Buchanan makes history with TD pass

By Christian Shimabuku on August 20, 2017

Alexandria Buchanan remembers the days that she would sling the old pigskin around with her father when she was little. She didn’t play organized football until joining a flag football league in the seventh grade, but that’s where she says her love of the sport truly developed. The journey hit its crescendo on Saturday night when the McKinley sophomore quarterback became the first girl in Hawaii to throw a touchdown pass in a game. She found Ace Asis on a 16-yard fade route that tied the game against Kalaheo at 14-14 in the second quarter. Nanakuli’s Chelsey-Ann Kaimi is the only girl to score a touchdown when she did so crossed the plane against Moanalua during the 2000 season. “It […]

VIDEO: Campbell overwhelms Aiea 48-13

By Paul Honda on August 20, 2017

Balance is always a luxury for most offenses, but the Campbell Sabers are finding that they can be less predictable and very explosive by air and land. The Sabers overwhelmed Aiea 48-13 on Saturday, pounding on the ground just one week after taking to the air against Farrington.

Sabers refuse to be one-dimensional on offense

By Paul Honda on August 20, 2017

Three games into the Darren Johnson era at Campbell — including a 2-0 start to OIA regular-season play — the Sabers are finding their new identity. A week after junior quarterback Krenston Kaipo passed for 386 yards in a win over Farrington, the seventh-ranked Sabers found more running room in a 48-13 win over a pesky Aiea squad on Saturday night at Campbell. The Sabers rushed 26 times for 163 yards while Kaipo was 9-for-16 with 191 passing yards. That balance made Campbell much less predictable to defend, and it hasn’t compromised the explosiveness of Poki‘i Adkins-Kupukaa. The sophomore finished with six receptions for 157 yards and two touchdowns catches. He also ran a jet sweep for 13 yards, returned […]

Kapolei’s offense hits a higher gear

By Nick Abramo on August 20, 2017

No June Jones. No Taulia Tagovailoa. No problem. The Kapolei offense is in fine hands with new offensive coordinator Amosa Amosa, new quarterback Kaniala Kalaola and … the head coach who has been there since the start of the Hurricanes football program — Darren Hernandez. The thinking by many in the preseason was that without Jones as OC and without Tagovailoa at QB, the Kapolei offense would be nowhere near where it was last year, when the Hurricanes made it all the way to the state Open Division semifinals. On Saturday night, Kapolei’s new offense looked a lot like the old one. Kalaola completed 24 of 29 passes for 318 yards with no interceptions and four touchdowns in a 41-7 […]
