On this date in 1982, Lakei Heimuli shrugged off a hamstring injury and Kahuku beat Farrington 7-0 to win the OIA East title in front of 11,229 wet fans at Aloha Stadium.
Red Raiders coach Clarence Lavarias told the media before the game that linebacker Sekeli Wily would be moving to the offense. He kept his word, but Heimuli still received the bulk of the carries. Wily served as the lead blocker and made all of the difference. Kahuku quarterback Darren Johnson didn’t complete a single pass against the Governors.
Wily still played defense in the shutout and Derek Anderson played what defensive coach Lester Souza called “his best game ever.” That led to the Red Raiders shutout. The Govs had only 25 yards rushing and one yard passing. Wily forced a fumble that set up Kahuku’s lone score.
Kahuku lost the OIA championship the next week when Waianae shut the Red Raiders down 17-0. Wily didn’t have a carry.
