By Billy Hull on September 14, 2018

Pearl City coach Robin Kami called 14 straight passes to start the game and quarterback Makana Canyon took advantage of it throwing five touchdown passes in a 47-6 win over Kalaheo in an OIA Division […]

PREPPING for 2018: Pearl City Chargers

By Nick Abramo on July 28, 2018

11TH IN A SERIES Pearl City football has been highly successful for quite a while now, but there is a plateau that has proved to be insurmountable so far. The Chargers are nearly always contending for a title and have made several appearances in the state tournament this decade. However, championships are not on the resume yet. “Last year, we were happy we got into the (OIA Division II) championship game,” coach Robin Kami said. “This year, we’re going back […]
