No. 6 Kamehameha outgained No. 2 Kahuku 234-231 in scrimmage yards Friday night. Yet, it was Kahuku that came out with a 24-7 victory at Aloha Stadium.

By Nick Abramo on August 29, 2018

The scoreboard is one thing. The life experience is another. The Kamehameha football team went to Carson, Calif., last week and scored a 17-6 victory over the Carson Colts on Friday. For coach Abu Ma’afala and the Warriors (2-1, 1-1 ILH Open), the trip was so much more than just a win on the scoreboard. “We took the red-eye out on Tuesday and landed Wednesday morning and hit the road running,” Ma’afala said. “We went to San Fernando Valley and […]

Kamehameha’s Arias has a night to remember

By Nick Abramo on August 10, 2018

Hoku Arias was all over the place Friday night. He was part of a gnarly defense for the Kamehameha Warriors in a grueling, 21-7 victory over Kapolei in a historic OIA-ILH alliance opener at Aloha Stadium. Arias had three sacks and a tackle for loss —- all in the first half — and then he scored on a 2-yard touchdown run with 5:55 left in the fourth quarter to put the Warriors up for good at 14-7. Four plays and […]
