Is this the end of a dynasty at Kamehameha? “I don’t think so,” Punahou coach Peter Balding said. “I think our society looks at a dynasty in terms of […]


(Didn’t have enough space in the print edition this morning, so here goes.) Kamehameha 3, Kamehameha-Hawaii 0 The Kapalama campus Warriors were in total control from start to finish against their sister campus from the Big Island for a 25-15, 25-13, 25-13 win in quarterfinal play of the New City Nissan/HHSAA Girls Volleyball State Championships […]


Oh yes, it’s that time again, ladies and germs, to elaborate and congratulate these fine football teams. Perhaps no compliment would be more apt than one to Tyler Taumua as we examine the Tyler Taumua Stat Ticker. It’s been a few weeks since we last examined the junior running back’s prolific numbers. With the Great […]



Fourth and the season

by Paul Honda on October 23, 2011

Correction on the key fourth-and-1 play by Campbell late in yesterday’s game with Aiea. I thought I saw Justin Tago-Su‘e sneak it over for a first down, but I got mixed up after talking with the coaches and wrote that it was backup QB Isaac Hurd. It was Tago-Su‘e who snuck over for the key […]

See Parts 2-5 here. Click here to see Kaimi Fairbairn’s 60-yard practice field goal at Aloha Stadium. No tee.


(Wrote more than enough for the print edition. Here’s the uncut version.) In the beginning, there was basic, vanilla kicking of points after. He kicked the PATs, but preferred catching the football. Then came high school. Kaimi Fairbairn didn’t see much ahead in football, even at a program on the rise. He took a chance […]


Update 10:50 p.m. Final: Kamehameha 17, Punahou 10. The ILH D-I race is up for grabs again. Love the drama. Update 8:58 p.m. Final: ‘Iolani 21, Pac-Five 6. ‘Iolani clinches the ILH Division II crown. In the second game, Punahou and Kamehameha are tied at 3-all with 6:24 left in the third quarter. Update 6:18 […]

by Paul Honda on October 4, 2011

Yes, yes, it’s that time again ladies and gentlemen, Governors and non-Govs. It’s the Tyler Taumua statistical update, courtesy of the No. 1-ranked Farrington Governors and the pummelling “Bamboolas.” Taumua gained 100 rushing yards on 24 carries against then-No. 1 Kahuku on Saturday night.
