Video: Radford at #10 Kaiser

Part 3 (post-game interviews)

I arrived at Kaiser Stadium thinking, this would be a prime opportunity for Radford, one of the most prolific offensive units in D-II history, to play its finest game. To achieve peak performance, even (or especially) against the team that was a disturbance in the force.

It was Kaiser that blemished Radford’s perfect record in blowout fashion. As a fan, I wanted to see both teams at their best. Maybe it wouldn’t be a 52-49 game, but a true, game-long challenge for Kaiser would be fantastic. Right?

But the Rams suited up without two key offensive players, Jameson Pasigan and Tobias Powell, because of injuries. They were missed in a big way. The Rams battled the best they could, but by the second quarter, Kaiser’s dominant defense and offensive line were in control. Final: Kaiser 51, Radford 3.

For the Cougars, the playoff win sealed a state-tournament berth and exorcised the demons of last year’s stunning playoff loss to Nanakuli — which ended Kaiser’s dream season. For defending OIA White champion Radford, a superb season came to a halt at the hands of a juggernaut, a Kaiser team that never wanted to be in Division II this fall.

I wish Kaiser could play Kahuku, Mililani, or Farrington. They already got beat by Campbell. What would Mililani do to Kalani, Waialua, Pearl City, etc…. . Miano is good, but he’ll get what he wished for in 2014.
