Justice Augafa of Anchorage found the end zone for the first time in his 15th career game with the University of Hawaii.

The redshirt senior transfer returned a blocked punt 2 yards for a special-teams touchdown in the second quarter of a 54-3 road win over Nevada in the Mountain West Conference.

Augafa, of South High fame, also had a 20-yard kickoff return.

In 21 career kick returns, his average is 21.5 yards. His long is 45 yards.

The 5-foot-11, 210-pounder came to Hawaii from Los Angeles Harbor College, where played quarterback, defensive back and running back. He also returned kickoffs.

Hawaii has won four of five games to open the football season and sits atop the MWC’s West Division at 1-0.

This was Augafa’s fifth career college touchdown, with four coming at LA Harbor – two on offense, two on defense.
