THIRD QUARTER

Punt takes a Kahuku bounce and Saint Louis will start from its 23. Tagovailoa has an open receiver down the left hash but his bullet is overthrown. Had a chance to be a big play, maybe six. Instead it’s third-and-3 at the 30. False start on Saint Louis first. Third-and-8 and Tagovailoa hits Kekahuna-Kalawe for 13 yards and a first down. Just a ridiculous deep ball to Panoke for 40 yards. Saint Louis threatening again. Big third-and-7 play coming up.

Third-and-2 and Vakapuna is stopped by Sandry to force a punt.

Possible bad injury on the field as Saint Louis LB Noa Purcell is down. He is able to get off the field with help from his teammates, but that’s two starting linebackers out for the Crusaders. Purcell bleeding from above and below right eye according to our Christian Shimabuku.

Saint Louis has had three trips inside the Kahuku 20 and come up with only six points on two field goals.

Tagovailoa’s pass is high off a receiver’s hands and Kesi Ah-Hoy comes up with the INT. Refs are mulling it over and they call it an INT. First INT of Tagovailoa for the Red Raiders.

    Sorry but it was shown how Sol Jay is not a Qb. Don’t give up on your dreams. At least you have a scholarship as an Athlete!

    Oh and Stokes??? Exactly why he doesn’t have scholarship cause he is too slow and that’s why he got burnt all night. Sorry but when you play a weak schedule every week, you will get interceptions all night. Go JC route! Fa Miki!


  2. QUIET November 20, 2016 6:31 pm

    What happened to all the Kahuku people talking about the age rule and all that being an advantage during the prep bowl era? What u got to say now? What? U guys paint horses and hang flags from your big ass trucks and What? Y’all got smoked last night…..btw when has Kahuku ever produced a five star product? When have they ever produced a top notch NFL player? Let’s hear it? I heard someone before the game telling someone that st louis defense was blah, offense blah, and special teams blah. Well who was blah last night? And st louis stuffed you guys without two top LBs. Btw….Stokes….u got burned by someone who never had a receiving TD this season. Kaniho maybe you shouldve played basketball instead….u got hopppps! Haha….best defense ever? I guess that question has been answered. Must’ve been a long ride home last night for the North Shore. This is for all the people who talked shit before the game last night.

    This forum is crazier than the Hawaii Warrior World.


  4. Cabs November 20, 2016 6:58 pm

    Thank you Kahuku fans for a wonderful season. See you guys next season since we all know that’s the only time you guys come out.


  5. 88 November 20, 2016 7:22 pm

    Yeah and the only time you come out is when you finally win. Thank you for waiting untill after the winner was decided to grow a pair and post.


  6. 88 November 20, 2016 7:24 pm

    @Quite remember a Super Bowl Champion named Chris Kemoeatu?


  7. Jeezy33 November 20, 2016 7:44 pm

    88 can’t handle the heat. But that’s what happens when you run your mouth about ILH conspiracies, recruiting, how kahuku is god’s gift to football, and slandering other coaches, players, and fans. Eat your humble pie, son and shut your mouth. You’re making yourself look worse than you usually do.


  8. Jeezy33 November 20, 2016 7:54 pm

    LOL! You know why they waited, 88? They’re not posting because st louis won. They’re posting because you finally got what was coming to you with your arrogant attitude and your crap talking of everyone and everything. They’re not so much trying to hate on kahuku but more trying to hate on you and all the kahuku fans who are just like you. because you know had kahuku won, you would be running your mouth even more bashing ILH, bashing other teams, bashing other people, bashing HHSAA, and so on.

    How’s your humble pie tasting, 88? I hope it’s as delicious as your tears look.


  9. Alpha November 20, 2016 7:55 pm

    So what’s everyone’s predictions next year guys? St. Louis repeat? Kahuku revenge? Or will another ILH/OIA school emerge? Kahuku loses alot of key players, St. Louis loses Tua, we shall see. . . Congrats Tuaman manaia lo siva. . . Manuia. Cheehoooo. . . https://www.instagram.com/p/BNBmrF3AEM7/


  10. Pun Alum 95 November 20, 2016 7:55 pm

    So much anger on here. Isn’t this forum supposed to be to politely discuss sports involving student athletes? When did it turn from supporting student athletes for doing something positive to adults acting immature.


  11. 88 is da fool November 20, 2016 8:02 pm

    No 1 has a problem with kahuku football. Dey some solid usos. Wat we all no like is how u run ur mouth n how dumb u are. U don’t even understand wat da word overrated means. And I agree wit jeezy dat u talk so much shit. N most of da time u don’t know wat da hell ur talkin about. Cuz u talk all kine crap and every1 on here knows u don’t know shit. U come on dese boards cuz it’s da closest u can eva come to being involved in football. We not dumb. We all know u wish u wuz 1 cosch but ain’t. So simple u.


  12. ILH November 20, 2016 8:06 pm

    Crusaders Humble in WIN, Cal Lee and staff not dead yet, remarkable win, Bishop Gorman and Saint Louis (Catholic Private School) just to powerful for Kahuku this year, Coaches at St. Louis prepared well for this game. Tua, the Man. Now where is all the negative people before the start of this game went, can’t speak now, Mission Accomplished. St. Louis New #15

    The whole “DB U”(what they call themselves) was “M.I.A. U”. Nonfactor all game. In fact Ah Hoy is too slow to play saftey. He’s no help up top to a freshman CB. That side of the secondary was getting beat all game & he got “Tua’d” a few times in the open field.
    RR offense was everything I expected. Fronting in a weak league that they can throw the ball & have their way against below mediocre talent. Than back to being one dimensional when it counted. With a St Louis defense running thin, RR still couldn’t do anything to gain momentum.


  16. Joe November 20, 2016 9:17 pm

    Tell em heartless prick, one dimensional against weak ass schools, shit week in week out with the top ILH schools would be very rough for them, and that’s real talk, beating on smaller schools cause they just bigger and stronger that’s all, no strategy, it’s a shame they represented Hawaii last year as state champions with a one dimensional smash mouth football Mickey Mouse offensive who can only pick on the little guys, oh yah and last years win against St. Louis they had 7 turnovers , that’s y kahuku won it was given to them, back to reality , lava flow goin home in droopy faces

    Take it easy with all that Mickey Mouse talk nd it was a shame they represented Hawaii as champs. If your that much better as a coach go apply. Don’t discredit what Kahuku accomplished last season. Don’t make an excuse for St. Louis losing last year, I’m sure Coach Lee don’t need you to speak on their behalf. I’m not a Kahuku alumni nor am I from this state, but if your a private school product then I’m sorry but your parents should get their refund, the kind of trash you talk you might as well have gone to a public school. . . All that money spent on education just to come on here swearing and to gang up on the losing school, so the kids can read what the ilh has done for you. . . Good job Joe. . .


  18. Chloropicrin November 20, 2016 9:49 pm

    Kahuku recruiting class didn’t live up to the hype as previous years. All that talent from Samoa, TX and Utah couldn’t get them koa trophy 9.

    Can you prove they recruit? What about ilh, can anyone prove that they recruit?. . . The only school I know of that recruits is BG. . . All this recruit talk going back and forth but no proof behind the claims. . . I just want to know, because that’s a pretty big accusation.


  20. Pick Six November 20, 2016 10:01 pm

    Congrats to the Brotherhood……the Brotherhood of Zebras. Final score Kahuku 14 St Loius 13 Referees 17.

    So maybe the refs should go home with the Koa trophy.

    @ILH, Crusaders win with class but sure don’t lose with class. Our boys loss and stuck around for the trophy ceremony. That’s how it’s done, win or lose.

    As far as community support, there is no other like Red Raider Nation. Its not even close. Thank you to the football boys and the Nation for another exciting year of highschool football!

    To the Farrington poser Overrated class of 99′. Shaddup! The Govs are the most overrated team every year. Just continue to take that butt whooping we give you every year and know your role in the OIA “gate keepers”.


  21. rrforlifebaby November 20, 2016 11:03 pm

    So much negativity. I doubt if some of these posters are actually Kahuku fans. I hope those of you calling out high school kids are in high school yourselves or at least under 21, cause it’s pretty sad if you’re an adult and doing it.
    St Louis was the better team last night. But it was sickening to see Cal Lee so giddy last night after being such a bitch when they lost last year.
    But, that takes nothing away from Tua playing a great game.
    But, since someone mentioned how Kahuku was given the game last year because of turnovers, then you’re welcome; but see, the difference between last year and this year, Big Red forced those turnovers. This years turn over at the goal line was truly a gift. So maybe instead of spewing hate, some of you should be praying hallelujah! Lol.

    Great season, Congrats to the Crusaders. Good luck to all the seniors from all the schools who will be repping the 808 at the next level.
    Back to work Red Raider underclassmen for next year.

    Much luv to all the posters for showing your passion. Until next year.
    RRFL! Go Big Red!

    Back to work Big Red


  22. 88 November 20, 2016 11:10 pm

    @Quite- this is what you asked, “When have they ever produced a top notch NFL player? Let’s hear it?” and I answered.
    @Joe Its a shame that no one could beat last years MickeyMouse offense. Kahuku won because of 7 turnovers? Did St. Louis just give those turn overs to Kahuku or did kahuku have to fight to get those turn overs. This Championship game was decided by one play in the 4th quarter. A fumble at the 1 yard line which swung the momentum in St. Louis favor. And don’t give me this weak division crap because how did Punahou, Kamehameha and Iolani fair against teams Kahuku crushed in the OIA? Thats what i thought. Congratulations once again to the Crusaders, ILH and LeeBoy on winning States. The rest of you poser can go eat a DICK.


  23. Kailua Boys November 21, 2016 12:40 am

    Having watched both games live I noticed both games it was anybody’s game. Until the very end the final score didn’t tell how the game go. Tua was marching last year when a couple random fumbles turned the tide.

    This year that fumble at the goal line def helped build the momentum. In a game full of momentum swings, sometimes thats all it takes.


  24. Kailua Boys November 21, 2016 12:41 am

    There needs to be ONE division with all the open teams in it. Big 3 from the ilh and the top 5 oia.

    if kahuku just plays weak teams its hard for them to be truly tested and for them to grow. If anybody would want to create an open regular division it should be the red raiders.

    Its tough to see talent like there QB just not being properly developed when all you do is call run plays. I guess you got to decide what you want for your program? Do you want to just run over lesser opponents or develop players for the next level? That’s a tough question.


  25. DOMEZ November 21, 2016 5:39 am

    The reffs was a big factor so shuchoass, you fakaz ova rated…..


  26. KaiTae November 21, 2016 5:43 am

    Both teams are OVER RATED! Haha all yall are garbage just stay in Hawaii and play each other cause ya’ll cant hang with the big boys! UtahFootball>HawaiiFootball bring your best teams to play our average teams and you’ll get smacked out here or there! Hawaii football is seriously a joke!


  27. The Rim November 21, 2016 6:17 am

    Every year is different. Both teams deserved to be in the championship game with St. Louis coming out on top, this year. With all the negative talk going on by fans and parents, the kids have no fault in this. Some egos are hurt because of the trash talking that led up to the game but the game is over now and we should give credit where credit is due. Congratulations St. Louis. I hope they revamp the schedule so that teams are ranked accordingly and keep the three tier playoff for parity.

    @QUIET, INCREDIBLY DISRESPECTFUL TO THOSE KIDS BY CALLING THEM OUT INDIVIDUALLY! IM SURE SOME ST LOUIS FANS WOULD GIVE YOU A SMACK DOWN FOR TALKING LIKE THAT!


  29. QUIET November 21, 2016 7:57 am

    @oia #100……of course I’m gonna call them out individually. Stokes is supposed to be the #1 cornerback with Kaniho in the state and
    look what happened? I’m sure if Tua didn’t perform all of you would’ve singled him out too….so what a the difference? It’s not disrespectful. And blame the loss on your coach this time because he made a big mistake putting Kekaula in the middle and his brother to cover the corner. Because of that switch, Kaniho was practically taken out of the game and was a non factor.

    RR folks on this forum are having a hard time reading what others are posting. What they should be taking from it is the message that you should be humble in winning instead of arrogant and disrespectful. Now you all got excuses (referees) and you’re reaching back to history to defend yourselves. It’s sad when you can’t just take the loss and the crap talk especially when you all been doing it for the last two seasons. You deride Coach Lee for enjoying the victory? You all need help! Let me know if you need the number to the suicide hotline…

    @Joe Its a shame that no one could beat last years MickeyMouse offense. Kahuku won because of 7 turnovers? Did St. Louis just give those turn overs to Kahuku or did kahuku have to fight to get those turn overs. ”

    Stop living in the past, 88. Eat your humble pie.

    HAHAHA! Pie Police! Now that’s funny! I literally just spit up my juice. 88, that is the funniest thing I ever heard! You are the next Lenny Bruce! You are on your way!

    Now I hear people sayn , even kahuku fans saying kinda hard when u one dimensional, thank you, they hit that right on the dot ONE DIMENSIONAL, why? Because they too used to running over the small schools , and they dont just get by, they demolish, and when u used to doin that kinda things u stick with it, now when u play better competition it’s not that easy. Lucky St. Louis never go up 14-0 cause the game would’ve got outta hand , cause being from behind clock grinding running the ball doesn’t work , and when you try to pass which they don’t know how , it would’ve got ugly. Kahukus like an SEC team playing in the mountain west. Walk in every year to the tourney. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll admit this kahuku is the only OIA team that can actually play with the top ILH, my point is week in week out against top schools won’t be easy and that’s y I say kahuku would never go undefeated neither will some of the ILH if it was like that. And I hate hearing 23 wins in a row against Hawaii schools lol 22 of em was OIA. System gotta change

    Gaylord (88) cannot help the way he is guys. How would you feel if:

    1) You are 47, live in your mom’s basement, and only form of entertainment is blogging about Kahuku Football.

    2) Your only form of human interaction is on the Hawaii Prep World Blog.

    3) You are the biggest idiot in Hawaii.

    4) You desperately want to be a part of Kahuku Football but are not allowed to and the team doesn’t want you.

    5) The closest you ever got to playing football was playing Tecmo Bowl back in the late 80’s when he was in high school.

    So as you can tell, he is a very unhappy and angry human being. I think we all need to treat him nicer and stop picking on him, with my self being the first one to do so.

    I have to say I am pretty honored. They say, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”

    Well thank you Gaylord! I admire how you are using my tactics now. Over the past few months I notice that you like to copycat me. Thank you!

    1) accuses me of using multiple usernames. Um, that is old and I have been saying that for 1-2 years.

    2) Stop posting the same boring and tired stuff. Um, haven’t I been telling you that for the past year?

    But in conclusion, I do applaud Gaylord for using my tactics. I mean if he cannot come up with his own material, it’s always beneficial to learn from the best!

    Thank you very much! ***and bows for the audience before exiting stage right….

    @Joe

    Kahuku is a one dimensional team that had the whole state oblivious that they could actually throw the ball or have a “well rounded offense”. But as everyone fails to do & don’t want to dissect is their cupcake schedule:
    Leilehua 49-15 W
    Aiea 50-7 W
    Waianae 28-0 W
    Campbell 44-0 W
    Radford 83-0 W
    Bishop Gorman 35-7 L
    Moanalua 42-0 W
    Kaiser 45-7 W
    Leilehua 63-0 W
    Post Season:
    Farrington 44-8 W
    Kapolei 54-7 W
    St. Louis 30-14 L

    Look at all the season victories & opponents. Radford, Aiea, Kaiser are all teams that would get trashed in the ILH D2 league. Moanalua, Leilehua, Campbell didn’t make it to the D1 Championship but the ILH winless Iolani did.
    Waianae, Kapolei, Farrington are just a yearly fill in to fill.the state tournament schedule (congratulations Hernandez adding credentials to his resume finally). Waianae & Farrington are the “one & done” teams of the state tournaments every year. Now looks at all Kahuku’s scores & opponents. They could have ran the “Little Giants” playbook all season & walked through the schedule. Granted BG was their only loss but that game was only scheduled for national hype. I couldn’t see pass why everyone actually tried to watch that game knowing Kahuku had the same chance as Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl. Too much speed & too overpowering for these local boys. Comparing mainland speed is like comparing babies crawl & kids running. Their schedule gave Kahuku more public credibility & hype than giving them legitimate competition to prepare for better teams.
