7:18 p.m.: JV FINAL: Campbell 27, Kaiser 14

The Sabers have struggled with the graduation of several key performers, but coach Amosa Amosa continues to air the ball out while trying to establish a ground attack. Campbell has run the ball 56 times — Tasi Faumui has 84 yards on 30 carries) in two games while airing the ball out 73 times. Kawika Ulufale has capable playmakers in Markus Ramos (eight receptions, 67 yards) and Zayne Barr-Rauschenburg (10 grabs, 66 yards).

Kaiser QB Kainoa Torres withstood a shellacking by a relentless Mililani defense last week, and still managed to make good decisions most of the night. The Cougars will welcome the return of their players who sat last week due to academic probation, but the biggest boost might come from two-way standout Andrew Kaufusi (hamstring).

History: Kaiser has not beaten Campbell since 1986, giving the Sabers a six-game winning streak in the series and a 6-5 edge in the series. The Cougars have only had a passer go over 140 yards once, with Shannon Wise getting 147 in 2004. The Sabers have never lost on Kaiser’s field, going 8-0. Noah Esprecion‘s 135 yards receiving in a 27-21 win over Kaiser last year was a high in the series.
