 98 yards and also scored from 20 yards out on his only rushing attempt of the game.

Northington's performance running the ball marked the third player to reach the 200 yard mark this season, with Dillon Reis (213) and Sitani Mikaele (209) the other two.
