  3. Jus Saying October 21, 2017 7:18 pm

  4. 88 October 21, 2017 7:23 pm

    Suuuure they are. I got some magic beans for you.

  5. ilh October 21, 2017 7:32 pm

    It doesn’t matter how many players on the team, this is not the NFL, too bad you crying about how many players on the team, that is just the way it is.

    “This Saint Louis team recruits more from Kahuku than last year’s team, Beware”

    I fixed it for you. RRFL! Rooted not recruited!

  7. ilh October 21, 2017 7:47 pm

    Beware of Mililani Kahuku, , tough team you facing this time,

  8. ilh October 21, 2017 8:16 pm

    how many players from Kahuku is on the Crusaders team, it sure is not the entire team, and why those players go to St. Louis, for a better Education and more exposer.

  9. There is only one Me October 21, 2017 9:30 pm

    Great game. Punahou’s current athletic mercenaries better be careful or there scholies will be taken away and given to the other North Shore studs waiting for their all expenses paid ride on the Buffanblu train.

  10. anywaaaays!! October 21, 2017 11:39 pm

    STL defense is too deep for any Hawaii team, remember we beat a good Narborne team.

  11. anywaaaays!! October 22, 2017 8:33 am

    No. They go to saint lulu because of the ILH recruiting agenda and the media. They brainwash our kids into thinking that the only thing that matters is “quality of education” and the name of your school and what college you go to, or even if you go to college. They never talk about the pride in staying home and representing your community and making your family proud.

    The only reason why anybody even goes to ILH schools is because of their football team. Without their football teams, they are NOTHING. that’s why they recruit so much from kahuku and steal our kids.

    But that’s okay because no matter what, Kahuku is rooted not recruited, and you guys will see how powerful hometown communities are when we DEMOLISH Saint Lulu and the rest of the ILH agenda.

    Keep hating! We’ve been hated all our lives but we keep winning! RRFL!

  12. anywaaaays!! October 22, 2017 8:36 am

    Like slavery in the south, ILH was built on the backs of all the polynesian children they stole from their communities. People need to wake up. They’re using our kids and breaking apart our communities. Education is nothing if you don’t know where you’re from.

    Rooted not recruited! RRFL!

  13. Awrite!! October 22, 2017 12:31 pm

    Anywaaaays LOL, you speak like a true Punahou alum bitter about your team not making the playoffs. Keep posing as a Kahuku fan because you are just feeding Kahuku more mana entering into the OIA title game. All your bad karma is actually working against Kahukus opponents.

    Anywaaaays = EducationFirst = Punahou alum

  14. Mililani Hammer October 22, 2017 12:55 pm

    Ohh my God! anywaaaays, like the slavery in the south?? Lol…that’s where your brains went farrrr south.. and didn’t I tell you to put that ilh agenda up your asterisk on another post!!! Put it back and leave st.louis alone,there doing just fine.
    Congratulations on the win!!

  15. RR4LIFE living the lie October 22, 2017 9:22 pm

    You doing a fine enough job destroying your own community Anywaaaays! Give them something to stay home to and they might. You know you have nothing to offer when a kid chooses(notice I said chooses and not forced) to take a long bus ride to and from school to go somewhere else. You and people like you are the ones destroying communities.
