By Billy Hull on October 24, 2013

Kickoff is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. 4:25 p.m.: Mililani linebacker Dayton Furuta is not expected to play because of an ankle injury. 4:38 p.m.: Just about to kick off. Worthy of note: Kahuku starts only one senior on defense. Five juniors, three sophomores and two […]

Tonga, Kahuku defense bottle up Waianae

By Nick Abramo on October 21, 2013

Waianae quarterback Kekoa Kaluhiokalani ran the option offense smoothly all season long. He ran into a major problem, however, in the Seariders’ 45-20 season-ending loss to Kahuku on Friday night, facing pressure from everywhere along the Red Raiders’ defensive front. Kaluhiokalani was tackled behind the line of scrimmage 11 times and finished with minus-63 yards rushing on 14 attempts. Compare that to Kaluhiokalani’s output of 423 yards on 104 carries in nine previous games and the picture of a stout […]

Mililani’s defense is for real

By Billy Hull on October 20, 2013

Maybe the headline on this post is stating the obvious, but it’s worth repeating after Mililani’s 21-9 win over Leilehua on Saturday in the OIA Red quarterfinals. The Trojans’ defense is legit. Mililani’s defensive unit failed to give up a single point as Leilehua scored on a fumble return for a touchdown and a safety. The Mules, who had scored 66 against Waipahu and 54 versus Moanalua in their last two games, were held to 145 total yards of offense. […]

LIVE BLOG: Mililani 21, Leilehua 9, Final

By Billy Hull on October 19, 2013

We’re set for kickoff at John Kauinana Stadium for the final OIA Red quarterfinal game. Mililani beat the Mules, 44-14, just three weeks ago here. Can Leilehua not only make it a game, but pull off the upset? 6:18 p.m.: Four different Trojans record a rush of at least 10 yards on Mililani’s opening drive. Vavae Malepeai fumbles at the 1 but Jacob Afele falls on top of it and Mililani takes a 7-0 lead, 7:26 Q1. 6:20 p.m.: Justin […]

Focused Kahuku takes care of business

Every once in a while, a coach will speak volumes of truth in one sentence. Reggie Torres did that Friday night

May the man for Campbell

By Jerry Campany on October 19, 2013

In many ways, running back Austin May is the forgotten man in Campbell’s pass-happy offense. But McKinley might never forget him after the Sabers beat the Tigers 40-13 at Campbell in the OIA Red quarterfinals on Friday night. May, the fifth-leading rusher in the seven-team OIA Red West, was overshadowed all season by quarterback Isaac Hurd and his fleet bunch of receivers despite his 330 yards and 5.8 per carry. Whenever Campbell needed a yard or two, Hurd would go […]
