By Paul Honda on October 5, 2019

Leilehua played some of its best football of the year in what could be a state-tournament rematch down the road — […]

By Christian Shimabuku on September 21, 2019

No. 8 Leilehua kept itself in the race for the top seed in the OIA Division I playoffs with a resounding 41-13 win over Castle in a game in which the visiting Mules (6-1, 4-1 OIA D-I) repeatedly pounced on the Knights’ (2-4, 2-2) errors. Unfortunately for Leilehua, it doesn’t control its own destiny to get said top seed. Its lone loss came to No. 6 Moanalua (5-0, 3-0), a narrow 24-20 defeat at home on Aug. 30. But on […]

No. 10 Leilehua finds the right combo on offense to beat No. 7 Damien

By Jason Kaneshiro on September 14, 2019

Leilehua head coach Mark Kurisu took a deep breath, found a seat on the bench and nodded toward former Mules quarterback Andrew Manley. “You should be interviewing Coach Drew,” an understandably drained Kurisu said after the 10th-ranked Mules’ 34-26 win over No. 7 Damien on Friday night. Kurisu’s deference to the Mules’ offensive coordinator was rooted in a performance in which senior quarterback Kekoa Turangan threw for three touchdowns and junior receiver Kalei Akagi, who began the season as the […]
