PREPPING for 2018: Kailua Surfriders

By Nick Abramo on August 16, 2018

21ST IN SERIES For two years in a row, Kailua coach Joseph Wong has had to play large chunks of the season with backup quarterbacks who were called in when the starters were hurt. They did a great job, according to Wong, but they were slotted to play elsewhere. This year, he feels fortunate to have two quarterbacks at the position — Cole Weber and Raynen Ho-Mook — and likely not have any fall-off if either gets hurt. Ho-Mook got […]

Leilehua, Kailua entertain in OT duel

By Brian McInnis on August 11, 2018

Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here? The words of Maximus Decimus Meridius, of Gladiator fame, came to mind as Leilehua and Kailua played to an at-times ugly, at-times brutal, at-times action packed duel at the Surfriders’ Alex Kane Stadium on Friday night. The Mules’ 9-yard touchdown connection between quarterback Max Nichols and receiver Jayzon Ramos was the difference in the 20-14 Leilehua win in overtime, but only after Kailua made a thrilling comeback to tie […]

GAME NIGHT 8/10: Leilehua/Kailua

By Brian McInnis on August 10, 2018

Leilehua 20, Kailua 14, FINAL ———- Raynen Ho-Mook’s desperation pass gets batted down in the end zone. Leilehua escapes with the OT victory. One snuffed run and two incomplete passes have Kailua facing 4th and 10 from the 20 … Kailua lets Leilehua off the hook. A huge encroachment penalty on Kailua as Leilehua prepared to line up a 33-yard field goal keeps the drive alive, and Max Nichols finds Jayzon Ramos for a 9-yard TD. Kick fails, though. Kailua […]

Moanalua’s radical revival presses on

By Nick Abramo on October 7, 2017

If you thought Moanalua was out cold after five games, you were in the majority. Na Menehune were 0-5 and looked done as far as making the playoffs were concerned, but have now won four games in a row. Their 17-14 victory over Kailua in the first round of the Oahu Interscholastic Association Division I playoffs Saturday night at Skippa Diaz Stadium sets up a quarterfinal game against undefeated and second-ranked Mililani next weekend.
