Power teams line up appetizing FB scrimmages

Kahuku and Farrington used to battle for OIA East supremacy, but are not in the same conference this season. They won't play during the regular season, but they will face each other in an early August scrimmage at Kahuku. In photo, Sefa Ameperosa dove into the end zone during the OIA playoffs last season.

Power scrimmages anyone?

Well, if you don’t think Oahu high school football is that close, think again.

Teams statewide have been preparing for the fall season throughout the spring and now summer. The first scheduled scrimmage is 33 days a way (Thursday, June 28), slightly more than month. A week after that, real nonleague games begin (Friday, Aug. 5). And then it’s one week later until the regular-season games start (Friday, Aug. 12).
