Series History: Aiea hasn’t beaten Campbell since 2010 — a series-high six straight losses — and the Sabers lead the series 14-8. Last year was the highest scoring game in the series, with Campbell winning 46-30 with Aiea’s Kobe Kato throwing for 394 yards and Kame Kim Choy-Keb-Ah Lo hauling in a school-record 202 of them. Aiea has not had a rusher gain more than 100 yards since Pepe Lopez had 166 in 1989, a span of 14 straight games. Campbell hasn’t had a rusher go over 100 yards against Aiea since Samson Anguay torched them for 212 in 2007 and hasn’t had a receiver go over 100 since Keoni Piceno had 103 in 2011. Campbell coach Amosa Amosa spent nine years as Aiea’s offensive coordinator under current Aiea coach Wendell Say before landing the job at his alma mater. Those Aiea offenses averaged more than 20 points per game five times during that period and Na Alii’s offense has only averaged more than 20 points per game three times since.
