No. 5 Kamehameha falls just short

By Brian McInnis on September 23, 2017

The degree of difficulty was high, but it was Kamehameha’s game for the taking as the clock ticked down on Friday night at Aloha Stadium. It just wasn’t to be in a 21-17 loss to No. 4 Punahou, the Warriors’ second defeat to the Buffanblu in three weeks. The Warriors had taken a three-point third-quarter lead on a field goal, a clear sign the Buffanblu’s nine-game streak in the series was in jeopardy. But the Buffs took the lead back […]

Team A is Kamehameha, currently 3-0 and gaining momentum with each rousing victory. The struggles of a young […]

By Paul Honda on September 1, 2017

One thing Crusaders’ quarterback Chevan Cordeiro does exceedingly well is pick his spots and gravitate to open space when passing routes are siphoned off.

Cordeiro is deceptively fast, able to chew off gains of 5 to 10 yards consistently. Kamehameha’s response tonight when the two teams meet in the ILH opener for both teams may be to tag a […]
