    Waianae’s defense will be the game changer. The only way Waianae loses is if they shoot themselves in the foot.

    Govs turn in their pads tonight. No offense or weapons like the past years. Okimoto offensive play calling to easy for Waianae. Defensively the Govs are undersized, Waianae will run the rock easy win for the W!!

    Wow, Farrington getting desperate on offense using 4 linemen and trickeration
