    I got Leilehua, Kahuku, Damien, and Maryknoll winning round 1. Kamehameha, Kahuku, Moanalua, and Maryknoll in the quarters. Then I got a Kamehameha-Maryknoll final where Kamehameha comes out on top.

    Moanalua will lose the first time they meet an ILH Team.

    Moanalua beats Damien.

    Damien is gonna ransack Moanalua. I don’t know what people have seen in Moanalua that makes them think they’re gonna handle any of the ILH teams. They got a crappy draw.
