Kapolei, Waianae wage heavyweight fight

By Nick Abramo on August 13, 2017

If defense is not your cup of tea, then you didn’t have an appreciation for the close-to-the-vest, 7-0 win by Kapolei over host Waianae on Saturday night. But, if Dick Butkus or Ronnie Lott are your kind of players, then you had a ball of fun watching this intense, early-season matchup of rivals and Honolulu Star-Advertiser Top-10 ranked teams. Train your binocolars on the line of scrimmage and watch the warriors slug it out. The fistfight was a draw. One way to describe it: clean nastiness. And it was a clean game. Nobody was taking potshots at each other. On one side, Kapolei’s defensive ballers like Kukea Emmsley, Rocky Savea, Dylan Toilolo, Aaron Faumui, Dylan Naehu, Treven Maae and Junior […]

Waianae’s Rosario expected back soon

By Nick Abramo on August 8, 2017

Rico Rosario rushed for 1,266 yards and 15 touchdowns as a Waianae junior running back last season, so many people wondered why he didn’t play in a season-opening, nonleague, 49-7 home loss to Waianae last Saturday. Rosario said Tuesday night that he did not play in the game for two reasons. One, he broke a team rule, and two, he had an elbow injury suffered in a scrimmage against Punahou. Rosario also said that his absence is temporary. He has not been told by coaches exactly when he can return to his running back position on the field, but that it could be as soon as the Seariders’ next game, which is Saturday at home against Kapolei. Head coach Walter […]

Waianae learns lessons in loss to No. 1 Saint Louis

By Paul Honda on August 6, 2017

They’re not clones by any means, but the Waianae Seariders aren’t a whole lot different from the Farrington Governors at this point. Both teams, ranked in the Star-Advertiser top 10, are relatively young. Each has a massive number of first-year starters. Farrington lost to an ILH powerhouse, Kamehameha, 24 hours before Waianae took on ILH and state defending champion Saint Louis. Waianae, though, does have more returnees with experience. There just wasn’t much the Seariders could do when Saint Louis’ first-year starting quarterback, Chevan Cordeiro, went to Plan Z. On several occasions, with his passing options denied, the pin-point passer found gaps and turned them into chunks of yardage during the Crusaders’ 49-7 victory at Raymond Torii Field. On one […]

No. 1 Saint Louis starts with tough task

By Jerry Campany on August 5, 2017

When Cal Lee returned to Saint Louis a few years ago, part of the reason was to bring back a taste of the old days. The ways don’t get much older than a season opener in Waianae. From 1967 to 1975, Saint Louis began each season except one (1972) against Larry Ginoza‘s Waianae Seariders. Ron Marciel‘s squad made the trip to the West side in alternating years, making it the only visiting field his boys would play on throughout the entire season. The trip was not always kind to the Crusaders, absorbing losses of 34-0 and 17-0. All told, Saint Louis was 3-5 against the Seariders in that span, finishing the annual matchup with four losses in a row. Lee […]
