On this date in 1982, Pearl City Sandy Obra just absolutely refused to give up.
Obra directed his quarterbacks to put up 42 passes but Waianae stole 10 of them in a 41-7 victory for the Seariders in front of 3,966 at Aloha Stadium.
The 10 picks set an OIA record established by Kahuku against Farrington way back in 1973.
Pearl City quarterback Kamaki Alejado entered the game as the division’s leading passer and had thrown only five interceptions in 119 attempts. He had nine picks on 29 passes against Waianae. Backup David Hallums had the other one.
That was the biggest blowout of Waianae’s year. The Seariders ended up winning the OIA title but losing to Pac-Five, which beat Saint Louis on this date in 1982, in the Prep Bowl.
