LIVE BLOG: Kahuku 20, Mililani 7, F

Kahuku and Mililani meet in a rematch of the 2014 OIA title game won by the Trojans.
Kahuku and Mililani meet in a rematch of the 2014 OIA title game won by the Trojans.

The time for talking is over.

The top two teams in the OIA all season collide Friday night at Aloha Stadium as No. 2 Kahuku faces No. 3 Mililani for the OIA D-I title. The Red Raiders had never lost to the Trojans until 2013, when Mililani beat Kahuku in the OIA semifinals. A year later, the Trojans were better than the Red Raiders again, winning the OIA title by a 20-7 margin.

As pointed out here Friday, if the season ended today, Kahuku’s 3.2 points per game allowed would be the best of all-time while Mililani’s 56.5 points per game average would be No. 1 all-time. Will it be Kahuku’s defense or Mililani’s offense that shines brightest at the end of the night?


Live in-game updates with videos will follow below. Kickoff will likely be more like 8:25 p.m.:

Mililani senior QB McKenzie Milton is not in pads and will not play.

TEAM CAPTAINS
Kahuku: Keala Santiago, Pesa Lefau, Hirkley Latu, Jed Hefernan
Mililani: McKenzie Milton, Ramsey Tacadena, Kyle Chinen, Andru Tovi, Kahe Kaaiawaawa, Kalakaua Timoteo, Vavae Malepeai

Kahuku will receive. It’s getting tense in here. Both sides are jacked up. Here we go with the 2015 OIA D-I title game.

Trojans have won 22 straight games against teams from Hawaii since losing to Punahou in the 2013 state final.

Short kick and Kahuku will start from the 32. Kesi Ah-Hoy starts at QB and hands it off to Harmon Brown for 1 yard. Ah-Hoy keeps for 3 and keeps for 2 and Kahuku will punt. Trojans call timeout first as Mililani doubles both gunners and left the middle open in case Kahuku wanted to fake it. Kahuku will get flagged for interference and Mililani will have the Red Raiders punt again after the 15-yard penalty. Big punt and Rico Sallas drops it. Pesa Lefau recovers for Kahuku at the 33.

Ah-Hoy out of the big-boy set for 7 yards right up the middle. Kahuku jumps early. Brown in at QB and keeps for 5. He’s stopped for no gain to force fourth-and-3. They run Brown up the middle and he finds a hole, breaks a tackle, and he’s off to the races. 26-yard TD run. Kahuku 7, Mililani 0, 8:21, Q1.

First chance to see Mililani freshman Dillon Gabriel at QB tonight. Mililani starts on its 19. Quick pass outside is to Sallas for 12. Vavae Malepeai is swallowed up for no gain on his first run as he is tackled by about five guys. Kalakaua Timoteo with a reception for 7 yards. Same play and Timoteo gets 8 more. Timoteo again for 8. Now Malepeai busts loose for 41 yards to the 6. Gabriel tries the fade to Timoteo but throws it way long. Hard count by Gabriel draws Kahuku offsides. Second-and-goal from the 3. Option to Malepeai loses a yard as Keala Santiago makes the stop. Gabriel overthrows Timoteo again and it’s fourth down. Trojans will call timeout. Fourth-and-goal. Kahuku is whistled for offsides. That moves it to the 2. They go to the fade again to Timoteo and he’s out of bounds. Turnover on downs.

Kesi Ah-Hoy back in at QB. He jumps over the pile for 2 yards. Injured Kahuku OL on the play. Replay shows the Mililani interior defensive lineman go straight to the legs on the play. It’s legal. Tamatoa Neher is the injured player. Ah-Hoy picks up 1. Third-and-7. Third-and-9 as Kahuku moves early. Ah-Hoy gets out to the 8 for a 5-yard gain but that’s it. Kahuku will punt. Sallas with a nifty punt return of 16 yards to the Kahuku 34 but a block in the back is called.

Mililani will start at the 50. Gabriel tries to throw a screen to Malepeai but Kahuku is all over it and he has nowhere to go but down for a team sack of 5 yards. Gabriel misses Makana Tauai. Third-and-15. Same play it looked like and Sallas drops it. Mililani will punt.

Kahuku ball on its 35. Make that 30. Another early movement call on Kahuku. Red Raiders with a lot of penalties early. Another flag. Illegal procedure again on Kahuku. Didn’t see this last week out of the same formation against Farrington. It’s a little different with an OIA title up for grabs. Kahuku goes three-wide on first-and-20. Now it’s an illegal shift on Kahuku. Red Raiders timeout. Mililani declined the third penalty so it’s second-and-20. Ah-Hoy keeps for 8. Now Mililani will use its third and final timeout of the half with 1:44 left in the first quarter. Ugly on both sides so far. Third-and-12 at the 33. Ah-Hoy has time but has nobody to throw too. He finally throws late and it’s incomplete. Kahuku will punt.

Fair catch. Mililani starts on its 29. Gabriel works two short 1-yard passes with a 27-yarder to Timoteo. Gabriel then drops it in to Timoteo for an apparent 34-yard catch but Timoteo was out of bounds before he caught it and it’s ruled illegal touching. Hard to see. Refs change the call to illegal participation and it’s a 15-yard penalty. Second-and-19 from the 43. Gabriel is pressured and tries to throw it away but LB Aaron Tapusoa makes a diving catch for a pick. Bad throw by the freshman and Kahuku takes advantage.

Ah-Hoy comes back and throws one right into the hands of LB Aijalon Kolone-Falaniko, who drops it. Ah-Hoy runs for no gain. END 1.

Incomplete pass and Kahuku punts. Red Raiders down it at the 1. Delay of game but I’m not sure it’s even possible to move the ball back. Gabriel throws a long ball that drops in perfectly to Bryson Ventura, who picks up 56 yards on the reception. Latu forces Gabriel out of the pocket and puts a mean hit on him as he throws and Gabriel is down. Flag on the play. Gabriel is hurt. Kahuku is whistled for unsportsmanlike conduct. Gabriel holding his right arm and it doesn’t look good. Sophomore Kaysen Higa in at QB. First-and-10 at the 23. Delay of game on Mililani. Higa has a wide open receiver for a TD and misses him. Second down. Screen goes to Malepeai for no gain and he’s bumped late by Latu. Latu is called for a personal foul. Malepeai runs for a first down to the 5. More whistles. Malepeai loses 2 yards. Higa is now picked in the end zone by Keala Santiago. Santiago returns to the 15.

Brown runs for 6. Brown gets outside now and runs for 20. Third-and-30 after a 15-yard illegal block and two losses. Timeout Kahuku. We’re almost unwatchable at this point. So Mililani gets called for a low block but the 6-yard run by Ah-Hoy counts but the down doesn’t count. Now Ah-Hoy is stopped for no gain but a Mililani player is hurt. It’s fourth-and-8 at the 42 with 6:05 remaining in the half.

Meanwhile, Gabriel is in a sling and taken off on a cart. He looks done for the night. Mililani without its top two quarterbacks now.

Mililani three-and-out. Malepeai runs for 1, late throw to Timoteo is knocked away and Ventura with a 3-yard reception on a quick pass. Illegal formation on the punt. This is just bad, bad football. Now Kahuku completely blows up the punter and is going to get called for roughing. Mililani will have it first-and-10 on the 44. Also, an illegal formation on Mililani. Penalties offset and we will recheck again.

Mililani called for another low block on what otherwise would have been fourth down and Kahuku moves it to the Mililani 45. Brown almost breaks one, getting 11 instead. And he’s a little slow to get up. Ah-Hoy gets 2 and now he’s slow to get up. And a Mililani defender down. DL Elias Pritchard hurt on the play but looks like he’ll be OK. Ameperosa gets 2 on second-and-8 and ANOTHER flag. Long discussion and Kahuku is called for a hold. Add on 15 more for a personal foul after the play. Second-and-31. A holding call is declined. Fourth-and-27 at the 49. Kahuku punts.

Thankfully it’s halftime. Kahuku with 14 penalties in the first half.

HALFTIME BOX
at Aloha Stadium
Kahuku (10-0) 7 0
Mililani (9-1) 0 0
Kah—Harmon Brown 26 run (Kekoa Sasaoka kick)
RUSHING—Kahuku: Brown 9-73, Kesi Ah-Hoy 15-42, Sefa Ameperosa 2-(minus 1). Mililani: Vavae Malepeai 8-56, Dillon Gabriel 2-(minus 5).
PASSING—Kahuku: Ah-Hoy 0-4-0-0. Mililani: Gabriel 8-15-1-119, Kaysen Higa 2-5-1-3.
RECEIVING—Kahuku: none. Mililani: Kalakaua Timoteo 4-50, Bryson Ventura 2-59, Rico Sallas 2-13, Makana Tauai 1-0, Malepeai 1-0.

Second half should kick around 10:20. Teams combined for 20 penalties in the first half.

INJURY UPDATE: Mililani’s Dillon Gabriel suffered a fractured right shoulder and is obviously out for the game and the rest of the season.


Also, Kahuku OL Tamatoa Neher is getting his left knee bandaged up but it looks like he might try and get back out there. Trainers are really checking him over though.

Mililani to receive. Malepeai runs twice for 4 yards and Higa scrambles for 2. Punt.

Kahuku starts on its 36 and we have a flag on the first play after a Kahuku penalty on the punt return. Mililani called for a personal foul. First down Kahuku at the Mililani 49. Neher back in at right guard. Third-and-8 at the 47. Brown picks up 6 and it’s fourth-and-2. Kahuku FB LeRod Tongi is down on the play. He has to be helped off by teammates. Kahuku will go for it. Brown is down right at the marker. Depends on the spot. The head ref signaled first down and the down markers started to move but then York got on the field to yell and now the head ref wants to measure after the markers had moved. Just an unbelievably bad night for the guys in black and white. They measure and Brown is short. Mililani ball. I thought that was the right call.

Trojans trying to get fired up. First-and-10 at the 40. Now Kahuku is calling timeout.

Pesa Lefau is in and blows up Higa for a 6-yard sack. Another play for negative yards but Higa is hit and they call roughing the passer. Penalty no. 15 for Kahuku. Meanwhile a ref still has his mic on. First-and-10 on the 48. Now a false start on Mililani. Higa bounces a throw. Now a low throw. He looks shaken back there. Malepeai runs for minus-3 yards. Illegal shift on Mililani anyway. Punt.

Brown runs for 1 yard and it’s a fumble. DL Isaac Liva picks it up and returns it 27 yards for a Mililani touchdown. We’re tied 7-7, 6:50, Q3.

Trojans try an onsides kick but Kahuku recovers at midfield. Offsides on Mililani though and it will rekick.

Kahuku first-and-10 on its 42. Brown runs for no gain and then Ameperosa can’t handle the snap and loses 10 yards. Illegal substitution on Kahuku. Red Raiders are coming apart. Or maybe not. New QB Cameron Renaud throws one up and Kekaula Kaniho makes a diving catch for 37 yards. That is Kahuku’s first completed pass in at least two games. First down on the Mililani 42. Tongi, who was hurt earlier in the game and came back, is down again on the play. Meanwhile Ah-Hoy is getting his left ankle iced down. He might be done as well. Kahuku lines up a 54-yard field goal and Sasaoka is WAY short. Mililani ball on its 20.

Malepeai runs for 5 and then 10. First-and-10 on the 35. Delay on Mililani. Malepeai up the middle for 13. Third-and-2 on the 43. BAD SNAP. It’s a loss of 17 yards. Mililani’s momentum killed as the Trojans punt with 35 seconds left in the third quarter. Punt hits a Kahuku player and Ramsey Tacadena recovers it on the Kahuku 37.

Higa is hit as he throws and Santiago with his SECOND INT of the game. Ball is thrown right at him as Higa was drilled.

Kahuku ball on the Mililani 44. Meanwhile, Kamehameha just jumped to third in my top-10 vote. (I’m half serious).

Renaud to Kaniho for 17 yards to end the third quarter. Kahuku first-and-10 on the Mililani 39.

Stokes Botelho with a 9-yard reception and then Brown runs for 2. First-and-10 on the 28. Kahuku uses its final timeout. Two incomplete passes as Mililani brings the pressure. Brown gets 3 yards to the 25. Sasaoka to attempt a 42-yard field goal. IT’S GOOD WITH PLENTY OF LEG. Kahuku 10, Mililani 7, 9:51, Q4.

Trojans start on the 20. Malepeai picks up 3. He grabs 4 more but then has to come out on third down because of a helmet and Bradlee Anae stuffs Tauai for a loss of 5. Punt.

Renaud throws one up for grabs and Keala Santiago with the great catch for a 26-yard gain to the Mililani 33. Renaud 5-8, 91 yards, has brought something this Kahuku offense needs.

Brown gets 6 but then loses 6 on the tackle for loss by Kaimana Padello. Third-and-10 at the 33. Brown runs for 6 to set up the field goal try. NO GOOD. Mililani ball on the 20.

Mililani moves early. First-and-15. Timoteo with a drop. Now Higa almost has one picked off over the middle. Higa 2-for-11. Third-and-15. Pass is incomplete. Punt.

Kahuku ball with 4:59 left on its own 49. Reverse to Santiago is good for 21 yards but there’s a flag. Flag is picked up, No hurdling, which is the right call. Ball on the Trojans 30. Renaud sacked but illegal hands to the face penalty. Brown run its down to the 14. First down. Kahuku grinding this one out. Brown to the 7. He has 110 rushing yards now on 24 carries. Brown to the 2. Brown 2-yard TD run with 2:24. That will probably do it. 17-7.

Ventura in at QB and Santiago with his third interception on Ventura’s first pass. That will do it.

Sasaoka adds a 38-yard field goal.

Last time Mililani was held without an offense TD was Oct. 7, 2005 in a 7-0 win over Leilehua. Trojans also will end a 53-game streak of scoring double digits.

  1. Milvil October 30, 2015 11:53 pm

    If Kahuku plays Milton again and wins then hey I’ll eat my words. You say mililani has a weak o-line and yet malepeai averaged 5.8 yards per carry. Sure not to his normal standard but good none the less


  2. GoBigRed October 30, 2015 11:54 pm

    @MilVil – wasn’t that a QB who was shredding your secondary in the second half??? Passing to converted DBs?? And you couldn’t even stop them in obvious passing situations?? REALLY??

    Were you watching the same game?

    HAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!! GO…. cry fo da baby aredy!


  3. Chinatown October 30, 2015 11:55 pm

    Both teams were banged up. Kahuku playing their 4th string QB Nd Mill playing their 3rd string. At the end of the day and when its playoff time…the toughest team wins.


  4. Milvil October 30, 2015 11:57 pm

    Fo? Da? Aredy? Geez you went to school right?


  5. GoBigRed October 30, 2015 11:59 pm

    @MilVil – where was Malepeai when they needed him in the second half?

    No where to be found. Sometimes gaining meaningless yards, but not converting first downs…BECAUSE HE COULDN’T behind that O Line.

    But I look forward to Milton shredding St Louis’ secondary…cuz their defense is average at best…

    We will most likely see you again in the State Game…and hopefully Milton stays healthy. Because we WANT to play him. But your O Line needs to protect him…otherwise you won’t make it back to that game.


  6. MadMax October 30, 2015 11:59 pm

    Lol little red….lol you said stl would lose. Brah, you don’t know football and happy you played and beat a back-up back-up…lol…we all love when your dumb azz post.


  7. Manly October 31, 2015 12:01 am

    Yada,yada if Milton plays. Lol. If Tuli Matagi was not injured last year, Kahuku beats Mili. Injuries is a part of the game, not the what it’s.


  8. Milvil October 31, 2015 12:01 am

    Hmm here’s a thought, maybe malepeai couldn’t do much cause Kahuku was playing run for most of the second half because mililani could not move the ball with there 3rd string qb.


  9. Chinatown October 31, 2015 12:06 am

    Mill has to go through St. Louis to get to the title game…not an easy path but Mill will be favored with Milton back.


  10. GoBigRed October 31, 2015 12:07 am

    @MilVil – My PhD from a PAC 10 school must mean that yes, I went to school. Not to mention my BA in ENGLISH from another PAC 10 school.

    So don’t judge a book by it’s cover. DOH! (Hi Homer).

    I talk dat way cuz I CAN. I don’t know…something about first amendment rights protecting freedom of speech and all dat… Oh…wait…sorry…dat might be a little ovah yo head…

    LMFAO!!! Dis iz a high skool SPORTS website… not a compendium (google it) of like-minded academically inclined individuals (although I’m sure there are quite a few on here).

    So go take your grammar and spelling police act somewhere else… Who knows? Maybe your O Line could use some remedial therapeutic sessions?

    HAHAHAHAAAA! KILLING ME!


  11. 88 October 31, 2015 12:14 am

    It’s to bad I don’t speak LOSER cause I would love to read your posts……


  12. GoBigRed October 31, 2015 12:14 am

    @SillyMaxiPad – go worry about a healthy Milton and Trojans offense.

    Start sweating NOW!! HAHAHHAHAAAAA!!!!


  13. OHHREALLY October 31, 2015 12:15 am

    Just remember that both team had substantial injuries, mililani had both QBs injured while kahuku had 3 RBs injured. Stop the excuses and move on!!!


  14. red x October 31, 2015 12:21 am

    Props to mililani defense and if Milton was playing it would’ve been a whole different ball game. Mililani will be scary team come states and most likely meet Kahuku for round 2. Can’t wait!


  15. GoBigRed October 31, 2015 12:22 am

    22 PENALTIES!! And still WON!

    That was Trojans best offense tonight! Wasn’t enough though!


  16. RRFLbaby October 31, 2015 12:22 am

    Unbelievable some of the comments on here. Sloppy game, but i think both defenses were the primary reason. Its all about next man stepping up. People were still talking about how great trojan O was even without milton, and now that they got shut out, blame it on the 3rd string qb? No doubt, malepeai is a great back, but his stats got padded cause of that ONE long run. Throughout any game, missed opportunities tend to cancel themselves out for both teams. Hats off to the trojan D. But trust me, with the bye, Big Red O gona heal up and learn from this game. Good luck to all the teams in states. RRFL!!!


  17. Paper Crane October 31, 2015 12:23 am

    How sweeet it is;….like you all drive home safely and humble quietly;…we still got somemore tough games ahead so enjoy the victory celebration with style and like god bless our Red Raiders Varsity and Coach Tata/Hao Inc;..mahalo from an alumni/RR4L-1963.


  18. GoBigRed October 31, 2015 12:25 am

    I seem to remember St Louis racking up a BUNCH of penalties ALL YEAR… With all da Crusaders Crybabies …err… ‘fans’… crying about da refs ALL YEAR.

    So don’t sing me this song about how their so masterfully coached… They’ll get their fare share of penalties in States… It’s not like their recruiting their players to THINK…

    HAHAHAHAAAAA!!!


  19. SimpleSimon October 31, 2015 12:25 am

    Never thought I would hear all the excuses from Mililani’s side. They were sooooo confident before the game. Now it’s hurt this, 3rd string that LOL. Very very Interesting!


  20. Insideoutsidein October 31, 2015 12:25 am

    Too all that say it was a poor game, would lose to a ilh team. Relax!!! This is the OIA playing. It’s a rivalry! Stls and puns did their time and they both weren’t impressive playing each other. All these past years an OIA team showed Up at states and took it home. Stls will have to go thru millz if they expect to get to the show. Millz will come back even stronger and would want to face Kahuku again. Stls is in their way and their coaches know it.


  21. A'ole October 31, 2015 12:26 am

    @gobigredfriend know the facts before you say something and make a fool of yourself. Reggie would probably still be the head coach right now if it wasn’t for a retarded principal n athletic director. They’ve also made dumb decisions in regards to the school staff and academics. And before you say they’re st louis alumni, more than half the staff is from kahuku n recruited by st louis back in the day.


  22. SimpleSimon October 31, 2015 12:33 am

    Don’t you all remember York living by his mantra (NEXT MAN UP)? Well looks like he’s wanting is 1st man back lol


  23. rr4l October 31, 2015 12:36 am

    I think the guys that are posting for Saint Louis on here are Mililani ship jumpers lol just like the “MilVil” crowd in the stands HIT DA ROAD! Lol The Fact of the matter is “Kahuku Won” and that’s that! There’s NO should’ve could’ve would’ve crap! Haha RR4L!


  24. GoBigRed October 31, 2015 12:42 am

    Might I remind everyone that Milton not playing was a known factor prior to tonight’s game, and yet EVERYONE (besides us lil’ ‘ol RR4L fanatics) was predicting 20-40 points for Mililani (*ahem* Brien Ing @ ScoringLive)… WITHOUT Milton. Their offense scored ZERO.

    And now? Excuses… Milton this, Milton that…blah blah blah. I seem to remember that LAST year he only threw for 130ish yards and was SHUT DOWN in the second half of last years game…by our defense that was MAYBE (can’t really compare different units) not as good as this year’s defense.

    No one’s talking about how our defense IMPOSED THEIR WILL on Mililani. END OF STORY.

    I could go on and say if Kesi Ah Hoy wasn’t injured our running game would’ve been a lot better… And we probably wouldn’t have given up that fumble for a TD… And then Trojans would’ve had a big GOOSE EGG for their score. But I won’t… oops… sorry… too late.

    Meanwhile, back to reality: 23rd OIA CHAMPIONSHIP secured.

    On to states and a nice bye so our STARters can get healed up… See you in the championship game Trojans! If your defense plays the way it played tonight, you will beat St Louis easily… Especially with Milton back.

    *Singing*
    “In old Kahuku stands our Alma Mater
    Where the salt winds blow day after day
    With her doors flung wide
    For her sons and daughters true
    While the flag of freedom proudly waves above
    Hail Kahuku, Hail our Alma Mater
    Hail to the colors Red and White
    We’ll Cherish, Love, and Honor Thee
    ALL HAIL! KAHUKU! HAIL!!!!”

    (do you guys even KNOW your alma mater???)

    CHEEEEEEHUUUUUUUUU!!!!


  25. GoBigRed October 31, 2015 12:55 am

    Hey Mills… can we buy all those preprinted “MILILANI 2015 OIA CHAMPIONS” t-shirts you guys brought to da game tonight? All 500 of them?

    Kama’aina rate??? We need some rags for our FUNdraising car wash tomorrow.

    CHEEEEEHUUUUUUU!!!!


  26. RRFLbaby October 31, 2015 1:12 am

    Lol. They really had preprinted shirts?
    Yup, whats up brian eng? 40 – 32 right? Milton less trojans were gona score on that untested D? Timoteo is a good receiver and i hope he does well at the next level, but against a secondary with playmakers, he was a non factor. People made a big deal of how the O still produced and of how Big Red didnt play anybody of significance. This game proved a couple things : 1) against a really good D, without Milton, the trojan O is far from elite, 2) even with all the penalties. Which is nothing new, Big Red still got the W, 3) true to form, Big Red’s O is able to pass when needed, 4) trojan D is alot tougher than i thought, 5) ilh fans just continue to speak bubbles. Fact, in the state championship era, OIA 9 – ILH 7


  27. GoBigRed October 31, 2015 1:13 am

    @imitator – nice try… and looks like it took you a LOOOOONNNGGGG time to type that (two fingers technique?)… since it finally showed up and hour later… or maybe it’s just your slow dial-up internet speed…??

    HAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!! Nice try…

    btw – what’s WCC? Seriously…?

    Gooooood night! And don’t let the bed bugs bite… wait… never mind… do you even have a mattress?


  28. Where's Waldo October 31, 2015 1:51 am

    A win is a win is a win — no matter how good, bad or ugly it is!


  29. Mililaniforlife October 31, 2015 1:54 am

    Kahuku dodged a bullett with milton out tonight. If kahuku plays STL their defense gets torched by Tua or a healthy Milton at mililani they loose by three touchdowns easy. State tournament will speak for itself. Kahuku will have easy road to championship only to get beat by Millz or STL. The semi final between St. Louis and mililani with Milton healthy is going to be more entertaining than the state championship.


  30. Crusaders October 31, 2015 2:14 am

    Wow GoBigRed, you’re so tough… Bashing 14-17 year olds behind a computer screen. I wanna be just like you when I grow up. I wanna be able to post 24/7 bc I either have no job or my life is so uneventful that I can just log on and run my mouth on every single forum all day. It must be nice to have a life revolved around teenage boys and their ability to score a touchdown or not. It must also be nice to have a PhD from a top school and waste it all on a computer chair criticizing teens that lost a championship and what they did wrong because in another life I could’ve been an nfl player but I was on the sidelines playing a tuba instead. *sighs* You’re living the dream my man! I admire you.

    Anyways….

    Congrats to the Kahuku kids though, it was well earned!


  31. "UNITY=STRENGHT" October 31, 2015 2:14 am

    2015 HAWAII STATE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP WINNER TAKES ALL AGREED!!!!!!!


  32. Rainbow Samoan October 31, 2015 2:35 am

    Mililani fans stop with excuses , we loss the game and that’s that. Hats off to Kahuku! Great game tonight and great support from both sides. We all know Kahuku and Mililani is the best in the state and let’s just make this year a all OIA state championship because I’m pretty sure mililani or kahuku can beat them overrated crusaders lol. But great game to both sides. #OIA runs the state LOL

    Kahuku, too many penalties and no passing game. Come on 3rd and 20-30 an we still going try run em down the middle?? Really? No offense at all. Mililani you guys just suck.

    @Crusaders. You got it all wrong. It’s BECAUSE I have a great job that I can AFFORD to spend time on here. Doh!!

    Now go look at all the “bashing” of Kahuku ALL SEASON. Then come talk to me. I’m bashing fans. Go see my posts about actual p.l.a.y.e.r.s. (I typed that on purpose so all you ADHD Kahuku bashers don’t miss my emphasis).

    Go cry somewhere else. This is an adult world. Go put away your toys and video games. Lol.

    Whaaaaat? PhD, great job, top education, phenomenal skills at trashing teens and football sage? All in one? You’re that awesome?

    That’s it, for Halloween tonight, I’m gonna be YOU. It’s a night of being an imaginary character and you sir, by far, are the BEST one I’ve ever come across. It’ll be amazing. Thanks for the idea GoBigRed, my video games and toys could never help me dream up that costume. You’re the best 😀


  36. Fact October 31, 2015 7:52 am

    Guys you keep talking about the championship era. Of course the OIA should have more titles. They send 3 teams to the ILH’s 1 team. If we played a game of chance and you got 3 guesses and I got 1, logic would dictate you will win. You have more choices therefore you have a higher success rate of winning. That really doesn’t help your argument.

    Scientifically speaking, when it was one on one the ILH dominated. I find it kind of odd that several people keep using the championship era as data to strengthen their argument but in reality it’s just weakening it.

    Of course you will win more. 3/6 is far better odds than 1/6. If this was Vegas are you telling me you would pick odds of 17% over 50%. I’m objective and the numbers aren’t event close. If I could get 50% at Vegas I’d be a millionaire. Unfortunately odds are never that good, unless we are talking the OIA’s representation in the Champonship Era as you guys are mentioning.

    I think you need stronger evidence to support your argument. 50% vs. 17% (really 16.67%) doesn’t really make your argument very strong.

    I agree with crusaders…gobigred is a loser.
    Congrats Kahuku, lets go OIA and rep two in the state finals.


  38. SimpleSimon October 31, 2015 8:15 am

    Excuses excuses excuses! That’s all I hear from the Trojan side. Ever since Milton went down, their backup QB has been playing well enough for you Trojans to keep talking trash, saying they will still destroy everyone. Now all i hear is “Milton out this, Milton out that” yada yada yada!!! hahaha So sad!


  39. SimpleSimon October 31, 2015 8:17 am

    By the way how are we supposed to know there’s immature teenagers commenting here? You should all be doing your homework 😉 Get off the computer!!! Ua mau ke ea or ka aina i ka pono

    To GoBidRed, Maam, anyone can come on a blog and make up any kind of story. Do you care to post a digital image of your PhD and BA? I personally challenge you to:

    1) Post 2 digital images of your college diplomas of your advanced degrees
    2) List your specific job
    3) Give us your name to authenticate that you do hold this job

    Until you do this I am the Governor of Hawaii, David Ige. I am sure no one believes me, just like no one believes you maam

    While I’m looking for Waldo.. Has anyone seen John Pau and Ewaewa?


  42. Lee Boy October 31, 2015 8:52 am

    Congrats to Kahuku OIA champs!! Milvil is right with Milton Playing is a different story like I say before. It’s tough to win with a third string QB. Everyone saw how you stop the run! This ia the year of the Crusaders!!!!!


  43. 88 October 31, 2015 9:08 am

    How you going say they stopped the run when all Kahuku’s TD’s came off of runs.. They slowed it down but they couldn’t stop nothing. If they did they would be the Champions today. Only thing that got stopped was Mililanis Historic 57 points a game offense. Best RB and best WR in the state looked like every other RB and WR Kahuku faced. You guys killing me with the “If Milton played” excuse. The result would of been the same. All year long Kahuku beat every and any team they played and do people say, “Oh Kahuku played in the weak Red Div.” and ” Waite until they play Mililani”. Well they did and they made the most prolific offense look horrific.


  44. Lee Boy October 31, 2015 11:09 am

    88- now you are being silly, you made a third string QB look horrific. You are right you are OIA champ. Your first touchdown came off a muff punt after Mililani stop your mighty run. Enjoy your victorty well deserve. See you in the states


  45. 88 October 31, 2015 11:26 am

    Gabriel is not 3rd string and Kahuku’s D made the best RB and WR in the state look horrific. C’mon buddy it’s time for you to jump on board already. It’s okay I won’t say “I told you so”……


  46. TGOD October 31, 2015 11:30 am

    Proud of the Mililani boys, good jobs by the coaches, they’re not making any excuses cause in football it is “next man up”. Congrats to the Kahuku boys and coaches on another OIA championship. I’m a proud parent and supporter, and hope to see some of this local talent from both sides stay home and play for Hawaii as we need it.

    Now for the State Championship, where one team will prove once and for all who is the best team in 2015. If they can get past the Crusaders and the rest, I’m looking for a rematch of these teams with an exciting end to the season.


  47. TRUE STORY October 31, 2015 11:34 am

    Milton Milton Milton, if this, if that…..football is a TEAM sport. Learn to adapt to what you have. Our starting QB (Mareteragi) went down the first game , our starting RB (Amperosa) down a few games later. Nobody chirping about that. A TEAM adapts to what THEY have. Maybe York shouldnt put all his eggs in one basket (QB position). But hey if you guys wanna play the Milton card…..we lose some of the states best every year to ILH schools. Tuliloa, Talaupapa and not to mention a few at Kamehemeha and a bunch at St. Louis and your guys impact player last night, soph. MLB Olomua, yes all from us. Thats just the present day, we not even talking about the past (Ornalles, Welch, Tufaga, Keo to name a few). Its all good though, we get plenty. York’s “next man up” should be our saying every year. We understand that its a hard pill to swallow. I laugh every week when get ILH recruiters showing up at our big boy practices and games taking our boys….lmao. Dont feel bad, NCAA recruiters do the same thing. Everybody knows……if you want BEASTS, you gotta go to the jungle.

    The best of luck to mililani in the states.i hope u guys heal up and come back strong.i really would love to see Milton back in the action.prayers for a speedy , and full recovery .mililani “D” was pretty impressive last nite .they slowed down our run and it was nice to see kahuku being forced in to passing situations, not bad for a team who runs 99% of the time.i won’t be surprised to see these two teams battle it out for the state championship title.good luck to the Trojans and GO BIG RED!!!


  49. kahuku#1 October 31, 2015 11:53 am

    @TGod ….great comment.i would love to have a all oia finals .wouldn’t that be nice……good luck to your team!!!


  50. Oia#1 October 31, 2015 12:24 pm

    FACT, your theory is flawed aswell, ILH division has ONLY 4 teams in their division, OIA has 14 teams. Basically we have 3x the amount therefore we send 3 teams. Get it?
