It was an uptempo, high-voltage offensive attack by Kapolei, opening a 17-point lead before hanging on for a 27-24 win over Aiea on Friday night.

Quarterbacks Tama Amisone, with 276 yards and two touchdowns from scrimmage, and Tuli Tagovailoa-Amosa (two TD passes) sparked the Hurricanes’ offense. Aiea never surrendered, bringing constant pressure against the elusive Amisone. Aiea QB Ezekiel Olie and his talented receiving corps picked up where they left off last year.

Na Alii had the ball after recovering an on-side kick with 18 seconds left, giving Hurricane fans a potentially dangerous final sequence.

    That first kick off looks like it should have been a penalty against Aiea. Was it called?
