Anuenue forfeits sixth straight game

Anuenue is still practicing as a football team, but Na Koa has not been playing in any games due to a lack of available players.

Oahu Interscholastic Association football coordinator Harold Tanaka said on Wednesday that the team forfeited its sixth straight game, which was scheduled for Friday against Nanakuli at Roosevelt’s Ticky Vasconcellos Stadium.

After a 62-0 season-opening, nonleague loss to St. Francis, Anuenue’s other forfeits were to Radford, Kaimuki, Kalaheo, Pearl City and Kalani.

Na Koa (which will be 0-7 overall and 0-6 in OIA Division II when the 2-0 forfeit to Nanakuli is officially added to the standings) have two scheduled games remaining — Sept. 25 at Roosevelt and Oct. 3 at Waialua. It’s not known if they will field a team for those games.

Tanaka said he believes that Anunenue was down to 16 players, or a number close to that, many of them underclassmen. A call on Wednesday to Anuenue head coach Kelii Pio Adams was not returned immediately.
