The soccer season is over and another fine display of talent was there for the viewing at Waipio Peninsula Soccer Stadium the last two weeks.

It was hard to tell Thursday night which boys soccer state tournament victory was more impressive — Baldwin’s 1-0 win on penalty kicks over Mililani or Kaiser’s 2-1 upset of Interscholastic League of Honolulu champion and second-seeded ‘Iolani. So, probably, equally impressive. Both are relative underdogs to win a state title, but Baldwin is carrying the […]

One of the best things about state Division I girls soccer is that one team does not dominate the landscape. Yes, Punahou has the most titles with 11, but it’s been since 2011 that the Buffanblu have ended their season with a win in the big game. Each year, it seems to be a different […]

Both ‘Iolani and Punahou scored dominant wins on Friday in the semifinals. The Raiders stopped OIA champion and top-seeded Mililani 3-0, and the second-seeded Buffanblu won by the same score over defending D-I […]

It’s Friday afternoon and the start of the Mililani vs. ‘Iolani state girls soccer semifinal is about 2 hours away. It should be a good one at Waipio Peninsula Soccer Stadium, and may rival the Trojans’ 1-0 victory over ‘Iolani for the 2015 championship. In that one, a super close game was won by the […]

One down. Three big ones to go. On Monday, the ‘Iolani girls soccer team won its state tournament opener 3-0 over Moanalua. And if midfielder/forward Kylee Kim-Bustillos gets her way, there will be three more wins on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, culminating in the Raiders’ first title since 2013. That road is a difficult one, […]
