No. 2 Saint Louis 30, No. 1 Kahuku 14

11/19/2016 (2016 state title game)

>> Kahuku failed to score a touchdown on either special teams or defense for the first time all year against a Hawaii opponent as Saint Louis quarterback Tua Tagovailoa broke Timmy Chang‘s career passing mark in the win. Tagovailoa’s “Heisman moment” came when he ran for a 30-yard touchdown to put the Crusaders up two possessions late in the fourth quarter. Kahuku had the ball at the Saint Louis 1 but fumbled at the goal line and Saint Louis’ Isaiah Tufaga recovered it in the end zone. The Crusaders shut out Kahuku 17-0 in the second half.

No. 2 Kahuku 39, No. 1 Saint Louis 14

11/20/2015 (2015 state title game)

>> Kahuku gave up a 15-yard penalty to start the game doing the haka at midfield while glaring at the Saint Louis sideline. The Crusaders scored on a blocked punt return for a touchdown before giving up 39 of the next 46 points. The 14 points were a season-low by the Crusaders, who fumbled on offense the first two times Kahuku put a hit on a Saint Louis player. Kahuku DB Keala Santiago had one of the Red Raiders’ three interceptions on defense and had seven picks in his final four games. Saint Louis was held to 139 total yards. Kahuku QB Kesi Ah-Hoy carried the ball 30 times for 103 yards and three touchdowns and also threw a 27-yard TD to Pua Falemalu.

No. 2 Saint Louis 30, No. 1 Punahou 14

10/17/2015

>> The rematch wasn’t quite as memorable as the double-overtime game played a month earlier. Punahou led 14-0 before Drew Kobayashi‘s 97-yard touchdown reception from QB Tua Tagovailoa jumpstarted 30 unanswered points by the Crusaders. Saint Louis forced six turnovers as Punahou RB Wayne Taulapapa, who rushed for 92 yards two touchdowns, fumbled three times and QB Ephraim Tuliloa was picked off three times. Tagovailoa, who didn’t start the game due to injury, finished 17-for-28 for 318 yards and three touchdowns (one rush).

No. 2 Punahou 51, No. 1 Saint Louis 45, 2 OT

9/25/2015

>> It doesn’t really get much better than this. The first of three meetings between the two schools this season ended when Wayne Taulapapa‘s fourth touchdown run of the game served as a walk-off in double overtime. Punahou never led until the end of the game. Nick Kapule, subbing for injured starter Ephraim Tuliloa, was 26-for-36 for 336 yards and three touchdowns. Saint Louis QB Tua Tagovailoa, who was 21-for-38 for 346 yards and a touchdown, injured his calf in the second quarter. LB Laakea Look intercepted Tagovailoa in the second overtime period to set up Taulapapa’s winning score.

No. 2 Mililani 53, No. 1 Punahou 45

11/21/2014 (2014 state title game)

>> The Buffanblu had been ranked No. 1 for 28 consecutive weeks going all the way back to Week 3 of the 2013 season. The Trojans had been ranked No. 2 for 22 consecutive weeks going back to Week 8 in 2013. This was the game fans were clamoring for all season after the Buffanblu defeated the Trojans 28-22 in the 2013 state final. Mililani QB McKenzie Milton threw for 421 yards and seven touchdowns against a team that was allowing 10.0 points per game the entire season coming in. The Trojans led 26-7 in the first quarter before Punahou made its charge with RB Wayne Taulapapa leading the way. Taulapapa rushed for 260 yards and three touchdowns but his fumble in the final minute allowed the Trojans to run out the clock and claim their first state championship.

No. 1 Punahou 28, No. 2 Mililani 22

11/23/2013 (2013 state title game)

>> Punahou started the year with a win over the Trojans at John Kauinana Stadium and ended it with a win over Mililani to claim its second state title and wrap up a perfect 11-0 season. The Buffanblu had lost to Kahuku in the previous two state finals but held on behind senior QB Larry Tuileta, who threw for 265 yards and three touchdowns. Mililani WR Kainoa Wilson threw two touchdown passes on trick plays to make it a six-point game but Punahou’s Joseph Augafa sealed the win with an interception. Mililani RB Vavae Malepeai was the state’s leading rusher but was held to 33 yards on 16 carries by a very stout Buffanblu defense. Mililani’s only two losses of the season were to the Buffanblu.

No. 1 Punahou 24, No. 2 Kamehameha 0

9/14/2013

>> Punahou took over the top spot weeks earlier when preseason No. 1 Saint Louis lost to the Warriors, who rose to second in the polls. This game was dominated by the Buffanblu defense and special teams. Punahou held Kamehameha to 166 total yards with 80 coming on the final drive after the game was out of reach. Punahou got the shutout after stopping Kamehameha three times from the 1-yard line in the final minute. RB Wayne Taulapapa rushed for two touchdowns and Boyd Chung, Saitui Moe’ai and Canton Kaumatule all had sacks for the Buffanblu.


No. 1 Kahuku 42, No. 2 Punahou 20

11/23/2012 (2012 state title game)

>> The Red Raiders won their second consecutive state title behind RB Aofaga Wily, who rushed for 188 yards and three touchdowns. Lasselle Thompson and Kawehena Johnson caught touchdown passes from Viliami Livai to build a 21-0 halftime lead. Punahou rallied with two touchdowns in the third quarter before Kahuku scored the next 21 points to pull away for the win. Ryan Tuiasoa, who played linebacker the previous season for Punahou, rushed for 118 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.

No. 1 Kahuku 31, No. 2 Farrington 6

9/29/2012

>> This game was dominated by Kahuku DB Kawehena Johnson, who finished with nine tackles, two touchdowns, an interception and a forced fumble. Johnson forced the fumble on Farrington’s first play from scrimmage and returned an interception for a touchdown to end the Govs’ second drive. Johnson also scored on a 16-yard touchdown pass from QB Viliami Livai. Kahuku led 31-0 before the Govs scored their only touchdown against the backups in the fourth quarter.

No. 1 Kahuku 21, No. 2 Punahou 13

8/18/2012

>> Punahou made a rare trip to the North Shore in this early-season clash and nearly pulled out the win. Punahou led 13-0 at halftime on a Ryan Tuiasoa touchdown run and a touchdown pass from Larry Tuileta to Kanawai Noa. Kahuku RB Aofaga Wily took over in the second half scored on three different touchdown runs. Wily finished with what turned out to be a career-high 225 yards on 28 carries while the Red Raiders defense held Punahou to negative yards rushing.

No. 1 Kahuku 30, No. 2 Punahou 24

11/25/2011 (2011 state title game)

>> Kahuku won the first of two straight state titles after having to forfeit all of its wins in 2010 following the use of an ineligible player. RB Aofaga Wily rushed for 180 yards and a touchdown while going up against a Punahou defensed led by current UCLA linebacker Isaac Savaiinaea, who had 14 tackles, and current Oregon defensive lineman DeForest Buckner, who had eight tackles. Punahou QB Larry Tuileta threw two fourth-quarter touchdowns to Steven Lakalaka but the difference was a 30-yard touchdown run by Kahuku’s Mahonilai Fakatou, who also caught a TD pass.

No. 2 Kahuku 23, No. 1 Farrington 0

11/4/2011 (2011 OIA title game)

>> Kahuku earned revenge for a midseason loss to the Govs with another dominant defensive performance. Kahuku held Farrington RB Tyler Taumua, the state’s leading rusher, to only 19 yards on 11 carries. DB Bronson Beatty had two interceptions and Kahuku held the Govs to 124 total yards. The game was 3-0 at halftime before Kahuku pulled away with two 1-yard TD runs and an 18-yard TD pass from Viliami Livai to Spencer Nagy.

No. 2 Farrington 14, No. 1 Kahuku 13

10/1/2011

>> Kahuku had been No. 1 in 19 of the first 24 weeks of the Star-Advertiser poll and had beaten Farrington in 16 of the previous 17 meetings. That all changed on this day as the Govs won a game decided by a missed extra point. Setefano Lavatai sealed the game with an interception with 20 seconds remaining for Farrington, which got 100 rushing yards from RB Tyler Taumua on 24 carries. Kahuku DB Kawehena Johnson accounted for both Red Raiders touchdowns, scoring on a 92-yard interception return and a 3-yard run.

No. 1 Saint Louis 36, No. 2 Waianae 13

11/26/2010 (2010 state title game)

>> The anticipated rematch between Saint Louis and Kahuku from earlier in the season never materialized after Kahuku was forced out of the state tournament after forfeiting all of its games. QB Marcus Mariota faced a Waianae team that finished below .500 in the final and was 17-for-23 for 230 yards and three touchdowns. Jaylen Mitchell returned a kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown for Waianae to make it 23-13 but the Seariders didn’t score again. Future Texas A&M receiver Jeremy Tabuyo caught a 79-yard touchdown pass from Mariota. DB Leland Gomez had two of the Crusaders’ three interceptions on defense.


No. 1 Kahuku 49, No. 2 Saint Louis 27

8/27/2010

>> This is the only time Saint Louis played at Carlton Weimer Field on the North Shore and was the only loss as a starter for Saint Louis QB Marcus Mariota. Ben Mamea and Tigi Hill blocked punts for the Red Raiders, who only led 21-20 at halftime. Kahuku scored the next four touchdowns as QB Evan Moe was an efficient 9-for-13 for 166 yards. Kahuku RB Tyrone Brown rushed for 84 yards and three touchdowns on only nine carries. Mariota finished 25-for-43 for 277 yards and a touchdown with one interception and also ran for 82 yards and a touchdown.

  1. Dafun November 13, 2017 10:19 am

    Was the point of this article to seriously praise Kahuku for winning when they are #2? Where’s the St. Louis looking like the top dog this year article? Apparently you make it sound really biased that Kahuku should win


  2. Jason Keuma November 13, 2017 11:09 am

    This is a recycled article. There is nothing new to write. Offense vs. Defense blah blah blah. There is a reason they play the game, and not just award the winner based off polls.

    I would like to know why all the extra games. OIA 12 Team playoff in a 14 team league, Extra games. 6 team “states” playoff involving only two leagues, when it boils down to the OIA Champ vs. the ILH champ. What happens with the extra games? Injuries, and they we don’t get to see the best games.

    Win or loose, all I hope is good, injury free games, on both sides.


  3. TooMeke November 13, 2017 11:19 am

    Again – can we ban crybabies? Especially those crying about their #1 team that’s top ten in the nation (per computers)? Can we? Please? Pretty please? With sugar on top?

    Talk about poor sport winners (whiners???)

    LMAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    Irrelevant article as far as the game goes…but nice research for a ‘just for fun’ article. Expect to see more of the same as the week progresses – nature of the media beast.

    Is it game day yet?

    RRFL.


  4. Dafun November 13, 2017 11:30 am

    Here we go with tomeke. Mouthing off as usual. Unless you guys beat us next week, you’re gonna remain a #2 team. I’m surprised you guys even beat mililani because you guys almost lost to a bad Waianae team.


  5. 88 November 13, 2017 11:43 am

    Dude shut up… You the only on here who complains about whining while whining. Grow some b@llz.


  6. Chief Editor November 13, 2017 12:12 pm

    nice job remaining neutral….really, you kept it right down the middle.


  7. Coach K November 13, 2017 12:30 pm

    Nice to know article…Kahuku seems to rise to the occasion…Hopefully, being in the No.2 spot will get the kids motivated..This St.Louis team looks as good as many of the previous teams…Fast,Big,and well coached…The Red Raiders got their hands full,especially with a questionable offense, facing a very talented defense…Hopefully, they can keep it close and make the most of St.Louis mistakes…Which they hardly make if any…Go Big Red…


  8. phILHarmonic November 13, 2017 12:46 pm

    Not many expected W to do as well as they did against RR, but W was less than a minute from pulling off a major upset.

    And, no one could have foretold the 1st half of the Lulu vs. Mill going the way it did.

    Any given day, no matter the rankings, regular season record or storied history anything can happen. Good luck to both teams.


  9. Too Meke 2 November 13, 2017 1:25 pm

    Like I said earlier, if the site bans crybabies or whiners, then guys like too meke, anywaaays, and 88 would be banned. Then this site would be boring. There would be no one to laugh at or pick on. Paul Honda already exposed anywaaays and said he had multiple usernames like too meke.

    What’s classic is these guys talk tough behind a computer and a fake name! Hahahaha!

    Let me repeat myself. Anywaaays aka too meke aka 88 use a fake username and talk tough while hiding. They are like pencil neck geeks.

    I bet they never even play football. I would be more impressed if they act tough and use their real name. But they don’t. Instead they hide and try to make big body!

    Hahahahah, that just made my day. Taking big while hiding. Haha what’s next?


  10. Too Meke 2 November 13, 2017 1:27 pm

    88 is telling someone to grow balls but he’s hiding behind a fake name. Well maybe his mom named him 88 cuz she knew he was too dumb to remember his name or spell his name if it was too long. I heard she wanted to name 88 Tom, but that was too hard for him so thy changed it back to 88.

    Haha internet tough guy. I’m scared. Please don’t talk aggressive to me 88 behind you computer. I don’t know what I would do.


  11. 88 November 13, 2017 1:42 pm

    The first thing you should do is learn to use the grammar and spell check feature on your computer. Look at you getting all sensitive and typing all mad and s#!t……


  12. Recruit dis November 13, 2017 1:59 pm

    If you thought Waianae’s defense was good wait till you play St. Louis. Especially with your Qb not 100%.


  13. 88 November 13, 2017 2:05 pm

    Same thing happened in 2015 when Kahuku played Waianae. We all know the end result.


  14. Awrite!! November 13, 2017 2:09 pm

    Im a Kahuku alum and after watching many replays its apparent that we kill ourselves with penalties. True the refs dont like Kahuku but why give them a reason to throw the flag with some seriously bonehead mistakes, we need extra training teaching our boys the rules and how to avoid getting the flag, and not just expect them to know it because they played football since little kid days.


  15. Small Wallet November 13, 2017 2:47 pm

    I’m curious to see the result of St. Louis’ O when Kahuku D tackles. Mililani front got to the qb but didn’t bring him down all the time, he took off for big extended plays. Also them simple hitches/outs to the house were big plays. I don’t see Kahuku giving up the scrambles more than a couple times, nor do I see them giving up 5 yd hitches to the house. I know Lou will pass… but more of that may lead to turnovers, more sacks, and stellar field position. Kahuku O ain’t the explosive, but sol Jays legs may make the Lou d line look jv. And with him extending time how long can Lou DBs cover man without getting tired? Good luck to both teams.. I’m just curious


  16. Alpha November 13, 2017 2:53 pm

    All in all, Kahuku’s defense is going to have to win this game. More so then any great past Kahuku defense has ever. Both St. Louis and Kahuku have shown to be great at adjusting, it might come down to player mistakes and which team can take advantage. Trying to bottle up Cordeiro and stay in coverage is going to be a huge task, but Kahuku has the secondary and linebackers to take the challenge. . . . St. Louis is a very good team, Cordeiro makes up for not having a run game… can’t wait for this one.


  17. rrforlifebaby November 13, 2017 3:36 pm

    can you please write an article singing the high praises of st louis so da fun can be happy? i would give him a hug to let him know that not all Red Raiders are monsters, but i dont think i could close enough because of his over inflated ego. lol

    as usual, we have more than enough talent across the board to match up with St Louis. my only concern is that the old school grind em out and grind em down running game is lacking. but like all Alumni, we have faith in the boys.
    RRFL!!!


  18. dafun November 13, 2017 4:15 pm

    if this kahuku team plays like how they did last week, there will be no game left for you guys


  19. 88 November 13, 2017 4:40 pm

    What other game is there? This is the final game of the season numbnutz.


  20. Red Raider Alumni November 13, 2017 5:22 pm

    What an amazing accomplishment for Kahuku to constantly be in the mix at the end of the year..Proves how much talent we have out here on the North Shore…ESPN wasn’t kidding when they called us “Football Town USA”…We got the Greatest community and Fans ” 12 man “…If you haven’t experienced it, come to the Stadium on Saturday and see and feel it for yourself…From the Tomahawk Chop to the Alma mater..Generations from 2 to 100+ will be supporting our rich tradition of Red Raider Nation pride…As I look at our roster, I can see we’re gonna be back again and again and again….Etc..Good Luck to Our Boyz and Coaches….Go Big Red…RRFL Class of 78


  21. Auwe November 13, 2017 5:29 pm

    I’m not to convinced with kahukus Lee Leslie 2.0 offense lol! Stick to your bread and butter! Seems like they try to hit a home run more often then take what the defense gives you, trying to run out of the pistol is simple math! Hard to block 6 with 5 lol! Which equals to RB gotta fake out 2! It should be a good game, as long as defense had some rest in between ! Good luck to both teams! Play safe and no injuries! Go Big Red


  22. Recruit dis November 13, 2017 6:38 pm

    C’mon guys it’s not rocket science. Kahuku defense not as good as last year and St. Louis defense better then last year . But that’s why the game is played. Good luck to both teams.


  23. dafun November 13, 2017 6:51 pm

    ^exactly. kahuku not as good as last year and I’m going to admit they were good last year. This year they escaped barely from mililani and waianae and the kahuku fans still think they’re up and up with st. louis after this past game with mililani they took out their 1st string in the 4th quarter and mililani still couldnt score. If they had kept in the first string it would of been a mercy rule game. But no, that’s not enough for the kahuku fans because they believe their team is great and won’t admit that they’re not as good as before


  24. Eyeswideshut November 13, 2017 7:08 pm

    Dafun…more like Dastupid…This is a positive article…Go to a St.( State) Louis artcle and write on that blog…And write about what school you guys going take players from…And stay away from Laie Park…Plaese and Thank You…RRFL


  25. Awrite!! November 13, 2017 7:48 pm

    With the neighbor islands declining to participate in the Open division and leaving only ILH and OIA teams left, it is completely meaningless to have 3 OIA teams in the Open division especially right after they finished their brutal OIA playoffs.

    Kahuku vs. Waianae a 2nd time in the state semi’s? for what? All it did was create more injuries for the winner (which was Kahuku). St. Louis comes in after 3 weeks of rest and is healthy and it showed as Mililani was bruised up from playing Kahuku the previous week.

    Eliminate the Open division especially since the reason it was created was to allow the outer island teams to join but they dont want in on it. Back to the prep bowl so that the best from the OIA and the best from the ILH can play in a final game where both teams are rested and ready to go 100%. Kahuku is only 80% with their starting QB, RB and LB injured.


  26. Auwe November 13, 2017 9:01 pm

    The whole OIA playoff is pointless! Just have top 4 OIA play off and OIA champ vs ILH champ! Eliminate pointless injuries! That way was fair for both! And rest of the leagues play same as now. After 17 years outcome always the same.


  27. Tufaga/wesley November 13, 2017 9:34 pm

    I am a proud RR4L. My son played from big boys all the way to his Jr year. This year he chose not to play for a number of personal reasons. I have a lot of pride in my Alma mater and the sacrifice and efforts of our team. The reason we are so passionate about our team is because everyone of our community members adopts those boys as our sons. Therefore we come out full force to support them.

    I have three grand nephew’s playing for saint Louis and a nephew who coaches the defense. It’s his Alma mater. They take pride in their team as well. I love them and wish them the best and hope none of the boys on both teams get hurt.

    The problem is sometimes we take this game way to serious and say harsh things against the opponents. We forget that it’s a rough game and the boys (kids) put in a whole lot of time, effort, hard work, sacrifices to play a game for our entertainment. Please STOP all this crazy talk. Just cheer for your team and pray no one gets hurt.
    RR4L but a Tufaga for eternity😁


  28. Match November 13, 2017 9:38 pm

    Let the kids just play!!!
    Y’all go put on some shorts and take a good swim in the ocean. Whatever the end result is, is gonna be whatit is. Im a Red Raider For Life. So, let the kids just play and do what they do. When all this is done. We support our very own 808 players. Good luck to both teams!!!


  29. Jason Keuma November 13, 2017 9:44 pm

    Auwe- Exactly. Extra games= increased potential for needless injuries. I can see the top 3 from each division. The top Red and Blue getting a bye, and then playing the winner from the other games, but 12 team playoff? Feels like the ILH D1 playoff, everyone participates, because they dont have enough teams. OIA D1 has plenty. Really should have the bottom 4 move to D2.


  30. Setu November 13, 2017 10:35 pm

    Everybody is good until they face Kahuku.


  31. Dafun November 13, 2017 11:19 pm

    Eyes wide shut of course I’m gonna stay away. Ain’t shit to do on your side of the island. When we start romping on you guys this week don’t complain! Same thing gonna happen to you like Mililani and you guys barely escaped! Haha you’re hilarious about taking players. Apparently you’ve never went to private school where parents pay to send their children there. Good one though. All salty over me bashing kahuku. You’re gonna be even more salty this weekend I can’t wait!


  32. Bone 1 November 14, 2017 12:48 am

    Good Luck Boys, G2G, Crusader Strong!!


  33. atbatman November 14, 2017 3:17 am

    Dafun, wow you really are a hater, can’t just wish all the boys good luck and have a good game.
    that’s what parents and supporters do. They root and support the boys no matter who wins. The Kahuku fans may be over the top but that’s what we do in the close knit community in the north shore.
    so keep being negative and arrogant, cause that’s who you are.
    Aloha Kaia


  34. TooMeke November 14, 2017 6:13 am

    @Dafun – who’s da salty one?????????

    HAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! killing me.

    RRFL.


  35. TooMeke November 14, 2017 6:14 am

    By the way – I just commented on some St Louis articles… and Dafutz is nowhere to be seen on articles praising his (alleged) school…

    HA!!


  36. Auwe November 14, 2017 6:44 am

    The most beneficial state tournament that would be fair to all leagues would be to

    1.ILH champ vs. OIA champ

    2. ILH 2&3 vs. OIA 2&3 next div.

    3.next division
    Hopefully one day the leagues can put their difference’s aside and put the kids first! And do a merger. It can only benefit everyone. As for those who would complain about recruiting ahh cmon!! OIA just got to get rid of transfer ruling!


  37. Dafun November 14, 2017 9:57 am

    Yeah my alleged school is going to beat your school down and you’ll be salty for another year. Plus I bet you never even played football


  38. 88 November 14, 2017 10:01 am

    Waite, I thought you went to Mililani. Didn’t you say the same thing before the Mililani/Kahuku game? Loser……


  39. Dafun November 14, 2017 10:26 am

    Haha stop trying to make shit up you know I stated I went to St. Louis dummy. Wait till this weekend


  40. 808 November 14, 2017 11:15 am

    I expect a close first half as Saint Louis seems to come out slow out of the gates for some reason. Crusaders will start eventually start to roll on “O” however and nobody wins a shootout against the Saints. Both teams play basic schemes on “D” and dare you to beat them “up and up” as both teams have stud athletes on that side of the ball. It’s just that Saints have more of them. Kahuku has struggled to establish a ground and pound run game all season and they’ll struggle on Saturday as well. QB is banged up too. StL has more overall team speed and a superior offense. PREDICTION: Saints 34, Red Raiders 17.

    On a side note, with his/her ignorant and non sports related posts, Too Meke 2 reveals him/herself as the poster fka Education First. Definition of a self described internet hero and a real life zero. Rule of thumb, if you’re bragging about your “big time lifestyle” on the internet to a bunch of strangers, you don’t have one 😀.

    FYI on a thread back in October, Billy Hull mentioned that site finally blocked Education First. Hull said that user was going by at least three other screen names..BG Grad, phILHarmonic, RRFL living the lie and a few others. The guy also claimed he was some big timer but always avoided meeting up with other posters when pressed. Funny when internet heroes are exposed as the real life zeroes that they really are. Rule of Thumb…if you’re trying to impress total strangers on the internet with your so-called lifestyle, you probably don’t have one.

    Most beneficial State football post season. OIA vs. ILH champion, ONE GAME, plus 1 week bye for both teams. The D1 OIA does not have the cushion schedule that the ILH has. Kahuku”s record is 11-1. St.Louis 9-0. That means Kahuku had to play 3 more games then St.Louis. Mililani would have been in the same boat. No dis’s to StL. but more of a shout to the OIA to get rid of this fluffed up OIA playoff format. No more than 4 teams should be in the OIA playoffs. Top 2 Blue top 2 Red. As it stands this year, Kahuku and Mililani were undefeated,undisputed in RED and BLUE. Why risk more games,injuries and the chance the OIA”s best teams do not move foward? As much as these posters say,”Well Waianae coulda”,who would want to watch a St.L. vs.Waianae blow out? No one. Everyone wants a undefeated ILH vs. undefeated OIA. Period. No diss to W, but it is what it is.

    Coach c if you going by how many games they played you should also look at the competition they played. Yeah St. Louis played 3 less games but only 1 was outside of the top ten which is Baldwin. Just imagine if kahuku played mililani and Waianae multiple times one after another with no easy games. Obviously you saw it gets harder playing a team more then once because Waianae almost won the second time around. I know that St. Louis only played punahou and kamehameha but it gets even harder playing them again and again and again. So when people say they had a weaker schedule it’s because they know nothing about football.

    Stay away from laie park lol.

    RD.
    First of all, nobody said anything about a weaker schedule. I’m calling out the OIA to keeping it down to 10 games for their season. Concerning Waianae vs.Kahuku. There is no “almost won”. You win or lose. My point is 3 more extra games mean’s more wear and injuries. Damien,St.Francis or Iolani can play against any D1 ILH and cause injury on a concussion, roll up or any injury. Having 3 less games makes a big difference unless your in a flag football league.

    This is just the reality of it all. That’s just what Kahuku does. They are just winners. Ever since the playing field was leveled, Kahuku has dominated. That’s all the writer is saying.

    It will be a great game. Every single time St Louis has met up with Kahuku for the State Champion game, they have always boasted a High-Powered offense. And the results…? Well St Louis doesn’t even come close to Kahuku!

    Should be a great game. Go Bingham!!!

    Kahuku wins. Saint Lulu recruits. When we smash all the Saint Lulu pretty boys in their pretty boy private school uniforms, then Cal Lee is gonna just recruit some more. The man doesn’t care about anything except stealing our own children from our backyards and turning them against their communities to support the ILH agenda.

    The HHSAA is complicit, so is the media. Everyone hates on Kahuku but that’s okay. All we do is win win win! All they do is recruit recruit recruit! HAHA RRFL!
