That fall back to Earth came quick for Waipahu. The Marauders, who opened the season with a 34-13 upset of Waianae, got stomped by ‘Iolani 55-14 on Saturday. They had it coming, in a way. A game that was originally scheduled for home was switched to ‘Iolani.

Q&A: Waipahu coach Bryson Carvalho

By Paul Honda on August 11, 2018

Year 4 has begun for Bryson Carvalho as head coach at Waipahu. It’s this point when every head coach feels comfortable enough, knowing every player from varsity to JV understands the system, the terminology, the expectations. The culture. But one thing gnaws at Carvalho, whose Division I Marauders pulled a stunning 34-13 nonleague win over Open Division Waianae last week. Whether it’s complacency or Fortnite or any other aspect, his squad had a ton of academically ineligible players to start […]
