    What can I say, the best championship game ever. Both teams are really outstanding. It could have been either way.

    Just bad play calling and some dub decisions by our boys on the last drive. STL has 3 timeouts and only has to use 1? And we get a first down and STL only has to use 1 first down? Running out of bounds to stop the clock on more than 1 occasion? That is the stuff you learn in pee wee football. If the coaches followed the game plan I told them about the game would have been over by the half.

    This is video evidence that Saint Lulu was holding almost every single play and it wasn’t called. It’s comical how one sided and slanted the refereeing way. Incompetence or conspiracy? you decide. But what we do know is that Kahuku is hated in the state and the HHSAA doesn’t want us to win

    Despite questionable and unquestionable calls, Big Red showed up and proved all the naysayers wrong. Most believed St Louis unbeatable, untouchable and unreachable…well we believe, support and cheer our boys to play the best they can and we will back them up to he’ll and back. That’s what we do for our family, our team and our Red Raider Nation. Hold your heads high and be proud of all you’ve accomplished in the face of all the challenges before you.
    Congratulations to the men of Kalaepohaku…enjoy the trophy because we will be there next to take it back, be there too.

    It was a great game! However, in many games the RR not only had to play against the teams, they also had to play through adversity against the Black and White stripes. And, they (Officials) can make all the difference.

    We expect to have Referees who will maintain the highest standards of officiating, be consistent, and fair. The Oahu Referee Association should review each game and hold the Refs accountable and perhaps fine them for every wrong call or penalty that should’ve been called. And, if a Ref is an Alumni of that specific school, then he (Mike Goshima) shouldn’t be officiating in that game. They should read and adhere to their own mission statement.

    Oahu Referees Association – Mission & Purpose
    To provide qualified football officials to officiate High School and Youth football games in support of interscholastic athletics including those of the Oahu Interscholastic Association (OIA), Interscholastic League of Honolulu (ILH), and various youth football leagues, and to promote the welfare of interscholastic athletics through the encouragement of the spirit of fair play, safe play, and sportsmanship in High School and Youth Football programs; and to provide an educational program to train, test, and advance the skills of football officials to maintain the highest standards of sports officiating through education.

    I agree. There needs to be an independent investigation of the Hawaii Referee union. David Ige, please get on this if you’re not bought out by the ILH Agenda too. We all know who the real champions are this year: Kahuku Red Raiders. Saint Lulu is nothing without the refs rigging the game for them

    You guys are unreal… keep complaining about the referees. Anywaaays!!! I hope you do contact ige and gripe about the refs. Please let me know how much he ends up laughing at your ridiculous complaints. I hope our governer has better things to do then deal with this petty business. Do you all realize these are amateur refs?? Their were bad calls on both sides. Didn’t sol-jay fumble the ball when he was sacked? No call by the refs. Why don’t all you people who complain about the poor officiating become referees yourself? You all seem to think you’re more than capable of being unbiased/100% correct refs. Kahuku fans like the ones that post here are a bad representation of the school and football team. It’s thanks to people like you that make me dislike kahuku. But keep whining… I enjoy reading all the crybabies on here.

    Hovah808 = Education First. A sad excuse of a man who hates on Kahuku in the service of the ILH agenda

  10. Dfuj November 20, 2017 2:03 pm

    anywaaays- if i recall you are the educated one that was bitching about the ILH allstars? check yourself before you bash others. Suck it up St.Louis is State Champs not Kahuku and it doesn’t matter what you say!

  11. Hawaiian50 November 23, 2017 7:15 am

    anywaaaays you should stop your whining and bitching cause you sound like a damn crybaby, oh wait you are…Just except the fact that you guys lost and that “your coaches” blew the game for you guys when you guys decided to run out of bounds not once, but twice stopping the clock and not forcing St. Louis to use their timeouts…The better team won so just accept it
