Kaiser’s Ethan Lynch is the latest Cougar to come up big during 4-0 start

By Noelle Kakimoto on August 25, 2019

The Kaiser Cougars won their first three games in commanding fashion and continued the trend Saturday night. While the Cougars’ offense has rotated through athletes both at running back and receiver, junior Ethan Lynch was the star of the show in a 42-0 shutout of McKinley at Ticky Vasconcellos Stadium. In the previous three games, Lynch’s numbers were on par with many of the other running backs, recording eight carries for 58 yards and one TD as well as three […]


Castle earns first win but still has a lot of work to do

By Christian Shimabuku on August 25, 2019

Coach John Hao was frustrated by Castle’s winless start to the season entering Saturday night’s home matchup against Aiea. He believed the team hadn’t played anywhere near its potential. After the Knights’ 26-16 win over Na Alii for win No. 1 of the young season, Hao still wasn’t satisfied. “It’s not a weight off the shoulder but it feels good to head in the right direction,” he said. “We had an opportunity against Kapolei, and then when we played Waipahu […]

Kahuku’s horses on O-line thump Waianae in second half

By Nick Abramo on August 24, 2019

No. 5 Kahuku is known for a bruising running game, but it hasn’t always been there this season. No worries now. It showed up in a huge way in the second half of Saturday night’s 32-0 victory over Waianae at Carleton Weimer Field. The offensive line surge came at the right time. The OIA rivals were in a 0-0 deadlock at intermission. It seemed like the team that decided to play more smashmouth football in the second half would take […]

By Kyle Sakamoto on August 24, 2019

Mililani quarterback Brendyn Agbayani was replaced to start the second quarter Saturday against host Farrington. Instead of losing focus, he stayed mentally in the game and came back ready to go in the second half of the second-ranked Trojans’ 35-0 victory over the Governors. Agbayani, who threw two interceptions in the first quarter, guided the Trojans to touchdowns on three of their first four possessions after halftime in an OIA Open Division game. “I was reading the defense, pre-snap reading […]

No. 3 Punahou gives up first TD in otherwise masterful performance at No. 8 Kapolei

By Paul Honda on August 24, 2019

The streak has ended for Punahou’s surprisingly effective defensive unit. After going three games without permitting a touchdown, the third-ranked Buffanblu were ahead 24-0 late in the first half at Kapolei when Hurricanes running back Jayven Reyes scored on a 5-yard run. Punahou had shut out Kailua and Farrington, and Kamehameha scored only on a safety and a field goal as the Buffanblu racked up a 3-0 record. Punahou is now 4-0 (3-0 ILH Open) after Saturday night’s 44-13 win […]

‘Iolani wins Father Bray game but still struggles to close games

By Billy Hull on August 24, 2019

‘Iolani coach Wendell Look was very happy with the Raiders’ 20-point third quarter that helped put away Kaimuki 34-24 in the Father Bray Classic on Saturday at Kozuki Stadium. As for the final 12 minutes, well, that’s becoming a concern. “I didn’t like how we finished the game,” Look said after ‘Iolani fumbled on the Kaimuki 2-yard line in the fourth quarter and failed to score on its final three drives. “These guys need to learn that they can’t finish […]
