St. Francis’ Kekahuna steps up with Aina-Chaves out

By Jason Kaneshiro on September 1, 2018

St. Francis’ most prolific playmaker spent most of Friday night on a trainer’s table, his right ankle heavily wrapped. But before and after an injury to running back Jonan Aina-Chaves, the Saints defense set the tone for a 27-13 OIA-ILH Division II win over Pearl City. St. Francis junior Shepherd Kekahuna opened a dynamic two-way performance with a 57-yard interception return on Pearl City’s second play from scrimmage and finished with two of the Saints’ four picks. Tapena Tuitupou was […]

PREPPING for 2018: St. Francis Saints

By Nick Abramo on August 7, 2018

14TH IN A SERIES So close. Those two words describe the St. Francis Saints in football. They are always battling right to the end of the season but have yet to reach the promised land. The 2017 season ended with a devastating 13-12 loss to Damien in the ILH Division II championship game. A berth in the D-I state tournament was on the line. It was the second year in a row St. Francis was a whisker away from advancing […]

Aina-Chaves off to record-breaking start

By Brian McInnis on August 5, 2018

St. Francis and Radford lined up in customary handshake lines at the end of a competitive first meeting, a cross-league, cross-division game that went 28-21 to the Saints at John E. Velasco Stadium. They got about halfway through the postgame ritual before it got chippy, broke down, and players went their separate ways, gesturing at each other, slightly tarnishing the season opener for both teams. Head coaches Kip Akana and Lon Passos shook hands, though. That — and a couple of […]

GAME NIGHT 8/4: St. Francis/Radford

By Brian McInnis on August 4, 2018

St. Francis 28, Radford 21, FINAL Jonan Aina-Chaves with a school-record 263 yards rushing. I’ll double check the math soon, but that should stand. Time’s up. St. Francis picks up where it left off after last season’s 8-4 run to the ILH championship game. Radford showed promise; the Rams will get some wins this year. Radford with some costly penalties in the waning moments here. They’ve been unable to get the stop they need. Time dwindling … Rams might have […]
