Contrary to rumor, Nanakuli is not forfeiting its win over Kaiser.
Oahu Interscholastic Association football coordinator Harold Tanaka said on Tuesday that Nanakuli is playing in the OIA White title game next week.
“There’s nothing going on to my knowledge,” Tanaka said of the rumored investigation into possible ineligible players who participated in last week’s 28-21 win over Kaiser.
Over on the Big Island, what’s fact and not rumor is that Ka‘u has forfeited this weekend’s game against Kamehameha-Hawaii. ESPN Hawaii radio’s Josh Pacheco wrote on Tuesday night at Big Island Now that the Trojans’ administration had e-mailed him. Due to safety concerns arising from a decrease in players showing up to practice — doesn’t this sound like Kohala all over again? — Ka‘u has made the sensible decision.
Along with the forfeit win over Kohala next week, this means the Trojans have closed shop for the season. This comes after a 78-0 home loss to Honokaa, which had followed a 91-8 home loss to Konawaena.
