By Christian Shimabuku on August 16, 2019

Oct. 19, 2018 and Feb. 14, 2019 are days that live in infamy for the St. Francis football program. The first date was when the Saints, who were 9-0 at the time, were forced to forfeit their season due to an ineligible player. The second date is when the school announced it was shutting its doors for good. Members of the 2018 team who still had eligibility left are scattered across Oahu. Thursday night’s matchup between Farrington and visiting Campbell […]

By Nick Abramo on August 16, 2019

Linebacker Jacob Saole Su’e was a shining star for Kapolei in a 34-6 loss to No. 1 Saint Louis on Thursday night at the Hurricanes’ home field.

Kapolei (2-1, 1-0 OIA Open) won its first two games of the season, against Castle and Waianae, before coming down to Earth against the three-time Open Division state champion Crusaders (1-0, 1-0 […]

Nu’usegi Afoa sparks Chargers’ defense

By Jason Kaneshiro on August 15, 2019

Nu’usegi Afoa may have found himself a new home. Up until two weeks ago, the Pearl City senior spent much of his time running backward as part of the Chargers’ secondary. But the coaches decided to give him a shot at charging into opposing backfields as a defensive end. The switch paid off on Thursday with Afoa — listed at 5 foot 9 and 160 pounds — contributing two highlight stops in Pearl City’s 33-0 OIA Division II win over […]

Jake Holtz’s poise, power spark No. 10 Damien over Radford

After spending much of the summer traveling to basketball camps and tournaments, the 6-foot-4 senior showed that his arm strength is good as ever on Thursday night. In a 34-12 win over Radford, No. 10 Damien showed that Holtz can make a defense pay dearly. Holtz hurled three TD passes — 43 yards to Makanale‘a Meyer, then 57 and 16 yards to Jarvis Natividad. On his […]
