In the rain, the Hilo Vikings are in their element. The Viks withstood a comeback attempt by Leilehua for a 19-9 win in the Division I semifinal round of the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA State Championships on Saturday night at Dr. Francis Wong Stadium.

Whether it was the ability to throw water-logged footballs or avoid the slippery pitfalls of the outfield grass and mud at Wong Stadium, the Vikings were well equipped to defend their turf.
