Can Mililani keep this offensive pace all year?

August 17, 2014

You’d have to play Madden or NCAA 14, load up your lineup with All-Pros (or All-Americans) and go no-huddle (sometimes hurry up) all game long to rack up crazy numbers like this. Yes, the scoreboard at John Kauinana Stadium binged and banged like a pinball machine on Saturday night. For both Mililani and Saint Louis. […]

Ching takes over as Kalani’s new QB

August 16, 2014

Tyler Ching put down his bat and glove following Kalani’s baseball season in the spring and immediately reached for a football.

August 16, 2014

For instance, take Moanalua’s 30-23 season-opening victory over No. 8 Waianae on Friday night. When the third-quarter closed, all that was left for Moanalua to do was control the ball and the clock, wrap […]

Pearl City is in rebuilding mode after losing 33 seniors off a state tournament team. Having Dominic Maneafaiga among the returnees is a pretty good place to start.

Kahuku-Kapolei: Tragedy for Hurricane ohana

August 16, 2014

No mistaking it, Kahuku is still a run-first team. Forty carries for 222 yards on the ground say it all, especially against a big, physical Kapolei defense in a tough 33-19 nonconference win. But it was the way the Red Raiders amassed their yardage that was different. Counters. Options, which weren’t altogether different, except that […]

As you can see (photos below), they’ve spruced up the facility here at Carleton Weimer Field. The field is lush and marked for every yard, the […]
