2013 team page for D-I state champion Punahou There’s only one thing left for Punahou senior Larry Tuileta to accomplish in his high school career.

This is the third straight final for Punahou, which lost to Kahuku each of the last two seasons. Mililani is trying for its first-ever state […]

Trench Warfare 6: Kaumatule vs. Kamehameha

By Jerry Campany on October 31, 2013

Trench Warfare is going to have to take a different approach in this one, as Punahou’s Canton Kaumatule takes on Kamehameha guards Radson Jang, Joshua Ancheta and a host of others. Kaumatule has rarely played this year, but he doesn’t miss the big games. Kamehameha runs a host of blockers at the beast, making a 1-on-1 matchup difficult. All judging is on the 10-point must system and completely subjective. Round 1 Kaumatule starts out against Jang, a junior. He shed […]

Cosbie’s 1st season at Kamehameha a good one

By Billy Hull on October 30, 2013

In terms of trophies and titles, Kamehameha won’t have anything to show for coach Doug Cosbie‘s first season as head football coach. To say it wasn’t a success, however, would be just plain wrong. Kamehameha began the year regarded as the third-best ILH Division I team. When it’s all said and done, there’s a chance Kamehameha ends up ranked as the second-best team in the entire state when the final Star-Advertiser Top 10 poll comes out. The Warriors did it […]

By Paul Honda on October 28, 2013

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 (post game) Punahou won the ILH championship with a 38-12 win over Kamehameha. It is easy to forget, sometimes, how dominant this Kamehameha offense line and defense were this season. The Warriors have a grand total of two losses, and both came against No. 1 Punahou. It’s been a special year for ILH football. Punahou remains unbeaten after this 38-12 win over Kamehameha, and this follows a string of games that included a trip […]

Video: #1 Punahou vs. #2 Kamehameha

By Paul Honda on September 16, 2013

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Defense wins championships. Defense wins mid-season showdowns, too. Punahou 24, Kamehameha 0. Factor in these noteworthy events: Kamehameha’s opening drive stalled near the goal line, disrupted by a delay-of-game penalty, and finished with a missed field-goal try. Later, a breakaway run by prolific running back Brandon Kahookele was stopped by hustling Punahou defenders in the red zone. Again, no points for the Warriors. Finally, a goal-line stand by Punahou in the final minute. Everything […]

By Paul Honda on September 14, 2013

8:02 p.m. We’re a few minutes away from kickoff. Kamehameha in navy blue jerseys, pants and helmets. Punahou in white jerseys, pants and blue helmet. Good crowd here at Aloha Stadium. Canton Kaumatule looked good in pre-game warmups. 8:10 p.m. Punahou misses two opportunities: Larry Tuileta missed a wide-open receiver at the pylon, and was just a bit off on a screen pass to Kotoni Sekona on a big blitz by Kamehameha. Charles McDonald was short on a 47-yard field-goal […]

Punahou-Kamehameha a pivotal game

By Jason Kaneshiro on September 9, 2013

Punahou didn’t wait very long after Saturday’s win over Damien to start preparing for a matchup with second-ranked Kamehameha. “We’re watching film right now,” quarterback Larry Tuileta said before heading to the locker room following the 48-0 victory at Alexander Field. Punahou (3-0, 1-0 ILH) edged Kamehameha (5-0, 2-0) by a single point for the top spot in last week’s Star-Advertiser rankings, and Saturday’s game — the finale of an ILH tripleheader at Aloha Stadium — will be a pivotal point […]
