GAME NIGHT: No. 1 Saint Louis/No. 2 Kahuku

He gets 4 but Saint Louis doesn’t have to use a timeout. Third-and-5. They call a pass. Maiava with a DIME to Kaniho for 10 yards. That moves the chains. Under 2 minutes. Second-and-7. False start. Second-and-12. Option pitch to Nawahine who gets 1 yard but goes out of bounds. Clock stops. Saint Louis will save a timeout. Saint Louis calls timeout with 54 seconds to go. Kahuku will punt from its 30. Oh My. Saint Louis has to use a timeout with Kahuku lining up to punt. That’s their final timeout. Stunning mismanagement by both teams down the stretch.

(6:20) Saint Louis ball on its 21. Two passes complete to Quinn for 11 yards. Quinn now with 130 yards on five grabs. Fatu Atuaia, who was named to the Polynesian Bowl on Thursday, gets Kahuku’s sixth sack. Cordeiro on third-and-16 drops a DIME to Panoke over the middle for 40 yards to the 34. Crazy. What a game.

Fourth-and-4 at the Kahuku 37 and Saint Louis will go. Unbelievable run by Cordeiro who slips and slides and slithers his way through tacklers for a 6-yard gain and a first down. Kahuku had its chance there to stop him and get the ball. Third-and-13 coming up at the Kahuku 34. Quinn might have run a wrong route or it came out of Cordeiro’s hand funny.

That stops a 24-point scoring run by Saint Louis.

(6:32) Kahuku ball on its 20. Maiava’s pass is way underthrown and DB Isaiah Tufaga with the 40-yard INT return for a TD. 24-7 Crusaders.

Inside screen to Panoke for 6 yards. Punt time.

(10:36) Kahuku ball on its 44. Maiava to Heffernan for 12 yards and DB Kama Moore is taken out by friendly fire. This could be a big blow. Many people think he’s the best cover corner in the state. It’s a left shoulder/arm/wrist injury it looks like from up here. Maiava rips off a 33-yard run but a flag is down. OL Inoke Vimahi called for unnecessary roughness. Maiava stopped for a gain of 1 and nearly fumbles but he’s ruled down. Incomplete pass and Kahuku will punt.

    All you do is whine. Now you are inventing boogiemen and showing your own ignorance. I was and continue to be quite complimentary of Kahuku’s game play, they almost beat a more talented team, but they came up short. SL did not play its best game, and I thought they gave up too much yardage because they played too much man coverage and cover 3. I have been a DC myself when I have the time which hasn’t been as often enough as I would like. They could have played better, that’s my assessment, but they played well enough to win. They had an emotional let down when they were up by 17, which should have never happened.

    BUT…as far as I can see that game was called as fair as I can see. If anything I think SL got the bad end on a couple calls, if you ask me. I saw some holding on two of Kahuku’s touchdowns, and that defensive holding on 7 before the go ahead touchdown was non existent but as I said to you the last time, the only one complaining about the referees seems to be you.

    Kahuku lost. They played a great game but they lost. They didn’t lose because of the referees, they lost because Saint Louis beat them. Say it with me…..Saint Louis won. Not they won because Cal paid the referees, they won. They scored more points.

    LET ME REMPHASIZE WHAT YOU MISSED. Good Coaches, Good Players, and Good Sportsman, don’t complain about the referees. They take their lumps when they lose. It sucks. I have been there in College for the Conference Championship. It sucks, but if you have any class, you just man up. You don’t bitch about the refs, it’s classless. From what I can see it was as fair as it gets. No one team got hosed any more than the other.

    One observation brother, you got issues. You got blinders on. As far as OIA, ILH, or any other league, or school, you obviously have some serious inferiority issues because you are inventing phantoms where none existed. I could care less whether what Kahuku does or doesn’t do. Actually, if truth be known, I don’t gain any satisfaction from Kahuku failing or any school for that matter. I just wish the best for all the kids and that they got to participate in a great experience. They lost. The Sun will rise tomorrow.

    You on the other hand appear to have some serious mental issues with your desire for Saint Louis to fail, you are more invested in Saint Louis failing than you are about whether your own kids played a great game, as I mentioned earlier, Kahuku played above itself. That’s a complimentary statement unlike your own inability to recognize that Saint Louis has some fantastic athletes and played a decent game although not a great game, which should be obvious. Some of that credit goes to Kahuku for playing a great game, unfortunately for Kahuku fans, it wasn’t enough.

    Something to consider while you are stewing ….maybe Saint Louis would have played a better game if they hadn’t had to play the # 3 seed and then the # 2 seed in back to back weeks and had gotten the benefit of being the number 1 seed. Doesn’t matter, they won, with the deck stacked against them. More proud of them for that, than anything else.

    That inability to recognize that says more about your own inferiority than anything I can ever say to you.

    Good luck in life, you will need it.

    Let the players play, coaches coach and spectators cheer, it was a GREAT game!

    Only one team takes home the koa trophy, but Winners on both sides of the field tonight.

    Win with humility and lose with class.

    Nobody mentioned the fumble by Maiava, which was not called. Funny, he wasn’t down, and he still had forward progress.

    Looking forward to Part IV approximately 364 days from now!


  4. 808 November 19, 2017 2:52 pm

    What a great game, was there to the very end. Some folks on the St. Louis side actually started heading for the parking lot after Kahuku made that first down on last drive….they missed a helluava finish. Just worn out today by the rollercoaster of emotions and getting to bed at 2:30am this morning!! Pure joy on the StL side after that last TD, family, friends and strangers alike “high fiving” and hugging each other in celebration. The Brotherhood will have a great Turkey Day this year. My hats off to players and coaches on both sides. Played hard and said all the right things after the battle. Very impresssed with the Kahuku fans, they were out in full force and were definitely a factor. Even after that devastating finish, they stayed loud and proud and was in full support of their team. From the StL side, the sound and sight of the everyone in Red was impressive and probably very intimidating to the Crusaders on the field. Saints took all the blows and offense delivered in a big way. IMO this year’s team might be a better all around squad than last season’s. Congrats to both teams, it was a game for the ages.

    On a final note, to all the crybabies and excuse makers who claim to be Red Raider fans and also to all trollers and life’s losers who claim to be private school supporters (i.e., Education First/Too Meke 2)…grow up and take a cue from the players, coaches and mature fans. Conduct yourself with class and and quit the anonymous internet big man schtick. The kids act more like adults than you wannabe experts.


  5. Crazy Seeding November 19, 2017 2:57 pm

    Yep, excellent point. I forgot that, he did fumble before going down but evidently the refs had already blown the play dead.

    Never a good idea to complain about the officiating, it’s what losers do and displays poor sportsmanship.

    It was a great game. Kids played their hearts out on both sides. One team rose above the challenges they were faced with and they could have folded easily, the Cordiero fumble in the red zone on the 9 trying to get extra yardage, or the interception at the 2 for a touchback, SL could have folded, they didn’t. They found a way to win when things weren’t going their way. That’s what true champions do. Respect for those coaches and kids. They beat # 3 and # 2 in back to back weeks. They played an awesome second half in the Mililani game and they played great at time in this game but they didn’t complete the task and let Kahuku get back in the game. They were up 17 and they thought it was over. It wasn’t and they had a let down but they overcame and still pulled it out.


  6. 808 November 19, 2017 3:49 pm

    FYI on a thread back in October, Billy Hull mentioned that site finally blocked Education First. Hull said that user was going by at least three other screen names..BG Grad, phILHarmonic, RRFL living the lie and a few others. The guy also claimed he was some big timer but always avoided meeting up with other posters when pressed. Funny when internet heroes are exposed as the real life zeroes that they really are. Rule of Thumb…if you’re trying to impress total strangers on the internet with your so-called lifestyle, you probably don’t have one.


  7. Crazy Seeding November 19, 2017 3:54 pm

    808, if you think I have ever posted here before, I haven’t. I think I have made a total of about 6 posts on Hawaii Prep World the only thing I thought was jacked up was the seeding and I think it makes what SL did just that more impressive. If your comments weren’t directed at me, no issues.

    It’s all about the kids. Congrats to SL for winning a great game.


  8. anywaaaays!! November 19, 2017 8:01 pm

    Crazy Seeding/Education First: Spew all the hate you want to Kahuku. We all know where your loyalties lie: with the ILH Agenda. And that’s okay. Stay on the sidelines and watch next year when Red Raider Nation takes the koa trophy back to laie where it belongs. We’ll beat Saint Louis, the ILH Agenda, and even the rigged refs. You can just sit there behind your keyboard and spew your hatred for us. RRFL!


  9. 808 November 20, 2017 12:11 am

    Too Meke 2 = anywaaays imposter = Education First. Hope you find what you’re looking for in your everyday life and get tired of making a fool of yourself on this website. Try medical marijuana or Prozac.

    Mahalo to all the REAL posters and fans of Hawaii HS football. Great season, Happy Holidays to you all.


  10. Crazy Seeding November 20, 2017 7:08 am

    808, like I said, I have posted on a total of two threads starting in November this year about the time the seeding for the tournament came out. Hell I don’t even live in Hawaii anymore, I live on the mainland but occasionally come back to Oahu for work. My parents still live in Hawaii but I haven’t for a long time.

    I don’t have the time to routinely post on message boards and consequently don’t usually pay much attention to this stuff. Thanks for the heads up on this persona Too Meke/anywaays/Education first. Apparently he’s been kicked off here before and is probably why he is trying to depict me as some poster who used the handle education first. Nope. I have a total of less than ten total posts on Hawaii Prep World and this may be my last. Nothing to discuss anymore. I am a SL grad myself and I know the coaching staff, and just visited with them recently when I was home before the state tournament. I am happy to see that SL won, but to Kahuku’s credit they played a great game.

    I will always be convinced that the OIA and HHSAA had it out for them by stacking the deck against St. Louis. In a 4 team tourney, 1 gets 4 and 2 gets 3. I would bet a hefty sum that Kahuku looked past Waianae and prepared for SL for two weeks, which they wouldn’t have been able to do had they had to play Mililani again. So Mililani got hosed because I bet they could have beat Kahuku if they got to play them again but the more jacked up thing is that Kahuku got the benefit of being the # 1 seed without earning it…which is why they got caught with their pants down….and almost looked past Waianae which is why that game was way closer than it should have been.

    The fact that SL did what it did despite the stacked deck just makes this more sweet for the coaching staff and the kids.

    This team may end up as the greatest of all time because of that. Hard to compare across the years but the format may push them over the top for what the coaches and the kids accomplished.

    In any case, that’s my longwinded way of saying I am likely out of this process. Observation. There are some real haters out there. Truly unfortunate that some of the people on this board can’t have a honest discussion without all the vitriol and negativity. Blaming referees is simply classless. If anything I think SL may have gotten the worse end of the sum total of the calls but it’s part of the game. Winners find a way to win even when things aren’t going your way. The mark of a man, isn’t what he does when everything is going right, character is defined by what you do when things aren’t going right. SL overcame some mistakes, a let down and still figured out how to win when they didn’t play their best game and did it all with a stacked deck against them. Hats off to Cal and the coaching staff, as well as every kid on that team. Crusader strong!!

    Everyone will see the non calls offences against their team. There was plenty to go around. I think i have a reason why so many non calls were not called. On one particular play there was a face mask. Three flags came flying in at the same time. Three officials were all watching the same area? I believe that is why so many offenses were not called.

    A taunting call after a tackle was not called near the beginning of the game. If they had called that one, subsequent extra curricular activities might have been averted. The tackle just happened, did they close their eyes after the whistle?

    It was a good game, it just ended in St L favor. Congratulations on your 5th championship.
