King Kekaulike becomes fifth team to forfeit

King Kekaulike became the fifth of 45 Hawaii High School football teams to forfeit a game this year on Saturday.

Na Alii, a Maui Interscholastic League team, forfeited its game to Kamahemeha-Maui, apparently due to low roster numbers.

King Kekaulike’s forfeit was first reported in the Maui News.

On the same day, Hawaii Prep from the Big Island Interscholastic Federation forfeited a game against Konawaena. Ka Makani’s intention to forfeit was first reported by Hawaii Prep World on Friday.

The three other teams who forfeited at least one game this year are Kaiser, Kalaheo and Pac-Five. In all cases, the lack of enough available and experienced players was the reason.

    That’s a great point. Then Waialua can join Leilehua and then anywaaays can “come out of the closet” and cheer for his hometown team and be proud.
