The half ends with a goal-line stand by Campbell as they stop Saint Louis RB Dayton Sam on fourth-and-goal from the 2. Saint Louis leads at the break 48-0.

de Laura rolls out of the pocket and launches a 64-yard bomb to Matthew Skyes to the Campbell 5. Next play, RB Robbie Paikai scores around left end for another TD. PAT is wide left. SAINT LOUIS 48, CAMPBELL 0, 5:25, Q2.

Nice run of 18 yards by Campbell RB Sky Lactaoen, but the Sabers stall and punt.

Bad snaps in the shotgun plaguing Campbell, and Peter Manuma enters as a wildcat-style QB. Kalaola returns on third and 10, and his sideline spiral is picked off by Junior Wily for a 20-yard pick-6. The second pick-6 of the night by STL. SAINT LOUIS 42, CAMPBELL 0, 8:59, Q2.

Longest drive of the game so far for Saint Louis, nine plays, 59 yards. de Laura closes the march with back-to-back passes to Koali Nishigaya, including a 21-yard catch and sprint down the left sideline. SAINT LOUIS 35, CAMPBELL 0, :10, Q1.

DT Gino Quinones with a sack to derail the Sabers’ fourth possession, punt.

Sabers stumbling. After a touchback on the kickoff, the snap on first down gets past the QB and LB Jordan Botelho leaps on it in the end zone for another Saint Louis TD. Woh. SAINT LOUIS 28, CAMPBELL 0, 4:37, Q1.

Crusaders need just three plays to score on a 53-yard drive. de Laura connects in the left corner of the end zone with Makana Close for a 20-yard TD. SAINT LOUIS 21, CAMPBELL 0, 4:43, Q1.

Tuitele ruins Campbell’s third series with two sacks. Sabers punt.

Campbell’s second series starts with another dive, one yard. Then Kalaola’s pass is batted at the line of scrimmage — I think it was DT Faatui Tuitele, and LB Kila Kamakawiwo‘ole hauls it in for a 25-yard return and TD. WOW. SAINT LOUIS 14, CAMPBELL 0, 6:49, Q1.

Scramble by Campbell QB Kaniala Kalaola leads to a strip and fumble. Saint Louis safety Junior Wily returns it to the Campbell 42. Four plays later, QB Jayden de Laura keeps around right end for a 4-yard TD. SAINT LOUIS 7, CAMPBELL 0, 7:39, Q1.


7:56 p.m. Campbell will receive the opening kickoff. The Sabers’ mascot was on the field with the homecoming king and queen for the coin toss. Finally, here we go.

7:52 p.m. Just ran across Campbell LB/RB Tyrese Tafai, a standout performer as a sophomore last season. He’s out for the rest of the year due to a recurring shoulder injury and will undergo surgery soon. Great young man, tough loss for the Sabers.

7:35 p.m. Varsity warmups are underway and now it’s scratch-your-head time. The great homecoming atmosphere is a bit offset by this: the scoreboard is being obscured by the TV camera equipment behind the mauka end zone. I wonder why they couldn’t have set up behind the other end zone. Now nobody on the sidelines can see the score or, more importantly, the time on the clock. Absurd. A night to remember, for sure.

7:20 p.m. Temperature has cooled off with sunrise. Trades up to 5-10 mph. Makes quite a difference especially with humidity still thick. JV game, Saint Louis over Campbell 28-15.

5:35 p.m. Fans from Saint Louis began trickling into the facility around 3:30 p.m. The temperature was slightly below 90 at the time and it has hardly cooled since. Trade winds are barely existent. Just another typical Ewa Beach day.

    Campbell looks overmatched only two series into the game. 14-0 already.

  2. Notes September 28, 2018 8:29 pm

    28-0 1st quarter is an embarrasment for the OIA. Whos idea was it to allow the alliance?

    As long as St. Louis keep dodging top mainland schools im not impressed with their games against public schools on Oahu. Campbell should just forfeit at half time and no shake hands LOL.

  3. Choloropicrin September 28, 2018 8:34 pm

    35-0 1st quarter wow!! Coach DJ and his ACO coaching staff looking like they belong in JPS.

  4. Notes September 28, 2018 8:39 pm

    So you saying Cal Lee is a better coach or better recruiter? Darren recruited the 3rd stringers from Kahuku. Cal got the 4 star QB De Laura from Damien.

  5. OverRatedOIA September 28, 2018 8:50 pm

    You guys talked so much trash about how over rated the ILH was and this season would show it. Now you guys are crying about who’s idea was this. The ILH is destroying the OIA across all divisions. Why? Better coaching. Cal pulled his defensive starters after the first quarter. The second string is still gonna run circles around Campbell.

  6. Choloropicrin September 28, 2018 8:57 pm

    Cal lee is a better coach, DJ is a proven recruiter. I’d rank him ahead of York. DJ recruited his Kailua teams back in the late 90’s early 00’s from Kahuku..took kahukus too RB Rocky Alo to kailua. He recruited his way through his time at Kaimuki taking kids from McKinley and Farrington.

    At STL, parents afford to send their kids to the “football” school…for the education and football why not? But if you recruiting kids to a public school for just football and nothing more then what?

  7. Realtalk808 September 28, 2018 8:58 pm

    @Notes Do you think Passas is a better QB coach than what Damien has? Just out of curiousity. I don’t think so. Delaura is probably developing about 100 times better than he’d be at Damien. Why is that a problem if he switched to a good football program for his future? This goes for any kid who transfers into an ILH school. The OIA schools have proven that they would never be able to handle ILH play. Playing StL, the Puns or Kam twice a year and possibly 3 would be tough every year.

  8. Choloropicrin September 28, 2018 9:05 pm

    The only OIA schools that can compete with the ILH are the ones that recruit…Top 4 Mililani, Kapolei, Campbell and Kahuku…and only Kahuku can compete out of the 4.

    Waianae and Farrington are proud Programs who are probaly the only teams that don’t recruit, that’s why they are sucking wind this year, especially Waianae.

    But why recruit to OIA schools if only for football? And nothing more, so that argument about ILH “recruiting” is dumb because families pay tuition and sacarfice time for a better future to be a part of the network aka “Brotherhood”, Or Punahou or Kamehameha network.

  9. Choloropicrin September 28, 2018 9:06 pm

    Best recruiters in OIA football history

    1) Siuaki Liwai
    2) DJ
    3) Rod York
    4) Rich Miano
    5) Darren Hernandez

  10. Notes September 28, 2018 9:38 pm

    People said ILH is overrated 5yrs ago when Cal was losing at Kalani and the ILH used only the kids in their system. No that Cal had 4 years to build his super team he should fly to the mainland instead of picking on disadvantaged public schools.

  11. Notes September 28, 2018 9:41 pm

    In 2016 the ILH actually tried to buy friends, 3 $Million to combine leagues with OIa but OIA refused. This year the ILH strong armed the merger. The OIA teams dont need the ILH.

  12. Notes September 28, 2018 9:52 pm

    Realtalk808 – Mckenzie and Gabriel developed just fine at a non-St.Louis school without passas. Some people can handle the harder path.

  13. OverRatedOIA September 28, 2018 9:55 pm

    @Notes the OIA doesn’t need the ILH? Sure seems like the OIA needs to step up and could benefit from some competition instead of beating up on lower tier teams. The ILH is what 20-3 now versus OIA? Lol. Step up your game.

  14. Notes September 28, 2018 10:00 pm

    Not impressed! each player on St. Louis team is twice as big as the Campbell players. yawwwwner!

  15. Notes September 28, 2018 10:06 pm

    What lower tier teams are you talking about? This is the open division and Campbell is worthy. St. Louis is a win-at-all-costs institution that recruits from all 5 islands they should be setting their sights on the mainland not some lowly Campbell team.

    This game was not competitive at all, Campbell kids were getting hurt. There should be another division for St. Louis to be in by themselves. Easy to win when you monopolize all the talent.

  16. Notes September 28, 2018 10:14 pm

    copy/paste from another post.

    STL recruits..
    konawaena DB – Luca Vartic
    maui DE – Tristan NIchols
    maui WR – Wilson
    kauai OL Herbig
    Waipahu LB – Jordan Iosefa
    Kaiser LB – Isaac Matautia
    Damien QB – DeLaura
    nanakuli hmstead waterboy – bulaia

    I hope all these kids get college scholarships but take this Hawaii allstar team to the mainland, not to Campbell…not impressed!

  17. Dafun September 28, 2018 10:26 pm

    No matter what St Louis does everyone will hate them. Winning will get you that. As long as kahuku doesn’t win I’m fine. Or mililani. Because when has any of us ever saw soles at mililani? And I’m tired of that Mormon come from another state like Utah or American Samoa to go to kahuku crap. Everyone just keep complaining about how st Louis is winning and St Louis will continue to win hahahaha

  18. Farney September 28, 2018 10:31 pm

    Lol, somebody name ILH was saying Kahuku blows out Radford,blah blah. Now this super All Hawaii team blows out the Waianaes and Campbell. They recruiting college size players from all over the state. Who are housing the outer island kids? Cal still thinks he’s atUH? Do like Vegas, the regular public school refuse to play Gorman$$$. Back in the 80s Cal only recruiterS 9th graders. Now he goes StAteside and recruits Jrs. and hold back one year, age permitting. OIA can go back to their league. They get enough teams. StL.can go pound Pun and Kam each year, 3x.

  19. Realtalk808 September 28, 2018 10:50 pm

    @Notes funny thing is Gabriel and Milton was throwing with Passas every Sunday in the off-season. They would’ve thrived more under him all season long. I’ll enjoy watching how Gabriel developed when he throws for 4-5 TDS tomorrow against Kahuku. It’s not a harder path as well. He took the harder path by playing against D-1 Talent. You’re a pretty ignorant fellow.

  20. Realtalk808 September 28, 2018 10:52 pm

    @Notes All the transfers you just mentioned, what do they all have in common? The competition they would’ve played against at those schools do not match the competition the get playing at STL. Better competition helps for college recruiting. Don’t hate on kids trying to get ahead in life.

  21. Aaron September 28, 2018 11:10 pm

    All of u idiots just shut up! None of y’all know what the hell you guys are talking about.

  22. Notes September 28, 2018 11:41 pm

    Realtalk – You talk about competition but here St. Louis wanna be a big fish in a small pond, try going to the big pond on the mainland. Its very sad for the brotherhood to drain the local public schools of talent then force those same schools to play you because you are tired of the ILH 3 team league, and I also heard Cal was complaining and wants to force the OIA to count their games. So if 55-7 wasnt a beating enough you want to make It count so that Punahou or Kam can get into the playoffs. No morals over there on the slopes.

    Stop talking already your brotherhood just keeps getting exposed for being cheaters.

  23. Nala September 28, 2018 11:44 pm

    Aaron….true dat…especially that dafun

  24. Jimmy H September 29, 2018 12:38 am

    STL just had to remind us all that Kapolei was a bye week for them. Recruited or not, they are still the best. Rich is rich no matter how you got your money.

  25. JC September 29, 2018 7:57 am

    Paul Honda – There is no Makana Close…his name is Makoa Close..he is 6′-2″ and 195 lbs. Get it straight. When you writing about someone at least get their names correct. Boys work hard and deserve proper recongnition.

  26. 88 September 29, 2018 4:51 pm

    anywaaays is back for his weekly whine-session. uso is from Waialua.
