GAME NIGHT 10/19: Campbell/Kahuku

No. 4 Kahuku 46, No. 5 Campbell 0


FINAL. Red Raiders advance to the OIA Open title game against Mililani next Saturday at Aloha Stadium.

Sailele Lafoga looks pumped up as he recovers a fumble for Campbell. Despite the score, looks like the kids are having fun out there.

The ball is popping out seemingly every other play as it is a mess out there on the field. Sabers punt.

Sophomore Kelsyn Tangaro-Kanoa breaks off a 99-YARD TOUCHDOWN RUN for Kahuku on his first carry of the game. 46-0, KAH, 9:21, Q4.

Campbell punts to start the fourth quarter and the rain comes pouring down again.


Kenai Liua sacks Hipa to end the third quarter. Running clock has sped this game up.

Rain has stopped falling as Sabers start their next drive. Without Jonan Aina-Chaves and Titus Mokiao-Atimalala, it continues to be rough going but Zavier Ceruti with a 25-yard catch to put the ball out near the 40. Cambell gets Kahuku to jump on third down and it’s a first down into Kahuku territory. Hipa pressures by two defenders and gets out of a sack but then makes a poor throw off his back foot and Mana Fonoimoana-Vaomu goes and gets it and takes it to the house. 63-yard pick-six for Kahuku. 39-0, 3:59, Q3.

(10:08) Matagi goes slipping and sliding on the carry as this field is an absolute mess now. Kahuku pounding the rock, but a block-in-the-back penalty wipes out a TD run by Tiger Adolpho on the bootleg. Adam Requilman boots a 34-yard field goal in tough conditions. 32-0, KAH, 7:03, Q3.

Tamatoa Mokiao-Atimalala can’t catch the punt and Kingston Jones gets it for Kahuku.

(11:48 on clock) Kahuku gets the ball first on its 38. Mariteragi at QB. Rain is coming down hard to start the second half. Quickly third-and-long. Carson Murakami nearly comes up with a pick. Sabers force a three-and-out.

8:06: Mana Fonoimoana-Vaomu intercepts a Hipa pass on the 4 and returns it to the 30. Kahuku takes a knee and the half ends.

8:05: Campbell driving. Ball at the Kahuku 10, thanks in part to a Pokii Adkins-Kupukaa 15-yard reception from Hipa. 0:15 left in second quarter. Ball at the Red Raiders’ 20.

7:59: On the next play, Matagi goes around left end for a 14-yard TD. Requilman’s extra-point try is wide left. KAHUKU 29, CAMPBELL 0, 1:45 left in second quarter.

7:58: On first down from his 26, Hipa throws a long pass that is picked off by Kahuku’s Tomasi Pasi. He returns it 49 yards for an apparent touchdown, but a holding call gives the Red Raiders the ball at the 14.

7:52: Two sacks by Kahuku’s Enese Tonga puts a crimp on the Sabers’ drive. The Red Raiders can’t move either and punt it away.

7:49: Campbell on the move, thanks to a 15-yard Hipa pass to Ceruti.

7:45: Kahuku gets to its 42 and punts it away. Mana Fonoimoana-Vaomu’s 55-yard punt goes out of bounds at the Campbell 3.

7:43: Tiger Adolpho enters the game at QB for Kahuku and picks up a first down with a 13-yard run.

7:40: Campbell punts on its next possession. Kahuku ball at its 12.

7:34: So far, on the playing field there is no sign of the Sabers’ Titus Mokiao-Atimalala, the star wide receiver, and Jonan Aina-Chaves, the hard-charging running back.

7:32: On the next play, quarterback Jason Mariteragi throws his first pass of the night and it’s a 22-yard touchdown to a wide-open Lokana Enos in the flat. Requilman kicks the extra point. KAHUKU 23, CAMPBELL 0, 11:44 left in second quarter.

7:31: Ah You tips a Hipa pass high in the air and cradles it for an interception. Red Raiders ball at the Campbell 22.


7:28: First quarter ends.

7:24: Zealand Matagi gets the ball. He hits the hole on the left side and picks up 10 yards and is hit by what looks like a sure tackle. But he stays on his feet, breaks the tackle and is off to the races for a 90-yard touchdown. Adam Requilman makes the extra point. KAHUKU 16, CAMPBELL 0, 0:14 left in first quarter.

7:22: There is a trade of punts, and now it’s Kakuku’s ball, first and 10 at its 10-yard line.

7:20: A 50-yard Blaine Hipa to Zavier Ceruti connection brings the ball for the Sabers to the Kahuku 12. But on the next play, the Sabers fumble and the ball is recovered by the Red Raiders’ Joseph Taufa.

7:06: Tomasi Pasi returns the kick 65 yards all the way to the Sabers 5. Three plays later, Zion Ah You goes in for a 1-yard touchdown. Adam Requilman kicks the extra point. KAHUKU 9, CAMPBELL 0, 6:50 left in first quarter.

7:00: Ace Kaufusi of the Red Raiders wraps up Campbell running back Chasen Torres for a loss. Torres fumbles and the ball rolls toward the end zone, goes in the end zone and out the side of the end zone for a safety. KAHUKU 2, CAMPBELL 0, 7:35 to go in first quarter.

6:55: The Sabers go three and out and punt it away. Kahuku ball at the Campbell 47.

Pregame notes

6:53: Campbell will receive. Kahuku is defending the makai end zone.

6:48: The national anthem, Hawaii Pono’i and the alma maters are done. The captains are about to go to midfield. Kickoff is a few minutes away.

6:32: Kahuku beat Waianae 18-12 in the JV game.

    campbell qb gettin exposed without his money man

  5. ilh October 19, 2019 10:12 pm

    Only two good teams in the Open Division in the OIA, Mililani and Kahuku, everyone else should be in Division 1.

  6. Lou October 19, 2019 10:31 pm

    Campbell still in States.

  7. Oia October 19, 2019 10:53 pm

    Same as ILH ONLY 2 good teams in there open

  8. Choloropicrin October 20, 2019 12:33 am

    Campbell needs a good recruiting class next year cause the JV didn’t look great this season.

    I agree with someone above, Mililani and Kahuku the only OIA Open teams worthy. The rest belongs in D1. They should have the top two in OIA and ILH play for the open title.


    ILH Champ 1st Seed
    OIA Champ 2nd Seed
    OIA #2 3rd seed
    OIA #3 4th seed

  9. Hau’ulaBoy October 20, 2019 9:41 am

    Brah?! 99yrds from a sophomore. Longest run in program history.

  10. Hau’ulaBoy October 20, 2019 9:47 am

    Future looks bright for this young Red Raiders. The JV looks pretty good too. Hopefully the staff can progress and get better. And then it would be Red Alert for the rest of the state.

  11. ILH October 20, 2019 1:32 pm


  12. Hau’ulaBoy October 20, 2019 4:47 pm


  13. Hau’ulaBoy October 20, 2019 4:53 pm

    We should be playing “ sniff, sniff “ Waaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!! “ sniff, sniff “ waaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!! ( kicking rocks with head down) waaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!

  14. Hau’ulaBoy October 20, 2019 4:57 pm

    I pay all that money!!! My kid should be in the state tournament!!! Entitled people don’t always get what they want.

  15. Bigdog October 20, 2019 11:46 pm

    @ ilh
    Then just have Kahuku, St. Louis, Mililani and Punahou play 3x during the season and beat up on each other. Don’t think he coaches would go for that!

  16. Hehehe October 21, 2019 4:53 am

    Farrington will beeet kam bowl then everybody gets into one uproar, especially ILH! Hahaha!

  17. Entitled? October 21, 2019 8:26 am


    You’re right. Entitled people don’t always get what they want nor should they.

    But it appears that teams will be in the state tournament because they are “entitled” to based on their league affiliation and NOT because of their season merits.

    Just saying….

  18. Entitled? October 21, 2019 8:52 am

    (addendum to prior comment/post)

    Don’t get me wrong, if the 3 ILH teams lost 3-4 games each and were ranked #5-#7 in the state, then no ILH teams deserve or entitled to be in the state tournament.

  19. ILH October 21, 2019 12:34 pm

    Peanut Buttah Rolls-

    Coach Carvalho is looking great about now, huh?
    I think I even seen some people at windward mall wearing their Kahuku shirts again.
    Yessuh Blessuh.

    What are your thoughts against Milville?
    Get chance?? I certainly think so. STeams is looking great, offense is eating up the clock and scoring, and the defense is stifling as ever.
    Just make sure the coaches dance AFTER they win and not before.

  20. Hau’ulaBoy October 21, 2019 1:00 pm

    Three teams in your league. Only two are good. Not great yet. Season not over. So mathematically two teams from a three team conference get in makes no sense. ILH get all the money all the players from the whole state. And you like eat your cake too. Maybe they should have forced the other teams with the same advantages as them to play in the same league.

  21. Hau’ulaBoy October 21, 2019 1:05 pm

    If you say they can’t compete. Iolani, Damien, and PAC 5. Then that’s on them. Iolani won how many D2 titles? They should have been D1.

  22. ILH October 21, 2019 1:58 pm

    Peanut Buttah Rolls-

    I would have never pegged you as one of those that complained about recruiting, advantages, $$, blah, blah, blah. Especially with Hau’ula in your name.
    You always struck me as a line up against whoever, whenever, however kind of person.


    Where have all the heroes gone?
    To grab Peanut Buttah Rolls from Papa Ole’s……………..

  23. Hau’ulaBoy October 21, 2019 6:01 pm

    I wasn’t crying. I was responding to a cry baby. I say let them have all that. I no care. But don’t come crying on here when it’s your own league that should step up. Not OIA. If ILH had all their teams in division one, then I would have no problem with ILH getting two in.

  24. Hau’ulaBoy October 21, 2019 6:08 pm

    Iolani won how many titles in D2. But they complain they can’t compete. You know who has about same size players and numbers? Castle! And they only move to D1. Not D2. They always would play Kahuku and play tough when there was east and west.

  25. Hau’ulaBoy October 21, 2019 6:17 pm

    I’m no hero. Just a Hau’ulaBoy stating his opinion. Sorry to let you down.

    P.S. I no scared anybody. Haha.
    Anywhere, anytime. Haha.

  26. Hau’ulaBoy October 21, 2019 6:23 pm

    My dad loves Papa Ole’s. Me not so much. To long the wait. But my dad lucky. He gets special treatment. He no need wait. Haha. RR4L, Hau’ulaBoy born breed and true.

  27. Entitled? October 22, 2019 1:13 am

    Who’s crying? I only read whining.

    1) Clarified your “entitlement” issue.
    2) Go back and read my 2 posts. There’s no
    crying about anything.
    3) This is the state championship made up of
    4 teams. Who cares abt the # of OIA or
    ILH are in the division. Don’t you want to
    see the top 4 teams just battle it out?
    4) When it comes to the state tournament, OIA
    and ILH shouldn’t matter.
    5) Should a 5-5 team deserve/entitled/or
    whatever you want to call it be in this
    state tournament?
    6) Hopefully this can be corrected in the future.
    If not, then you’re right, throw damien and
    iolani in the open so we can see 2 OIA and
    2 ILH in the state tournament. But this
    could potentially still be flawed by not having
    the 4 best teams in the state tournament.

  28. Hau’ulaBoy October 22, 2019 3:59 am

    True. And I never said you was crying. I was responding to the guy in all caps. Anyhow. It’s been fun. RR4L

  29. Hau’ulaBoy October 22, 2019 8:25 am

    Sole, I no drink wine. Only Vailima. But it was fun well it lasted. But I have to say peace out on this one.
