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. Going back to last season, Moanalua […]

Rivalry swings Kailua’s way

By Brian McInnis on September 16, 2017

It always means a little extra when neighbors square off for bragging rights. That’s perhaps even more true in a time where the OIA’s current division construction has teams from opposite poles of the island squaring off regularly, instead of the traditional focus on East-West regional play. But Castle and Kailua are, for now, back in the same division, the OIA Red. And that means, for now, a fun annual Windward-side competition. It was renewed Friday night when Kailua headed […]

Kapolei gets back on solid football ground

By Nick Abramo on September 10, 2017

That sinking feeling is over for Kapolei. The Hurricanes (3-3, 2-3 Oahu Interscholastic Association Red) broke a three-game losing streak by routing No. 8 Kailua 33-0 at Alex Kane Stadium on Saturday night. They did it by securing eight turnovers, a performance that may put them back into the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Top 10. Simply put, had it been a fourth loss in a row — to a ranked team — the hole may have been one that they may not […]
